Rock act Good Charlotte will release its next album, “The Chronicles of Life and Death,” Oct. 5 via Epic. Two different editions of the set will be offered, each with its own unique album art. The first 14 cuts on each are the same, but the final track on “Life” will be “Falling Away,” while “Meet My Maker” will close “Death.”
The first single, “Predictable,” debuted at No. 38 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart. Fans who pre-order the album via Good Charlotte’s Web site (goodcharlotte.com) will receive a two-track bonus disc. Also available exclusively from the site starting today (Sept. 7) is a 12-track authorized live bootleg.
“The Chronicles of Life and Death” is the follow-up to 2002’s “The Young and the Hopeless,” which debuted at No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Rounding out the band’s Oct. 5 release schedule is the DVD “Live at Brixton,” taped in December 2003 in England. Fans who pre-order the release from Good Charlotte’s site will receive a free, limited-edition poster.
The band is expected to hit the road this fall in support of the new album.
