"We don't really feel the need to rush," says singer JOEL MADDEN of the band's first album since 2004's platinum-selling Chronicles Of Life And Death. "We just want it to be right and as time has gone on and things have developed, we feel the need to spend more time to make it exactly the way we want it. We won't let our fans down."
GOOD CHARLOTTE are recording their new album with Don Gilmore, who produced the band's self-titled debut, in addition to working with such acts as Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne and Pearl Jam. Feeding off of GILMORE's energy, JOEL says, "We did like 40-some demos before we even started with Don. I think we kept three."
