    Pop punkers Good Charlotte are proud to announce that they have signed to Capitol Records and will be releasing their highly anticipated fifth full-length album Cardiology on October 26, 2010, almost exactly 10 years after their self-titled debut put them on the map as one of the most exciting bands of the decade. Originally formed as a pop-punk band in Waldorf, Maryland, in 1996, Good Charlotte—vocalist Joel Madden, guitarist Benji Madden, guitarist Billy Martin, bassist Paul Thomas and the latest edition, drummer Dean Butterworth—have sold over 10 million records to date and penned countless mainstream radio hits such as "The Anthem," "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" and "Hold On." However, the Brothers Madden get more press for the celebrities they date than their music anymore. Joel has two offspring with Nicole Richie, while Benji dated Paris Hilton and Holly Madison. Their dating resumes are impressive, but their music? That's waned in the past few years.

    The official press statement says that the band will continue its adventurous musical persona continues with Cardiology, an album that features everything from the dance floor-friendly first single "Like It's Her Birthday" to future GC anthems such as "Silver Screen Romance," while still effortlessly retaining the band's signature sound in the process. While in some ways Cardiology is a return to form for these multiple Warped Tour headliners, it also manages to work in elements from throughout the band's classic catalog to create an album that simultaneously summarizes what Good Charlotte are all about and hints at where they are headed in the future.

    The band is set to embark on a full US tour early next year.

    Joel or Benji? Who do you prefer?
