Good Charlotte have just dropped a new track called “Shadowboxer”—and living up to its title, the track packs a massive punch.
While the band have experimented with poppier, electronic-influenced sounds over the years, “Shadowboxer” is rock through-and-through. It’s one of the most hard-hitting tracks on the boys’ discography and we’re all for it.
The track kicks off with a wall of sound before Joel Madden’s unmistakable voice enters. “I remember suffering with every single word there saying / I could always feel them,” he sings. It builds up to a chorus fueled by raw screaming vocals and crunching guitars. Just three words to sum things up: It. Knocks. Hard.
The track’s a nice return from one of the biggest pop punk acts in history—proving that the band have definitely still got it even after all these years.
