We all wanted to stand on stage together again, as a band,” explains Benji Madden about their decision to come out of hiatus for this surprise show. “We wanted to do it especially for our fans at home in America, and share this special moment.” Aside from being current LA residents (the band originally formed in Waldorf, MD), the significance of the Troubadour is a special one, as Benji reminisced with Alternative Press about their self-titled album tour in 2000: “We played the Troubadour and Eric Valentine came out to see us in front of our fans. That night we decided we would go into the studio together and make the next record, which would become The Young and The Hopeless.“
Makeshift Love will be available to stream exclusively on Apple Music and for purchase exclusively on iTunes today at 9:30am PT/12:30pm ET until Saturday, November 7th and afterwards on all online retailers.
As an authentic return to form, Makeshift Love is a classic pop-punk song that fits perfectly within their oeuvre, both sonically and lyrically. The song that brings the band out of their hiatus ironically is a song about breaking up. “Like all our breakup songs, it’s kind of a ‘non-break-up break-up song’,” he laughs. “In our music, there has always been some hope that it will all work out and, just like all of our affectionately sarcastic songs of the past, there is the same duality in this song too.”
