The Madden Brothers have announced an Australian tour kicking off this October to celebrate the release of their debut album, Greetings From California. The album is slated for release Friday, 12th September and has already yielded a platinum-certified smash single, We Are Done.
“The idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, but rather to write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically,” said Benji of the new album, which bears the Maddens’ trademark melodicism and classic sibling harmonies.
“It’s been awesome to have music out there again after the last four years. We went away to make music, so we’ve kind of been in this little bubble,” said Joel on the latest episode of Music Feeds Podcast. “To finally let people hear [the album] and to be able to talk about music is kind of a relief.”
“We kinda had this appetite to do things musically we kinda felt like we couldn’t do,” the guys added, saying their latest album “wasn’t a business decision,” but came out of an ongoing need for something new. Their ’70s pop-inspired direction has still converted plenty of Good Charlotte fans.
The Madden Brothers have had a devoted following in Australia since they first released an album as the creative core of Good Charlotte. The two then became honorary Aussies in their own right through Joel‘s role as a coach on The Voice and together as co-coaches on The Voice Kids.
The pair’s Australian tour will see them playing dates in Melbourne, Sydney, the Gold Coast, Adelaide, and Perth. Ever ones to please their fans, all shows on the Madden Brothers’ upcoming tour will be All Ages. Readers can check below for all dates and venue and ticketing details.
