We’ve been waiting for it since the release of their last album, and now Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden and his twin brother Benji have finally announced their brand new project: The Madden Brothers. The band’s upcoming debut album will be titled Greetings From California… and is set for release on October 7th via Capitol Records.
The album will be split into two sides. One side will consist of what’s being referred to as ‘sunny pop-rock’, produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine (Taking Back Sunday, Third Eye Blind). The other side, ‘a blend of folk, southern rock and ’70s-era FM pop’, produced by the incredible Joe Chiccarelli (the White Stripes, the Strokes).
“The idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre,” Says Benji Madden, “But rather to write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically.”
The band’s first single, ‘We Are Done’ will be out June 2nd, accompanied by a brand new lyric video.
