Madden Brothers Postpone Upcoming Tour


Anyone looking forward to the Madden Brothers hitting the road later this month have sadly been given bad news about it; the tour has been postponed.

Writing to fans on their social media accounts, the brothers revealed that their plans on hitting the road to promote their album, Greetings From California had been postponed until 2015.

In the statement, they explain that, “Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will need to postpone the US tour dates until 2015. We appreciate all your support this year and hope to see all of you in the new year! All refunds can be made at the point of purchase. #vibes”

The Madden Brothers, which like their act’s name states is a new project from Benji and Joel Madden formerly of Good Charlotte. The brothers released Greetings From California back in September and this US tour would be their first time heading out on a nationwide tour for it. Front Porch Step and Keta were suppose to, or probably still will be, supporting them.

Now postponed tour dates can be seen below.

Nov 18, 2014 – San Francisco, CA
Nov 20, 2014 – Philadelphia, PA

The Madden Brothers Send ‘Greetings from California’


If you follow one of the many bands that we do on Twitter, then yesterday (and today) you probably saw many of them congratulating Joel and Benji Madden on the release of their debut album as The Madden Brothers.

Over the past few months, the duo have been releasing tracks from the record, Greetings from California. Songs released to date included lead single, “We Are Done” as well as “Dear Jane,” “California Rain,” and most recently, “Out of My Mind.”

Greetings from California was officially released yesterday (Sept. 12) through Capitol Records, which would explain all the congratulations the brothers got from their band friends.

In honor of the release date, the former Good Charlotte dudes gave fans the chance to listen to the album in full, for free, on Spotify. You can head on over to the music streaming site now or just click the play button on the widget below.

Enjoy and let us know what you think about the direction they have gone in.

Listen to The Madden Brothers’ “Dear Jane”


Another week and another Madden Brothers track has been released. The new song is titled “Dear Jane” and like their previously released tracks, the song is taken off of the duo’s upcoming debut record Greetings from California. The album is set to officially drop on Oct. 7 through Capitol Record.

“Dear Jane” now joins recently released tracks “Out of My Mind,” “California Rain,” and their first single, “We Are Done.”

When asked where the idea came from to go somewhat solo or at least away from the Good Charlotte name, Benji Madden responded that “the idea was to not hide behind a band name or 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.”

Considering all the time they spent being the anti-pop stars calling out the rich and famous, they have really come a long way. Remember: Joel is married to a reformed bad girl/celebutante and Benji is dating a Hollywood A-list actress.

Things do change.

Listen to the Madden Brothers’ “California Rain”


It’s been several months since the Madden Brothers released their first track sans Good Charlotte, “We Are Done” which incredible has become an instant smash with fans and casual listeners. Good-bye are the days of “The Young and the Hopeless.”

Today, the twin brothers who now go by, no shock, the Madden Brothers, have released the lyric video for what we can assume will become their second single, “California Rain.”

The first impression of the song is that the duo tried to get as close to the Beatles as possible without completely giving up their pop-punk roots. You can’t lie and say that “little darling” in the chorus doesn’t give you that impression.

Both “We Are Done” and “California Rain” will be featured on the brothers’ debut record Greetings from California due out on September 12 through Capitol Records.

The Madden Brothers Release Music Video


When The Madden Brothers premiered a new song, fans of Good Charlotte or at least those casual fans, began to wonder what happened to the band that got them through middle (and some) high school. 

It turned out that the group had disbanded and no body even knew about it. Instead, Joel and Benji Madden went on to form their own project, fittingly called The Madden Brothers. 

At that time, they had released their first single, “We Are Done” on Ryan Seacrest’s syndicated  radio show, On the Air with Ryan Seacrest. Now, the official video for the duo’s debut track has been released.

Check out the clip below.

The song will be featured on their upcoming album, Greetings from California which is scheduled to be released on September 15 through Capitol Records.

Now, the question is, is “We are Done” just a title or a direct confirmation about the demise of the band.

Madden Brothers Release Debut Song


Our pop-rock, teenaged self were a little bummed to find out that Good Charlotte called it a day without much warning nor headlines. Heck, we still aren’t even sure if the band formally split up or if they’re pulling a blink-182/Fall Out Boy and put the group on hiatus for a bit.

One thing we can definitely be sure of is that Benji and Joel Madden have gone off to form their own project named, what else, The Madden Brothers.

Today, the twin bros debut their first, new single under the new moniker titled, “We Are Done.” The song comes for The Madden Brothers’ debut album, Greetings From California which is set to be released through Capitol Records on October 7.

The song officially premiered this morning on Ryan Seacrest’s syndicated radio show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest which is why there’s a little talky-talky going on before the song.
