GOOD CHARLOTTE’S JOEL & BENJI MADDEN SALUTE SO CAL WITH ROCKIN’ NEW RELEASE, GREETINGS FROM CALIFORNIA

Good Charlotte‘s Joel and Benji Madden dropped their debut album as The Madden Brothers last month, titled Greetings from California, and we’ve had the first single, “We Are Done” on a near constant loop ever since.

Greetings from California was released on September 19 and was inspired by SoCal (we’ve spotted the Maddens hanging Coffee Bean Sunset quite a few times) and includes enough catchy guitar hooks and anthemic choruses to keep Good Chalotte fans satiated while also pushing the band further up the charts in the pop-rock arena.

Chart-topper Pharell Williams brings a happy, upbeat vibe to the album as a guest writer on the cool and catchy, Lenny Kravitz-like “California Rain.”

The Madden Brothers is currently touring Australia through November. Can’t wait to check out the band when its international Greetings from California tour makes its way stateside early next year.

Plus, we’ll never tire of hearing this timeless GC track…
