I wasn’t surprised that after years of writing and performing together in Good Charlotte, brothers Joel and Benji Madden formed their own project. I was surprised how much I liked their first official single, “We Are Done.” With just enough harmony-driven pop vocals to transition me from familiarity into “Okay, I’ll give this a shot,” the ’60s-inspired song was written with veteran producer Eric Valentine (Good Charlotte, Taking Back Sunday, Third Eye Blind).


Now the Madden Brothers have made their debut album available for pre-order, and with a name like Greetings From California, my curiosity is piqued. Pre-orders will include an instant download of “We Are Done” and additional track “California Rain.” The album will be released on September 16th via Capitol Records. Until then, I’ll be keeping an eye out for future Madden Brothers tracks in the hopes of getting a more complete picture of what their newest project is shaping up to be!
