BMG has entered into a worldwide partnership with multi-platinum, rock band Good Charlotte and their MDDN label to release the band's forthcoming new studio album later this year.
Good Charlotte has cemented their legacy as one of the most popular and influential rock bands of modern time. With Top 10 charting albums The Young and the Hopeless, The Chronicles of Life and Death and Good Morning Revival and hit singles 'The Anthem', 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous' and 'I Just Wanna Live', the massively popular quintet have sold more than 11 million albums worldwide.
The group's as-yet-untitled forthcoming album follows the release of Youth Authority, the band's first album following a five-year hiatus and first release on the Madden brothers' newly formed MDDN label. Continuing to inspire a crop of younger artists, their music lives on as legions of new listeners discover the band daily.
"We feel our partnership with BMG is a natural one, as we've been fortunate enough to see firsthand their commitment to the artists they're in business with," said Benji and Joel Madden. "As the momentum for Good Charlotte continues to build in this new chapter of our career, BMG has consistently demonstrated the type of forward thinking, artist friendly, entrepreneurial spirit that we really relate to and is in line with the way we want our business to feel. We are vey happy to announce this partnership and are committed to letting creativity continue to lead the way."
Tom 'Grover' Biery, EVP Recorded Music, BMG US, said, "BMG thrives on creating authentic partnerships with artists and working alongside Good Charlotte and MDDN is a perfect fit. Benji and Joel have an exciting vision for the group and their new music, and we look forward to helping them fulfill that vision – sharing it with fans worldwide."
