Model music company BMG is proud to announce it 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 the past 20 years. 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 (2016), the band’s first record after 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. 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 very happy to announce this partnership and are committed to letting creativity continue to lead the way,” says Benji and Joel Madden.

Tom ‘Grover’ Biery, EVP Recorded Music, BMG US, adds: “BMG thrives on creating authentic partnerships with artists and working alongside Good Charlotte and MDDN is a perfect example. 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.
