History

Twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden formed The Madden Brothers officially in 2014 as a side project separate from Good Charlotte, but have origins dating back to 2011.[3] While with Good Charlotte, Joel was mainly the lead vocalist with Benji being lead guitarist and backup vocalist.[4] They released a total of five studio albums, two live albums, two extended plays, twenty singles, seventeen music videos and three music DVDs. All of their studio albums received certification including The Young and the Hopeless, which was certified 3× Platinum in the United States and reached number 1 on the Canadian Albums Chart.[5] During their time with Good Charlotte, the brothers saw the sale of over ten million albums worldwide.[6]

Joel and Benji had been working on The Madden Brothers project since 2011 when they began working on different ways of music.[7] They released a free mixtape a short time later in October 2011.[8] Titled Before — Volume One, it included collaborations with artists such as Casey Veggies, Wiz Khalifa, Machine Gun Kelly, Rockie Fresh, and The Cool Kids and was said to be made simply for the fun of music.[9]

The Madden Brothers began working with producer Pharrell Williams and planned to release an album in late 2012.[7] The plans fell through for the album release but both continued to work on the project.[6] In 2013, the Madden Brothers lend their voices to animated versions of themselves in the form of two characters, depicted as twin lizard punk rockers and brothers (hence their tattoo-like stripes and/or spots on their scaly skins) created by Michael Patterson.

The Madden Brothers finally released their first single in June 2014. Titled "We Are Done", the song was placed in regular rotation in major markets and became a top 40 track on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and Alternative Radio charts.[2] It is a song about standing up for yourself according to Benji, made to inspire people to speak up for themselves.[10] The song is from the album Greetings from California, produced by Eric Valentine and Joe Chiccarelli, which was released on September 16, 2014.[3]

The Madden Brothers were coaches on the inaugural season of The Voice Kids Australia as well as Benji joining Joel as a coach on season 4 of The Voice Australia.
