“The Voice Kids Australia” coaches Joel and Benji Madden are set to tour the country to celebrate the release of their debut album “Greetings from California.”
The Good Charlotte founders, who call themselves together as the band The Madden Brothers, will kick off their tour in Melbourne on October 31 before they head to Sydney, the Gold Coast, Adelaide and Perth.
The nationwide tour comes after the success of their debut single “We Are Done,” with has been certified Platinum after topping the singles charts in both Australia and New Zealand.
“The idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, but rather to write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically,” Benji told Music Feeds of their new album.
“It’s been awesome to have music out there again after the last four years. We went away to make music, so we’ve kind of been in this little bubble,” Joel added. “To finally let people hear [the album] and to be able to talk about music is kind of a relief.”
The twins are co-coaches in the reality TV competition show “The Voice Kids,” where they are reportedly getting paid $1 million each.
“Greetings From California” is set to hit stores on September 12.
