Good Charlotte Signs With UTA For Worldwide Representation
Good Charlotte has signed with UTA for worldwide representation in all areas. The multi-platinum pop-punkers are managed by MDDN, the company owned by the band's Benji and Joel Madden.
"We are very excited to be in business with such an energetic, creative and innovative agency," Benji Madden said in a statement. "Our company MDDN has already had a great time working alongside UTA on several projects and we feel that this partnership with Good Charlotte will only bring more success for everyone involved."
The twin Madden brothers’ MDDN management roster also includes several UTA artists, including Anti Flag, Architects, Big Jesus, Counting Days and Sleeping With Sirens. Other MDDN artists include The Madden Brothers, Hollywood Undead, Jessie J and more.
Good Charlotte has also just announced a Canadian tour slated for April with U.S. dates in May along with European and UK dates in June.
Good Charlotte is originally from Waldorf, Maryland and has had five top 40-charting albums on the Billboard 200, including three top 10s and sold 6.1 million albums in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. The band's self-titled debut dropped in 2000 and was followed by 2002’s The Young and the Hopeless which featured the single “Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous" and sold nearly 5 million copies. The band released 2004’s platinum The Chronicles of Life and Death, 2007’s Good Morning Revival and 2010’s Cardiology before going on an extended hiatus.
The Maddens reunited in 2015 with bassist Paul Thomas, guitarist/keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth and released the single “Makeshift Love" and performed their first show since 2010 at L.A.'s Troubadour. The band released its sixth studio album, Youth Authority last July through MDDN and Kobalt Music Group.
