Youth Authority’ is clearly the work of a band that understands what made it successful in the first place, and wants that success back again ” – Rolling Stone Australia
Good Charlotte’s sixth studio album ‘Youth Authority’ takes the top spot on the ARIA album chart giving the band their second # 1 album in Australia.
Good Charlotte’s brand new album ‘Youth Authority’ has debuted at # 1 here in Australia this week. This marks the second time the band have landed an ARIA # 1 with ‘The Chronicles Of Life And Death’ snaring the top spot back in 2004. More recently The Madden Brothers 2014 album ‘Greetings From California’ and single ‘We Are Done’ both enjoyed ARIA # 1’s. The early success of ‘Youth Authority’ continues to prove there has been no love lost here for these adopted aussie sons.
“Huge thank you to all of the Australian GC fans, and everyone who helped make Youth Authority #1. We are sincerely grateful for the support on this record, and the GC comeback, and we can’t wait to come play shows for you again!!” – Benji Madden
The album has been propelled by the current breakout single ‘Life Can’t Get Much Better’ – with the song gaining swift momentum at radio.
‘Youth Authority’s Australian debut also marks the first time Good Charlotte have had a # 1 as independent artists, with the album released through the Madden Brothers own label MDDN (distributed worldwide by Kobalt Label Services).
Good Charlotte are currently touring the U.S as part of the Vans Warped Tour and will head to the U.K and Europe next month for headline shows and a spot on the 2016 Reading Festival.
