New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Capitol Records) - In their first national tour in more than three years, GOOD CHARLOTTE return this April for all-ages arena showsaround the country. Joining the boys on all dates will be Australia's-own SHORT STACK and Boston's BOYS LIKE GIRLS.
This week 'Cardiology', Good Charlotte's fifth studio album and their first through EMI/Capitol, debuted at No 3 in the ARIA Album Chart. The album features the Top 10 single 'Like It's Her Birthday' - now gold and still residing in the Top 25 - and the follow-up currently bouncing around the airwaves, 'Sex On The Radio'.
With more than half-a-million album sales locally, the band have surpassed sales of 10 million worldwide.
The heavily tattooed and highly melodic Madden twins - vocalist Joel and guitarist Benji - and their band mates, guitarist Billy Martin, bassist Paul Thomas and drummer Dean Butterworth - last ripped it up in Australia in October 2007, blowing away audiences with the typically brash, bold and energetic live performances for which they've become renowned around the world.
Special guests at all shows will be NSW Central Coast lads SHORT STACK.
This Friday Short Stack deliver 'This Is Bat Country', the high-anticipated follow-up to their debut album and ARIA No 1 'Stack Is The New Black'. 'This Is Bat Country' is home to the recent ARIA No 4 hit 'Planets' and the soon to be released 'We Dance To A Different Disco Honey'.
Short Stack - Shaun Diviney (vocals/guitar), Andy Clemmensen (bass) and Bradie Webb (drums) - continue to build an army of dedicated fans through their relentless touring, headlining their own sold-out national tours and supporting some of the biggest international acts touring our shores!
Getting the night started will be BOYS LIKE GIRLS. Since the release of their gold self-titled debut album, these four guys have been riding a wave of mainstream success, from their Top 40 hit 'The Great Escape' through to sold-out shows the world over, and following up with album number two 'Love Drunk'.
