Cardiology, Good Charlotte’s fifth studio album and first for Capitol Records, Cardiology, is available today. The band stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to celebrate the release and perform their single “Like It’s Her Birthday.”

Tonight Benji and Joel Madden will guest on “Chelsea Lately” on E!  They will also appear on “Lopez Tonight” on TBS this Friday, November 5th, and on FUEL TV’s “The Daily Habit” on November 15th. As part of the new “Plugged In” concert series, Good Charlotte will play a free show on Thursday, November 4th, at Universal CityWalk Hollywood in Universal City, CA.

“Good Charlotte are multiplatinum scene superstars, but Cardiology might just be their best effort yet,” said Alternative Press, which awarded the album four out of five stars. Cardiology, produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne), is the follow-up to 2007’s Good Morning Revival, which debuted in the Top 10 in 13 countries, including the United States.

Cardiology comes almost exactly a decade after the release of Good Charlotte’s self-titled debut album. The band – vocalist Joel Madden, guitarist Benji Madden, guitarist Billy Martin, bassist Paul Thomas and drummer Dean Butterworth – has sold 10 million records, scored numerous mainstream radio hits (including “The Anthem,” “Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous,” “Hold On” and “Girls and Boys”) and toured extensively. Good Charlotte has appeared on the covers of Rolling Stone and Alternative Press, won an MTV Video Music Award and performed on such shows as “Saturday Night Live,” “TODAY,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Benji and Joel Madden recently appeared on the cover of Kerrang and Dean Butterworth is the subject of a cover story in the November issue of DRUM!

Good Charlotte’s fifth studio album, Cardiology, featuring the hit single “Like It’s Her Birthday” is now available in-stores and online at iTunes.

I’d like you to meet a new person I am going to be working with! His name is Freddy Wexler and he’s done an amazing tribute to the Jackson 5’s “I’ll Be There”! He already has more than 70 thousand hits on You Tube and number 1 in various countries across the world. He also has an uncanny resemblance to “Entourage” actor, Adrian Grenier!


Multi-platinum-selling and Grammy-winning global superstar, Nelly Furtado and Geffen Records are proud to announce the premiere of her new video for “Night Is Young,” the first single off of the upcoming The Best Of Nelly Furtado greatest hits package due in stores on November 16th. The Alan Ferguson directed video can be viewed on Vevo.

“Night Is Young,” is co-produced by Salaam Remi (Nas, The Fugees, Amy Winehouse) and Staybent Krunk-A-Delic, and co-written byNelly Furtado. The Best Of Nelly Furtado celebrates Nelly’s first 10 years of recordings and features #1 Pop smashes and collaborations along with three previously unreleased recordings and will be available in standard and double-disc deluxe editions.

The Best Of Nelly Furtado looks back at a simply sensational and genuinely global first decade for the acclaimed Canadian-born singer-songwriter of Portuguese heritage.  She has won and/or been nominated for seven Grammy awards, has a BRIT Award win, and has been awarded numerous Junos (Canada’s equivalent of the Grammy), including “Album Of The Year” for Loose as well as an MTV Europe Music Award.  Furthermore, she has been nominated for a handful of Billboard Latin Music Awards and a Grammy for her groundbreaking 2009 album Mi Plan that further solidifies her vibrant and successful career as a dual language superstar.  Embracing different cultures, musical styles and even languages, Nelly Furtado has helped define musical diversity for a new generation.

Nelly’s eclectic 2000 double platinum debut Whoa, Nelly! that spawned the mega-hit “I’m Like A Bird” was followed by the gold 2003Folklore, whose “Forca” became the official anthem of the 2004 European Cup Football Championship.  2006’s double platinum, #1-debutingLoose spotlighted the platinum, Grammy-nominated “Promiscuous” along with the hits “Say It Right” and “Maneater.”  Loose has been certified platinum in 32 countries and sold nearly 10 million copies worldwide and won the 2007 Brit Award for International Female Solo Artist. In 2009, Mi Plan, her first album entirely in Spanish, made history when the single “Manos al Aire” soared to #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Latin Songs” chart, making it the highest debut of 2009 for Latin Pop album and the first time a North American artist had reached the top spot with a song originally written in Spanish. The album went on to be a #1 hit on Billboard’s “Top Latin Album” chart, as well as iTunes and Amazon Latin music charts.  In 2010, Nelly joined producer Bob Ezrin and Young Artists For Haiti in singing K’NAAN’s “Wavin’ Flag” where all proceeds go to Free The Children, War Child Canada and World Vision Canada.
