New album 'Boxes,' due May 6 via Warner Bros. Records, available for preorder now
Multiplatinum band kicks off summer headlining tour July 8
Goo Goo Dolls have released the official single "So Alive" from their forthcoming album "Boxes," due out May 6 via Warner Bros. Records. Premiering today via People Magazine, which says, "A sunny, poppy departure from the alt-rockers' oft-moody canon, 'So Alive' builds over a breezy piano melody and upbeat drum line," the single is available as an instant grat when preordering "Boxes" on iTunes HERE.
"Boxes" is a vibrant, sonically forward-looking album that manages to retain what legions of fans love about the Goo Goo Dolls - indelible melodies; intimate, heartfelt lyrics; and the anthemic, uplifting vibe of their songs - while pushing new boundaries in terms of sound and production.
"So Alive" is the second song the Goo Goo Dolls have shared from the new album. Late last month they unveiled album opener "Over and Over."
Singer and guitarist John Rzeznik enlisted some of his favorite songwriters and producers to collaborate with, including Gregg Wattenberg (with whom Rzeznik wrote four songs on the Goos' 2013 album "Magnetic"), Wattenberg's production partner Derek Fuhrmann, and Drew Pearson (who has worked with Phillip Phillips and OneRepublic).
Goo Goo Dolls - which also features bassist Robby Takac - will hit the road for an extensive summer headlining tour of amphitheaters and arenas. Also on the bill as direct support are Collective Soul and Tribe Society. VIP ticket packages are available at googoodolls.com/tour.
