The band has also released a vibrant new live concert video for "Autumn Leaves,” a standout track from “Miracle Pill” that has been garnering rave reactions from audiences. The performance was filmed at the Kalamazoo State Theater in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on the band’s fall 2019 headlining tour. It can be viewed here.

“Miracle Pill” officially arrived in September 2019. The album was described as "potentially the biggest Dolls album released to date” (Planet Rock), as well as one that "easily stands alongside the best of their career” PopMatters). In addition to "Autumn Leaves," the album also features the smash single "Miracle Pill" and the pop anthem "Fearless," which was added to the LA Dodgers in-stadium playlist last season.

Formed in Buffalo during 1986 by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac, Goo Goo Dolls quietly broke records, contributed a string of staples to the American songbook, connected to millions of fans, and indelibly impacted popular music for three-plus decades.

Beyond selling 12 million records worldwide, the group garnered four Grammy Award nominations and seized a page in the history books by achieving 14 No. 1 and Top 10 hits at Hot AC. As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for most top 10 singles.

Among a string of hits, "Iris" clutched No. 1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and would be named "#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years." Thus far,” A Boy Named Goo” (1995) sits at double-Platinum, “Dizzy Up The Girl” quadruple-Platinum, and “Gutterflower” (2002) and “Let Love In) (2006) Gold. “Something for the Rest of Us” (2010) and “Magnetic” (2013) bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200.

Everyone from Taylor Swift to Leona Lewis has covered the band’s music. Among many accolades, Rzeznik received the prestigious "Hal David Starlight Award" in 2008.
