On Monday, multi-Platinum, four-time Grammy-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls announced the release of a first holiday record. “It’s Christmas All Over” will bow Oct. 30 via Warner Records.

A press release said, Comprised of cover renditions of classic fan-favorites as well as two new originals all in the spirit of Christmas, the album promises to deliver a much-needed warmth and hope to 2020. Produced by frontman John Rzeznik alongside the band’s longtime collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman, the record was created during lockdown this year. Pre-save the release now and stay tuned for more information this fall.”

“It’s Christmas All Over” comes on the heels of the deluxe edition release of the band’s acclaimed 12th studio record, “Miracle Pill,” a special release boasting the trio of never-before-heard tracks “Just A Man,” “The Right Track” and “Tonight, Together.” Available now on all digital streaming platforms, the record also features the title hit “Miracle Pill, the haunting slow-burn “Autumn Leaves,” and the band’s latest single “Fearless.”

Earlier this month, Goo Goo Dolls debuted a live version of “Fearless” from their sold-out show at the Kalamazoo State Theatre on their fall 2019 “Miracle Pill Tour.” Listen to it now HERE.

Initially released in September 2019, “Miracle Pill” remains as engaging and timely as ever. Upon its release, the record was described as “potentially the biggest Dolls album released to date” by Planet Rock,” as well as one that “easily stands alongside the best of their career,” according to PopMatters.

The press release noted, “With over 30 years together as a group, over 12 million albums sold, and 14 No. 1 and Top 10 hits at Hot AC, ‘Miracle Pill’ finds Goo Goo Dolls at the top of their game and in a league of their own among rock bands.”

Goo Goo Dolls are currently in the studio working on another album of new material and will also be hitting the road for an expansive North American tour in summer of 2021. Kicking off on July 22 in Boise, Idaho, at Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater, the nationwide tour will visit numerous amphitheaters throughout the U.S. and Canada, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Ticket information can be found at the band’s website HERE.

In addition, fans can sign up to receive more information via the band’s new site at www.googoodolls.com/christmas.

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 – the most of any artist. 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; “A Boy Named Goo” went double-Platinum and “Dizzy Up The Girl” went quadruple-platinum.
