Goo Goo Dolls (l-r): Robby Takac & John Rzeznik

Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band Goo Goo Dolls will release their 11th album, Boxes, on May 6th via Warner Bros. Records. Then about a month later the group hits the road on a headlining North American tour of amphitheaters and arenas. Also on the bill as direct support are Collective Soul and Tribe Society. The tour kicks off in Portland, OR on July 8th and runs through September 16th.

The first song from the album is “Over and Over,” available now as an instant bonus when you preorder Boxes on iTunes. The new LP is a vibrant, sonically forward-looking album that manages to retain what their 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. 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).

The Goo Goo Dolls are one of the most globally respected and influential forces in popular music, selling more than 12 million albums since 1986. They have scored 14 Top 10 radio hits (more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC format), including “Name,” “Slide” and “Iris,” the latter spending nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and holding the #1 position for 17 consecutive weeks. The band has toured the globe countless times, performed in front of millions of fans, received numerous awards (including four Grammy nominations), Rzeznik has also been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.
