Goo Goo Dolls – featuring singer/guitarist John Rzeznik and bassist/singer Robby Takac – have been on the road constantly since the release of their 11th studio album ‘Boxes’, which includes the hit “So Alive,”, and was lauded by the likes of People, Huffington Post, Metro who called the album a “step forward in the band’s extensive repertoire” and Classic Rock who judged it an “expertly judged slice of plaintive pop music”. The bands’ most recent release is the You Should Be Happy EP which includes the tracks ‘Use Me’ and the Alex Aldi mix of ‘Boxes’. Recorded at East West studios in LA it was produced by Drew Pearson (OneRepublic, Katy Perry).
The multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated 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 No. 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), and recorded and released eleven studio albums. Rzeznik has also been honoured with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.
