GOO GOO DOLLS TO RELEASE BRAND-NEW STUDIO ALBUM, SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US, ON AUGUST 31st 2010
BELOVED ROCK TRIO’S NINTH STUDIO ALBUM WILL FEATURE
CURRENT SINGLE “HOME”AVAILABLE ON THE ITUNES STORE BEGINNING JUNE 8th

ADDITIONAL TOUR DATES CONFIRMED


Burbank, CA – One of rock’s most beloved and enduring bands, Goo Goo Dolls, have announced that they will release their ninth studio album, SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US, on August 31st, 2010. The album features the band’s new single, “Home”, which is already being embraced at radio. In advance of the album’s release, “Home” will become available on the iTunes Store and all other digital retailers starting on June 8th.

The album was produced by Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, David Bowie) with additional production by Butch Vig (Green Day, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, etc.) John Fields (Paul Westerberg, Jimmy Eat World) and the Goo Goo Dolls.

The result showcases more of the well-crafted songs and timeless lyrics that have been such an integral part of the Goo Goo Dolls’ continuing success. Written and recorded over the past couple of years, SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US delivers another dose of emotionally-charged, well-crafted rock songs such as “Sweetest Lie,” “One Night,” and “Soldier.” With his songwriting, Rzeznik confronts some of the issues that have become part of many people’s everyday lives:.

“I wanted some of the material on this album to address the disillusionment of the difficult period we live in; I wanted to give a voice to the emotional uncertainty that accompanies hard times. “So many people are struggling to keep it together through tough economic conditions and two wars that seem to have no end in sight. The ones who bear the brunt of these burdens are everyday people. That’s who I want to speak to.”

SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US is the follow up to 2006’s Let Love In, which marked the Goo Goo Dolls’ 20th anniversary as a band. The album spawned several Top 10 singles, including “Better Days,” “Stay With You,” and the title track, which gave them their record-breaking twelfth Top 10 hit. Their thirteenth, “Before It’s Too Late,” appeared on the blockbuster Transformers soundtrack. Goo Goo Dolls have racked up four Grammy nominations and sold more than 10 million albums. Rzeznik has also been the recipient of the Hal David Starlight Songwriter Award.

The track-listing for SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US is as follows:

“Sweetest Lie”
“As I Am”
“Home”
“Notbroken”
“One Night”
“Nothing Is Real”
“Now I Hear”
“Still Your Song”
“Something For The Rest Of Us”
