Goo Goo Dolls have released the official single “So Alive” from their forthcoming album Boxes, due out May 6 via Warner Bros. Records. Premiering today via People Magazine who say, “A sunny, poppy departure from the alt-rockers’ oft-moody canon, “So Alive” builds over a breezy piano melody and upbeat drum line,” the single is available as an instant grat when you preorder Boxes on iTunes here.
Watch/Share “So Alive:”
Boxes 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. The official single “So Alive” is the second song that the Goo Goo Dolls have shared from their new album – late last month they unveiled album opener “Over and Over.”
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).
Goo Goo Dolls – which also features bassist Robby Takac – will hit the road for an extensive summer headlining tour of amphitheaters and arenas. Also on the bill as direct support areCollective Soul and Tribe Society. The tour kicks off in Portland, OR, on July 8th and crisscrosses North America through September 16th. Please see below for all dates. VIP ticket packages are available at googoodolls.com/tour.
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 ten studio albums, with Boxes to be their 11th. Rzeznik has also been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.
