Goo Goo Dolls Video Exclusive

The year 2010 marks the 24th year since The Goo Goo Dolls’ founding members John Rzeznik and Robby Takac first starting playing music together.
Joined for the past 15 years by drummer Mike Malinin, the band will be touring in support of their ninth studio album, Something For The Rest Of Us, which is due in the shops on August 31.
Written and recorded over the past couple of years, the album delivers another dose of great Goo 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.”
The recording of the album took place in various studios in Los Angeles as well as the band’s studio in their hometown of Buffalo, New York, and during the course of events they worked with a wide range of engineers and producers including Tim Palmer, John Fields, and Butch Vig.
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.
The band release their first single from Something For The Rest Of Us on August 23. The song is called Home and you can watch an exclusive Classic Rock video preview here.
