Goo Goo Dolls have launched a new remix of “Save Me From Myself” by NYC producer and remixer Alex Aldi. It’s an inspirational anthem, featuring guest vocals from Genevieve Schatz that finds the band at their most reflective with frontman John Rzeznik’s knack for sardonic, thoughtful, lyrical phrases holding a mirror up to our shared experiences. Watch the lyric video HERE or listen HERE.
The track is taken from ‘Chaos In Bloom’, the first album of their career to be produced by Rzeznik which shows a band continuing to evolve. Consisting of 10 tracks including the singles Yeah, I Like You” and “You Are The Answer”, ‘Chaos In Bloom’ is an album of biting sarcasm, stadium-ready choruses and the kind of spear-sharp song writing that’s led them to becoming one of the most influential alternative rock groups.
The band recently announced a UK tour which will see them playing songs from Chaos in Bloom alongside other songs from their vast back catalogue including the indelible hit “Iris,” which eclipsed 1 billion streams on Spotify last year. On this, their first visit to the UK since February 2020, the tour kicks off in Dublin on June 13th 2023 and includes a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on June 24th. The band has also just confirmed Those Damn Crows as support on the tour.
