After 12 million album sales and four Grammy nominations Goo Goo Dolls remain at the top of their game. That’s very much in evidence on their brand new instant grat track ‘Indestructible’ with accompanying lyric video taken from their forthcoming twelfth album ‘Miracle Pill’ (out September13th). The band will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, August 13th at 11:35pm EST / 10:35pm CST delivering their first late-night TV performance of lead track “Miracle Pill”, which is currently at #34 on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 chart and rising.
‘Indestructible’ is brimming with the insistent melodies and driving energy which are the hallmarks of Goo Goo Dolls’ finest work, and opens the album in anthemic style. John Rzeznik’s emotive lyrics offer a reminder that there’s hope in the most challenging of circumstances. It’s a theme that’s prevalent throughout the album.
“Things may look dark or dire, but there’s a chance to make a connection, nevertheless,” says John. “I’m writing from as honest of a place as I can at this time in my life. That’s something I want everyone to understand about the album. A lot of our fans have grown up with us. I think they’ll be able to relate to where we’re at in our lives, because they tend to be at the same place. We’ve still got a lot to say.”
Rzeznik and bandmate Robby Takac recorded ‘Indestructible’ at Gold Diggers Studio in Hollywood with producer Sam Hollander (Panic! At The Disco, Weezer) and Grant Michaels (Sia, Serena Gomez)
Drawing on over three decades together, Rzeznik and Takac supply a real sense of hope and a whole lot of heart on the new album. After a 20thanniversary tour in support of their smash hit album ‘Dizzy Up The Girl’, the pair immediately hit the studio late in 2018. Always aiming to stay fresh and moving forward, the result is a collection of songs which delivers musicianship that is as engaging as ever, with lyrics that reflect the current landscape of instant gratification and relief that everyone seems to be seeking.
Pre-orders for the album are available HERE, and each pre-order purchase unlocks “Indestructible” as an instant grat track along with the previously released songs “Money, Fame and Fortune” and “Miracle Pill”.
