‘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 as collaborators, 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 includes bassist Robby Takac — will hit the road for an extensive U.S. summer headlining tour of amphitheaters and arenas – European dates are still to be announced.
