Set will be released July 10th via Warner Records
Multi-platinum, four-time GRAMMY-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls have announced they will release the deluxe edition of their acclaimed 12th studio record Miracle Pill on July 10th via Warner Records. In addition to the smash title song “Miracle Pill” and the band’s latest single “Fearless,” the special album will deliver three never-before-heard tracks including “Just A Man,” a powerful and lush new song that was written and recorded in London with producers Martin Slattery and Antony Genn (The Hours).
“We recorded ‘Just A Man’ in London this past February right before we headed out on our UK tour,” states John Rzeznik. “It was really cool getting the chance to collaborate with Antony & Martin on it, and the song now feels more meaningful than ever in light of the past few months. It’s about the anxiety of existing as a human being in the 21st century and how we fight to overcome the ever-mounting struggles of being flawed in our nature and powerless in certain situations. It’s a call to stand up to the bullies in our own minds and the voices that keep us in the grip of fear. Fear and love, however, cannot exist in the same space. We need more compassion, more empathy, and certainly more love right now – not only for ourselves, but more importantly for others. We’re so excited to share ‘Just A Man’ with you and we hope you enjoy it.”
The band will be embarking on a 2021 North American summer tour to perform songs from the record, as well as other hits from across their iconic catalogue. Tickets are available now and a full list of dates can be found at the band’s website.
Initially released in September 2019, Miracle Pill remains as engaging and timely as ever. The album was described as “potentially the biggest Dolls album released to date [Planet Rock]”, as well as one that “easily stands alongside the best of their career [PopMatters].” The record features numerous other instant-classics such as the stirring slow-burn “Autumn Leaves”. With over 30 years together as a group, over 12 million albums sold, and 14 number one and Top 10 hits at Hot AC, Miracle Pill finds Goo Goo Dolls at the top of their game and in a league of their own among rock bands.
Yesterday, Goo Goo Dolls capped off their “Live From Home” series, a collection of six intimate live performance videos recorded and filmed remotely. Featuring stripped down renditions of hits spanning the band’s storied career such as “So Alive,” “Miracle Pill,” “Slide,” “Life’s a Message,” “Indestructible,” and “Name,” the series aired on the band’s Youtube channel throughout the month of June.
Earlier this month, the band debuted a brand new live video for their uplifting current single “Fearless.” The performance was filmed at the historic Kalamazoo State Theatre in Kalamazoo, MI during the band’s fall 2019 headlining tour in support of Miracle Pill. Recently, the band also released a live performance of “Fearless” in association with Global Citizen for their “Together At Home” Series in an effort to spread awareness and raise funds for the World Health Organization to help end the coronavirus.
