It’s Christmas All Over hits stores Oct 30th
Multi-platinum, four-time GRAMMY-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls are celebrating Christmas early this year with the release of their first-ever holiday record It’s Christmas All Over. Arriving October 30th, via Warner Records, the album is filled with cover renditions of iconic holiday songs such as “Let It Snow” and “Hark The Herald Angels Sing”, as well as two new originals that capture the warmth and nostalgia of classic Christmas favorites.
Produced by frontman John Rzeznik in addition to the band’s longtime collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman, the record was recorded during lockdown this year. On October 2nd, the band will debut “This Is Christmas,” the first official single from It’s Christmas All Over.
It’s Christmas All Over comes on the heels of the deluxe edition release of the band’s acclaimed 12th studio record Miracle Pill, a special release boasting the trio of never-before-heard tracks “Just A Man”, “The Right Track” and “Tonight, Together”. Available now on all digital streaming platforms, the record also features the smash title hit “Miracle Pill”, the haunting slow-burn “Autumn Leaves” and the band’s latest single “Fearless.” Earlier this month, Goo Goo Dolls debuted a live version of “Fearless” from their sold out show at the Kalamazoo State Theatre on their fall 2019 Miracle Pill Tour.
Initially released in September 2019, Miracle Pill remains as engaging and timely as ever. Upon its release, the record 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].” With over 30 years together as a group, over 12 million albums sold, and 14 No. 1 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.
Goo Goo Dolls are currently in the studio working on another album of new material and will also be hitting the road for an expansive North American tour in summer of 2021. Kicking off on July 22, 2021 in Boise, ID at Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater, the nationwide tour will visit numerous amphitheaters throughout the US and Canada such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
