Goo Goo Dolls Feel Good and Sound Even Better

After more than two decades as a band, nine albums and countless concerts for millions of fans, the Goo Goo Dolls are back with their most fun, upbeat album to date. Magnetic chronicles a particularly good time for band members John, Robby and Mike.
Since 2010's Something For The Rest Of Us, the trio has celebrated engagements, births and their iconic hit Iris, taking the number one spot on Billboard's Top 100 of 1992-2012. The group channeled this joy during their last tour and the outcome was a shiny, upbeat production. This is most evident on Rebel Beat, the lead single off the new album.
And while a bit of a departure from the Doll's biggest hits of the 1990s, the quality in Rzeznik's songwriting remains the same.
This summer fans are getting more bang for their buck when the Goo Goo Dolls hit the road with fellow '90s rockers Matchbox Twenty. The tour kicks off June 25 in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Should be a feel-good time!
