The band’s brand new record is due for release later this year. 

Multi-platinum, four-time GRAMMY-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls have unveiled their new single Miracle Pill via Warner Records. The track will be featured on the band’s brand new album of the same name set to be released this fall. Underscored by a memorable piano riff, sweeping guitars, and a swaggering rhythm, the track sees lead singer John Rzeznik cleverly skewer the instant gratification generation with a catchy chorus and a message that goes down easier than anything from the pharmacy.

“As soon as we finished Miracle Pill, it was the obvious title of the album for many reasons,” Rzeznik said. “Miracle Pill is a metaphor for instant gratification or relief. If you’re feeling sad, you take a pill. If you need approval, you go on Instagram and receive it immediately. It speaks to the second decade of 21st century angst. We’re inundated by bullshit, garbage, and false solutions to every problem we have. The real path is to work hard, be nice, and keep going. However, this route gets overlooked, because we’re all looking for the ultimate shortcut and escape.”

Earlier this month, Goo Goo Dolls kicked off a co-headlining amphitheater tour alongside GRAMMY-winning band Train, which has garnered rave reviews right out of the gate.

The run will make numerous stops at outdoor venues across North America this summer before concluding on 17 August 2019 in Mansfield, MA at Xfinity Center. Goo Goo Dolls will then embark on several South American tour dates, including a highly anticipated appearance at the iconic music festival Rock in Rio on 29 September 2019 in Rio de Janeiro.
