Goo Goo Dolls To Release Brand-New Studio Album, Something For The Rest Of Us, On August 31st 2010

Beloved Rock Trioâs Ninth Studio Album Will Feature Current Single âHomeâAvailable On The ITunes Store Now

One of rockâs most beloved and enduring bands, Goo Goo Dolls, have announced that they will release their ninth studio album, Something For The Rest of Us, on August 31, 2010. The album features the bandâs new single, âHomeâ, which is now available on the iTunes store and all other digital retailers.

The album was produced by Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, David Bowie) with additional production by Butch Vig (Green Day, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, etc.) John Fields (Paul Westerberg, Jimmy Eat World) and Goo Goo Dolls.

The result showcases more of the well-crafted songs and timeless lyrics that have been such an integral part of the Goo Goo Dollsâ continuing success. Written and recorded over the past couple of years, Something For The Rest of Us delivers another dose of emotionally charged, well-crafted rock songs such as âSweetest Lie,â âOne Night,â and âSoldier.â with his songwriting, Rzeznik confronts some of the issues that have become part of many peopleâs everyday lives:.

âI wanted some of the material on this album to address the disillusionment of the difficult period we live in; I wanted to give a voice to the emotional uncertainty that accompanies hard times. âSo many people are struggling to keep it together through tough economic conditions and two wars that seem to have no end in sight. The ones who bear the brunt of these burdens are everyday people. Thatâs who I want to speak to.â

Something For The Rest of Us, is the follow up to 2006âs Let Love In, which marked the Goo Goo Dollsâ 20th anniversary as a band. The album spawned several hit singles including âBetter Days,â âStay With You,â âSomething For The Rest of Usâ and âBefore itâs Too Late,â the latter appearing on the blockbuster Transformers Soundtrack. Goo Goo Dolls have racked up four Grammy nominations and sold more than 10 million albums. Rzeznik has also been the recipient of the Hal David Starlight songwriter award.

The track-listing for Something For The Rest of Us is as follows:

âSweetest Lieâ
âAs I Amâ
âOne Nightâ
âNothing Is Realâ
âNow I Hearâ

âStill Your Songâ
âSomething For The Rest Of Usâ
