Multiplatinum, Grammy-nominated Goo Goo Dolls announce the release of their new, five-song EP, “You Should Be Happy,” via Warner Bros. Records. The EP was recorded at EastWest studios in LA and produced by Drew Pearson (OneRepublic, Katy Perry), who first collaborated with the band on their previous release, “Boxes.”
The first single, “Use Me,” was written by John Rzeznik and Pearson.
The EP is available at all digital retailers HERE, and will also be released on CD June 9.
As announced last month, the band will hit the road this summer for the “Long Way Home” tour with special guest Phillip Phillips. The tour kicks off July 14 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain, California, and will run through mid-September, culminating at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sept. 13. Tickets and more information are available at googoodolls.com/tour and livenation.com.
