Although there are still 122 days before Christmas, the Goo Goo Dolls have announced that their first-ever holiday album will arrive on Oct. 30 via Warner Records.
“It’s Christmas All Over” will feature various covers of Christmas classics as well as two new original songs, the titles of which have not been revealed yet.
While the official tracklist will be announced in the coming months, frontman John Rzeznik and his bandmates teased that “the album promises to deliver a much-needed warmth and hope to 2020.”
The collection of Yuletide tunes was produced by Rzeznik and his longtime collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jim McGorman during these past few months of lockdown.
Aside from coming for Mariah Carey’s crown with their first-ever Christmas-themed album, Rzeznik is scheduled to perform during the virtual edition of this year’s Chartway American Music Festival.
The music festival will be broadcasted on Saturday, Sept. 5 from 9:00 to 10:30 p.m. EDT on the official YouTube channel of Visit Virginia Beach.
Also participating in this year’s edition of the Chartway American Music Festival are Bret Michaels, Marc Roberge of O.A.R., Michael Franti, Moon Taxi and Trevor Young of SOJA, all of whom have performed during previous editions of the festival.
Meanwhile, the Goo Goo Dolls have announced plans to hit the road across North America in a 2021 summer tour, which will kick off on July 22 in Boise, Idaho.
The band was initially scheduled to support their most recent and 12th studio album, “Miracle Pill”, alongside Lifehouse and Forest Blakk on an extensive summer tour, although the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to their 2020 touring plans.
