Set for release on August 12th is Chaos In Bloom — Goo Goo Dolls' 13th album. The group has already dropped the set's lead single, "Yeah, I Like You," and kicks off a major 44-city tour on July 15th at Nampa, Idaho's Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater. Co-founders John Rzeznik and Robby Takac will be on the road through September 24th when they wrap the trek with a hometown show in Buffalo, New York at Keybank Center.
John Rzeznik spoke about the band's new single "Yeah, I Like You" in a statement, explaining, "In a world that is just drowning in social media and internet stars, many of whom are certainly talented, but many confirm that in 2022 you can be famous for doing nothing. Celebrity in this age has a very quick burn. It was hard not to be consumed by it during the pandemic."
Rzeznik, who caught Covid twice, told us the pandemic only made him more diligent in writing the songs for the new Chaos In Bloom album: ["For me, it's like, the pandemic was 'you better do something.' I felt like everything I had worked for my whole life was just (snaps fingers) like, in the blink of an eye, it could just be taken away. So, it sort of, added a sense of urgency: 'Hey man, you better sit down with your guitar and a pencil and some paper and really start working – and work hard' — because nobody knew what was gonna happen. I mean, we cancelled two tours."]
