November 18, 2020 – Goo Goo Dolls have debuted a brand-new lyric video for their cover rendition of Tom Petty’s holiday classic “Christmas All Over Again“. Filled with an array of retro home video footage, the piece elicits nostalgic memories of the Christmas season. Watch it HERE.
This follows their recently released lyric video for ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’ which reminisces about Christmas in New York City, with picturesque winter scenes and yuletide decorations adorning the city – watch it HERE.
“Christmas All Over Again” & “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” are featured on the band’s first-ever festive album It’s Christmas All Over (Warner Records), available now via all digital streaming platforms HERE. The record is packed with iconic songs such as “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Let It Snow” and a brand-new original track “This Is Christmas.” All three songs currently rank in the top 40 at AC radio in the USA.
The band is also offering exclusive merch bundles including a red vinyl LP, a Goo Goo Dolls Crosley record player and additional limited-edition items that make for perfect gifts this season. For more information, please visit the band’s website HERE.
Last week the band’s classic hit ‘Iris‘ was given an airing by Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers – making good on a promise by Bridgers to cover the song if Trump was defeated. Although only on Bandcamp for 24 hours it sold over 28K downloads with all proceeds going to the Fair Fight organization. The track is no longer available to purchase or stream, but a snippet can be heard via Goo Goo Dolls’ Facebook page.
On December 12th, Goo Goo Dolls will perform the first-ever Augmented Reality Movie Musical “It’s Christmas All Over” in partnership with the live-streaming music platform FanTracks. Produced and directed by Barry Summers, the band will perform festive tracks from It’s Christmas All Over for the very first time. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
ABOUT GOO GOO DOLLS:
Formed in Buffalo, NY during 1986 by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac, Goo Goo Dolls quietly broke records, contributed a string of staples to the American songbook, connected to millions of fans, and indelibly impacted popular music for three-plus decades. Beyond selling 12 million records worldwide, the group garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations and seized a page in the history books by achieving 14 number one and Top 10 hits at Hot AC—“the most of any artist.“ As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” Among a string of hits, “Iris” clutched #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and would be named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years.“ Thus far, A Boy Named Goo (1995) went double-platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl went quadruple-platinum, and Gutterflower (2002) and Let Love In (2006) both went gold as Something for the Rest of Us (2010) and Magnetic (2013) bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Boxes attracted the praise of People and Huffington Post as Noisey, Consequence of Sound, and more featured them. Their music has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Leona Lewis. Among many accolades, John received the prestigious “Hal David Starlight Award” in 2008.
Following a sold-out 2018 twentieth anniversary tour in celebration of Dizzy Up The Girl, Goo Goo Dolls wrote and recorded their twelfth full-length album, Miracle Pill (Warner Records)—igniting a bold and bright new era in the process. On October 30th, the band will begin a new chapter with the release of their first-ever holiday record It’s Christmas All Over.
