Goo Goo Dolls - Something For The Rest Of Us

Buffalo boys The Goo Goo Dolls, are in the final stages of releasing their upcoming ninth studio album "SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US". It is being produced by Rob Cavallo, who produced previous Goo Goo offerings such as "DIZZY UP THE GIRL" and "GUTTERFLOWER". In an interview with Star News Online, lead singer Johnny Rzeznik revealed that the themes of the album would revolve around current events and issues.

"Most of the material on the record seems to be addressing the kind of the angst and uncertainty of the times that we're living in, but on an emotional level. One particular song on the album is called “Not Broken.” I got a letter from a woman whose husband was in Iraq. He was injured – paralyzed – and he doesn't want to come home. He wants to stay in the hospital. He's ashamed of himself. He feels like he's less. And she just wants to let him know that he's still everything that she ever wanted. I don't know, it just kind of came out. It's kind of like I was writing a love letter to him on her behalf. These are really hard, trying times. And the way that affects people and their families, people losing their jobs and everything's so insecure, I just wanted to say something about that." - Johnny Rzeznik

The first single "Home" was released about a month ago, and I've just discovered the video clip for the song on the GooGoo's youtube account, directed by Devin Sarno.

The album's release date has been pushed back several times, but it will finally be released August 31st 2010. Be on the look out for this one wackos.
