Band Add Extra Dates To Their Current North American Tour.

August 16th, 2022 Following the release of their 13th studio album Chaos in Bloom via Warner Records this week, Goo Dolls have reached a new milestone in their nearly four-decade career.  Today, their indelible smash hit “Iris” has officially eclipsed 1 billion streams on Spotify. The song, which recently achieved seven-times platinum status and has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Phoebe Bridgers, Maggie Rogers, Snail Mail, and more in recent years, has been an unwavering staple not only in alt-rock music, but pop culture as a whole since its release in 1998. Originally featured on the band’s sixth record Dizzy Up The Girl, “Iris” stayed at #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and was later named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years,” serving as a testament to the timelessness of Goo Goo Dolls’ illustrious catalogue.

With over 35 years together as a band, Goo Goo Dolls’ new record Chaos in Bloom finds the band continuing to evolve just as they have throughout their entire career. Consisting of 10 tracks including the standouts “Yeah, I Like You,” “You Are The Answer” and Going Crazy,” Chaos in Bloom is an album of biting sarcasm, stadium-ready choruses, and the type of spear-sharp songwriting that’s led them to becoming one of the most influential alternative rock outfits of all time. Listen to the album now here and visit here for the exclusive Chaos in Bloom merch collection.

This week Spotify dedicated their coveted Times Square billboard in New York City to Goo Goo Dolls and the arrival of Chaos in Bloom.

The band has also announced the second leg of their nationwide Chaos in Bloom touradding to their sprawling headlining dates this summer in which they’re playing at iconic outdoor venues including Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, and Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY.

Formed by Rzeznik and Takac in Buffalo, NY in 1986, Goo Goo Dolls have quietly broken 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 15 million records worldwide, the group has garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations and nearly a dozen platinum & gold singles combined and seized a page in the history books by achieving 16 number one and Top 10 hits. As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” 

Thus far, A Boy Named Goo (1995) is double-platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl is five times 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. Their music continues to reach new audiences around the world and rack up platinum & gold statuses – including the recently platinum-certified “Slide”, “Black Balloon” and “Better Days” – and has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers.

Among a string of hits, “Iris” was #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and was named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years.” After going viral on TikTok, the track recently achieved seven-times-platinum status and re-entered the Billboard charts, yet again proving the timelessness of Goo Goo Dolls’ illustrious catalogue.
