Tue, 20 Jul 2010 12:17:14
Goo Goo Dolls have released an exclusive tour-only EP, entitled Waiting For the Rest of It, which is being sold at all tour stops and will be released by all digital service providers on July 20. So if you miss the band while on the road, you can purchase the EP via your favorite digital platform today. The EP is essentially a teaser for the band's upcoming ninth album, since it includes four songs from that album, Something For the Rest of Us, which will be released by Warner Bros. Records on August 31. The songs that are on the album are as follows: "Home," "Sweetest Lie," "Now I Hear" and "Still Your Song." The EP also includes a live version of their hit, "Broadway."
Something For the Rest of Us will also be sold as a deluxe book edition exclusively at www.googoodolls.com. Pre-sale orders begin on July 22. This limited-edition book version features exclusive photos of the band, a digital download of "Home" upon purchase, and a limited-edition lithograph, some of which have been personally signed by each member of the band. Essentially, the deluxe edition is something for the best of us, as in the most dedicated fans of the band.
Those who purchase this release will also receive classic covers of Flesh for Lulu's "Postcards From Paradise" and Pete Townshend's "Rough Boys," plus an exclusive cover of the Kinks' classic "Catch Me Now I'm Falling," available only on this collection. These tracks will be delivered digitally on or before the album's August 31 in-store date.
