Having wrapped a three-month summer tour in support of their current album Something for the Rest of Us, The Goo Goo Dolls have announced that they will continue touring through the fall, launching a new string of dates on Oct. 12 in Milwaukee. Tickets go on-sale this week, so snatch 'em up.
In other Goos news, the band's blockbuster single "Iris" has soared to No. 1 on the UK iTunes chart after being performed by two finalists on the British edition of The X Factor. See what reality TV does for artists? A lot!
"I love the fact that young artists are inspired to sing this song. It opened a lot of doors for us," said singer Johnny Rzeznik. "To see it hit No. 1 in the UK and connect with a growing new audience is cool."
Finally, the band, which is the aforementioned Rzeznik, bassist Robby Takac, and drummer Mike Malinin, has just recorded a brand-new song, entitled "The Best of Me," which will be heard on an upcoming episode of CBS's hit remake of Hawaii Five-O, as well as on a soon-to-be released soundtrack album.
