The Skinny: Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band Goo Goo Dolls have today unveiled details of their upcoming new album Boxes, set for release May 6 via Warner Bros. Records. The first song from the album is “Over and Over” and can be streamed just below.

Boxes is a vibrant, sonically forward-looking album that manages to retain what their legions of fans love about the Goo Goo Dolls – indelible melodies, intimate, heartfelt lyrics, and the anthemic, uplifting vibe of their songs – while pushing new boundaries in terms of sound and production. Singer and guitarist John Rzeznik enlisted some of his favorite songwriters and producers to collaborate with, including Gregg Wattenberg (with whom Rzeznik wrote four songs on the Goos’ 2013 album Magnetic), Wattenberg’s production partner Derek Fuhrmann, and Drew Pearson (who has worked with Phillip Phillips and OneRepublic).

Goo Goo Dolls – which also features bassist Robby Takac – will hit the road for an extensive summer headlining tour of amphitheaters and arenas. Also on the bill as direct support are Collective Soul and Tribe Society. The tour kicks off in Portland, OR, on July 8th and crisscrosses North America through September 16th.
