Just ahead of their highly anticipated nationwide headlining summer tour, multi-platinum and 4x Grammy-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls have just released their brand new single, “Run All Night.” It is the first original song released from the band since their 2022 album, Chaos In Bloom.
“Run All Night” opens with a somber piano line that slowly builds up into a full-fledged uplifting and foot-stomping ballad. “I killed my father’s name before it killed me,” reflects frontman John Rzeznik on the song as he traces the map of his life and destinations still to be experienced.
“‘Run All Night’ is about escaping from your circumstances, and finding hope in the wild unknown of the night,” adds Rzeznik about the song.
Goo Goo Dolls will be kicking off their “Big Night Out Tour” on July 24th, with special support coming from O.A.R. The two groups recently teamed up for a cover of Tom Petty’s iconic “I Won’t Back Down,” and on Thursday, July 13th Goo Goo Dolls and O.A.R.’s Marc Roberge will perform the song live on Good Morning America. Following the performance, Goo Goo Dolls will perform “Run All Night” live on television for the fist time on GMA3 that same day.
After O.A.R. wraps up supporting through the entire first leg, Fitz and the Tantrums will join as support for the second leg to take place this September. Traversing through major outdoor venues coast-to-coast, the North American run will see Goo Goo Dolls delivering career-encompassing sets that feature songs from their new album Chaos in Bloom along with other hits from their complete discography including the indelible hit “Iris,” which eclipsed 1 billion streams on Spotify last year.
The band will be partnering with Joe Torre Safe At Home for the tour, a nonprofit founded in 2002 by Ali and Joe Torre to provide healing and education services to youth who have been traumatized by exposure to violence including domestic violence, child abuse, teen dating abuse, and sexual assault to help break the cycle of violence.
