Goo Goo Dolls Debut New Single, ‘Miracle Pill’

Courtesy: Warner Records

Goo Goo Dolls debuted its latest single this week.

The band debuted its new song ‘Miracle Pill’ Wednesday.  The song is streaming now through multiple outlets here.  The song is the title track to the band’s forthcoming new album, which is scheduled for release this fall.

Goo Goo Dolls front man Johnny Rzeznik explained the concept behind the song in a recent interview.

“‘Miracle Pill’ is a metaphor for the instant gratification and relief we seek from our own circumstances,” Rzeznik said.  “Are you sad? Take a pill. Are you lonely? Get popular on social media.  The fact of the matter is no one has 50 friends, much less 5,000.  I’m just trying to articulate my observations of the second decade of the 21st Century, with all its angst, avarice, confusion and insecurities.  We are inundated by bulls***, cheap, shiny objects and false solutions to every problem and desire we have.  I have no answers to these problems, but i don’t believe hero worship, life hacks, shortcuts and escapism are the answers.  I just want to make a real connection with real people in real time.”

Goo Goo Dolls is in the midst of a tour in support of its forthcoming album.  The tour is scheduled to run through Oct. 2 in Lima, Peru and features performances in cities, such as Clarkston, MI; Raleigh, NC and Tampa, FL.  The tour’s current schedule is noted below.

The Mylars Debuts ‘Breathe Again’ Video

Independent rock band The Mylars unveiled the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Breathe Again’ via Pure Grain Audio.  The catchy, guitar-driven song is included in the band’s most recent album, 2017’s Melody Records.  It is a work that will appeal both musically and lyrically to fans of Lifehouse, Goo Goo Dolls, Vertical Horizon, Sister Hazel and other similar acts.

Front man Danny Roselle explained the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview, saying that the song focuses on taking chances and understanding everything that goes into taking those chances.

“‘Breathe Again’ is a song about going up against the odds time and time again and the sacrifices that are constantly being made to follow your dream,” Roselle said.  “It’s a song about the reality of going after that dream and how it can really affect everyone else around you.  It’s about believing in “that moment” and it’s about realizing how spcial that moment is.  The moment those lights go down and it’s just the five of you making it happen.  It’s that moment that keeps me, Quig, Chris, Nashville and Nick all constantly going forward.”

‘Breathe Again’ follows the release of the album’s lead single and video ‘Forever Done,’ last August and its follow-up, the video for the band’s cover of The Cars’ hit song ‘Let’s Go.’  Both songs are included in Melody Records, The Mylars’ debut album.  The band also released a video for its cover of The Tories’ ‘Wonderful Life‘ this past December as a special Christmas gift to audiences.

Melody Records is available now.  It can be downloaded and ordered online now via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.  More information on The Mylars’ new video is available online now along with all of the band’s latest news and more at:
