Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Goo Goo Dolls have announced the release of their new album, Magnetic, on May 7, 2013. The debut single from Magnetic, entitled Rebel Beat, is being met with coast to coast excitement in advance of its official launch February 12th.

The band, singer/guitarist John Rzeznik, bassist Robby Takac, and drummer Mike Malinin
recorded in New York, London and LA with Gregg Wattenberg (Train), Rob
Cavallo (Green Day), John Shanks (Bon Jovi), and Greg Wells (Katy
Perry). Magnetic is the tenth studio release for the Buffalo, NY trio. "I'm so proud of our new album," says Rzeznik. "I've had such a great time and learned so much from the amazingly talented people who worked on it with me." He continues, "I
think that positive energy comes across on the songs. Writing and
recording Magnetic changed my thinking about making music and doing it
in a fun way."
Goo Goo Dolls have sold over 10 million albums worldwide, with 14 Top 10
Radio hits, more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC
format. They are the only artist to have three songs on Billboard's "Top
100 Songs from 1992-2012" including the Number One slot, for "Iris."
John Rzeznik has been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal
David Starlight Award and they have shared the stage with everyone from
The Rolling Stones to Taylor Swift, who recently covered "Iris" with
Rzeznik onstage. Most recently Goo Goo Dolls honored President Barack
Obama with a headlining slot at The Creative Coalition's Inaugural Ball,
which took place in Washington, DC.
