Goo Goo Dolls have released a new music video for “You Are The Answer, which was premiered by People earlier today. Directed by Keenan O’Reilly, the poignant visual sheds a light on violence in the home, a meaningful issue for the band. For the entirety of their recent US tours, Goo Goo Dolls have partnered with Joe Torre Safe at Home, a non-profit founded by Ali & Joe Torre that works to promote children’s safety, well-being, and hope for their future by providing healing services and education to end the cycle of violence and save lives.
Watch the video for “You Are The Answer” here and see below for a complete list of the group’s US tour dates. The track is the second offering from Chaos in Bloom, Goo Goo Dolls’ thirteenth studio album that was released this summer. Earlier this month, the band returned to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to deliver a searing debut late-night TV performance of the lead single from the record “Yeah, I Like You”.
The first album of their career to be produced by frontman John Rzeznik, Chaos in Bloom finds the band continuing to evolve just as they have for nearly four decades together. Consisting of 10 tracks, Chaos in Bloom is an album of biting sarcasm, stadium-ready choruses, and the type of spear-sharp song-writing that’s led them to becoming one of the most influential alternative rock groups of all time.
Goo Goo Dolls are currently on a sprawling nationwide headline US tour – their first since 2019. The tour sees the band perform a career-encompassing set that includes the indelible hit “Iris,” which recently eclipsed 1 billion streams on Spotify. The song, which also recently achieved seven-times platinum status and has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Phoebe Bridgers, Maggie Rogers, Snail Mail and more in recent years, and has been an unwavering staple not only in alt rock music, but pop culture as a whole since its release in 1998.
