Goo Goo Dolls, deemed as the reigning rock champions of the '90s will be back with an EP titled 'EP 21'. The rock band from Buffalo, New York announced the surprise on Monday, April 12 revealing that the new EP will comprise of never-heard-before stripped-down renditions of four fan-favorites spanning several albums of the band’s catalog.
Goo Goo Dolls has ruled the '90s as one of the most successful rock bands. The American rock band that started as a loud, garage punk band with guitarist/vocalist John Rzeznik, bassist/vocalist Robby Takac went on to produce over 19 top ten singles including 'Iris' which has been crowned the number one pop song by Billboard in their "Top 100 Pop Songs 1992–2012" chart. The Grammy-nominated group that debuted in 1986 has produced thirteen studio albums, sold 12 million records worldwide, regarded as the record-breaking artistes who have garnered four GRAMMY Award nominations and spawned 14 number one and Top 10 hits at Hot AC—"the most of any artist.”
'EP21' produced by frontman John Rzeznik will be released on April 16.
'EP21' has been a fruit of guitarist and main vocalist John Rzeznik's effort in pandemic where he worked on never-heard-before, stripped-down and heart-touching renditions of four tracks that can be traced back to several albums of the band’s catalog. Check the tracklist of the album below.
'As I Am'
'Feel The Silence 2'
'Happiest Of Days acoustic'
The four tracks of the EP carefully selected from various albums of Goo Goo Dolls manage to bring out the very essence of the Goo Goo Dolls that has been loved by the fans for decades. The EP starts with 'As I Am' with the hook that says "Calling out for you again, you always find my way, Calling out for you, you know you heal these empty days", instantly taking listeners to that wistful lover's voice reminiscing of 'Iris.' The stripped-down version of 'Bulletproof Angel' strikes all the right chords of the heart where the lyrics say "Angel, you're bulletproof/ You're so high, you see the truth/ And I'm still on the ground pretending I/ That I could be like you."
'Feel The Silence 2' ups the tempo and the soulful chorus of this track easily makes it one of the best tracks of Goo Goo Dolls. 'Happiest of Days acoustic' shows why even with a stripped-down version, Goo Goo Dolls can deliver the warmest of vocals with exceptional music-making.
