Goo Goo Dolls New Album, Something For The Rest Of Us, Debuts at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart

The Band Perform This Evening on Lopez Tonight and on America's Got Talent Finale on Wednesday

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  Best-selling rock band Goo Goo Dolls reaffirm their position as one of America's most beloved rock bands with the Top 10 debut of their new studio album Something For The Rest Of Us. Released on August 31st, Something For The Rest Of Us debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart last week. In conjunction with its release, the band performed their current single, "Home," on NBC's The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on September 1st.

Keeping the momentum going, the Goo Goo Dolls will also perform this evening, September 13th, on TBS's Lopez Tonight and September 15th on the season finale of NBC's hit show America's Got Talent, during which they'll perform a two-song medley of "Home" plus their classic hit "Slide."

Written and recorded over the past few years, Something For The Rest Of Us delivers another dose of great Goos' songs such as "Sweetest Lie," "Notbroken," "Soldier," and "Home." With his songwriting, singer-guitarist Johnny Rzeznik confronts some of the issues that have become part of many people's everyday lives.

Check out what the media are saying about Something For The Rest Of Us:

"...emotional rock anthems" -- USA Today

"...display[s] both emotional and musical heft and dynamic ebb and flows" - Billboard

"Something For The Rest Of Us is an album that honestly reflects the times in which it was conceived and recorded. It's also one of the strongest records in the Goos' canon." -- Buffalo News

"Rzeznik's voice is in its best shape... with more distinction and emotion than ever, and he's retained the rare ability to articulate thoughts in few words (a Lennon-ism)." -- Aquarian Weekly

"All 12 tracks offer the rich themes, smart lyrics and rock-worthy melodies that have made this trio a favorite for more than two decades." -- Salt Lake Tribune

"It is apparent on Something For The Rest Of Us that the Goo Goo Dolls still know how to rock a love song." -- Seattle Post Intelligencer
