Goo Goo Dolls singer Johnny Rzeznik and bassist Robby Takac give Kyle Meredith a call to rundown the stories behind their latest LP, Miracle Pill. It’s an album lyrically built on hope and connection with a side-eye on the political landscape. We hear how touring Dizzy Up the Girl lent a bit of inspiration for this album’s direction, their penchant for anthems, the difference in marketing a band now as oppose to their first tour in ’89, and having artists like Snail Mail and Soccer Mommy covering their songs.
