Info for Magnetic
Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Goo Goo Dolls present their 2013 album, entitled Magnetic. 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.
What’s the story behind the album’s title? 'I was on the phone with my manager and he was yelling into the phone about coming up with a title for the album. That word just came out of my mouth. I just spat the word out: Magnetic. That’s good. And then he was like, “Ooh, I like that.” And I liked it too, so we just called it that. It was that simple. I’m very bad at naming things, putting titles on my songs, I usually wait till the last minute to do that.' (John Rzeznik)
Many songs, like “Bulletproofangel” and “Last Hot Night” seem to have the lyrical style you’re you guys are known for, but others seem to be starting a new era in your sound. What caused the change?
'A lot of things. Certain things in your life change, and you just feel better. When we made the album Something for the Rest of Us, I was in a really bad place. Everyone goes through hard times, and I just happened to be making a record during mine. It was a pretty honest reflection of where I was during that time, just like this is an honest reflection of what I was thinking, feeling and doing when I was writing those songs. And I did a lot of collaborating on this album and I really enjoyed that. I was just so happy to do it. It was a joy to get up and work every day and I wasn’t sitting in a room by myself. I was learning from other writers and good friends I have a lot of respect for and they have respect for me.' (John Rzeznik)

br>The Goo Goo Dolls
After more than two decades as a band, with nine albums, a catalog of songs that have become ingrained in the pop consciousness and countless concerts for millions of fans, the Goo Goo Dolls are feeling particularly good about their new album: Magnetic.
More to the point, the Goo Goo Dolls are feeling particularly good. Period. “This album was really upbeat and fun,” says John Rzeznik, the trio’s primary singer, songwriter and guitarist since it was founded in Buffalo in 1986. “I don’t think we’ve made a record like this in a while. Just had a great time doing it.” It’s a great time overall for the musicians. Bassist Robby Takac, whose partnership with Rzeznik has been the band’s foundation since the start, and his wife have just had their first child. And Rzeznik is getting married this summer. Not to mention that recently three of the band’s songs placed in Billboard’s Top 100 of 1992-2012, with “Iris” standing at No. 1. That song has also connected with a new generation, as Dolls fan Taylor Swift has been performing it in her concerts.
That joy is all there in the spirit of the 11 new songs on the album, for which Rzeznik, Takac and drummer Mike Malinin — the lineup steady since 1995 — recorded in New York, London and Los Angeles with Gregg Wattenberg (Train), Rob Cavallo (Green Day), John Shanks (Bon Jovi) and Greg Wells (Katy Perry). From the celebratory single “Rebel Beat” to the love-rediscovery ballad “Slow It Down,” from the blue-collar anthem “Keep the Car Running” to the meltingly romantic “Come to Me,” Magnetic is an album bursting with a spirit of renewal. And nowhere is it more explicit than in one of two Takac-penned songs: “Happiest of Days.”
“All the writing is an extension of ourselves,” Rzeznik says. “My life’s amazing. When I sit and think about my life, it really has been incredible.” No argument from Takac.
“It’s pretty amazing to me,” he says. “All these years now we’ve been playing in this band together and we still somehow manage to grow. That allows us to keep making it happen. We never denied what the situation was at the moment. Right now we’re here and living this moment, and some cool things are happening in our lives.”
It’s a contrast from the poetically introspective tone of 2010’s Something For the Rest of Us, which reflected some personal turmoil.
“This album feels like this is where we came out the other side and are in the daylight again,” he says. “Got a little dark on the last record. But that was something I needed to do, where I was at. This is where I am now. Yeah, you know — I got myself up, brushed myself off and looked around, and things were fine. Why not celebrate?”
Even a dark-sounding title, such as “When The World Breaks Your Heart,” reveals a world of happiness.
“That’s a song about friendship,” he says. “Real friendship. About when you find out who the people are who really care about you and love you, like on moving day, or times of need.”
With that in mind, the making of the album represented a break from past methods too. Rzeznik first worked with those collaborators on writing and pre-production of the songs.
This album contains no booklet.
