You'll hear hits like "Iris", "Name", and a song that may or may not have been inspired by one of Lubbock's most traveled throughfares: "Slide". The new album, "Chaos In Bloom" is out now, and features the new single: "Going Crazy".

The band was founded in Buffalo, New York, by Johnny Rzeznik and Robby Takac, and have been performing together since 1986. The first saw commercial success with the 1995 album "A Boy Named Goo" and the single "Name", which ultimately reached #2 on the Billboard charts.  This was followed up by the 1998 album "Dizzy Up the Girl", which featured the hits "Iris", "Slide", and "Black Balloon". They released another album in 2002, called "Gutterflower".

In 2004, the band hit with a cover version of Supertramp's "Give A Little Bit", which was a Number 1 Adult Contemporary hit, and featured on their 2006 album "Let Love In".
