New York-based alternative rock band Goo Goo Dolls are still “So Alive.” Well, at least that is what their recently released single says. “So Alive” is the second single from their 11thstudio album, “Boxes,” which is set to be released May 6, 2016.

The song dwells in the pop rock space with a hint of the alternative rock/post-grunge sound that made Goo Goo Dolls a household name in the ’90s. It is an upbeat piano-based track that talks about living life to the fullest and making peace with oneself.

An official press release from Warner Bros Records, the record label of the band, says, “Boxes is a vibrant, sonically forward-looking album that manages to retain what their legions of fans love about the Goo Goo Dolls — indelible melodies, intimate, heartfelt lyrics, and the anthemic, uplifting vibe of their songs — while pushing new boundaries in terms of sound and production [sic].”

Two weeks ago, the band had announced the album and released “Over and Over,” the lead single from “Boxes.”
