Boys Like Girls
About The Event
If it’s true what they say—that there’s something in the dirty water of Boston’s Charles River—then Boys Like Girls drank up. Little else could explain the band’s meteoric rise after forming as teenagers in 2004. In the modern age a story like theirs is designed in boardrooms over speakerphone. The story of Boys Like Girls, however, was forged from the very beginning in the damp basements, garages, and VFW halls of the Massachusetts coastline over tattered lyric books, guitars, drums, and a collective dream. A half billion Spotify streams later it‘s clear this was a fairy tale in its first act, and the world was about to find out.
What followed was the self-titled debut album Boys Like Girls —nearing Multi-Platinum RIAA certification—and its chart-topping successor “Love Drunk” —which bowed at #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Billboard 200. There were a slew of successful singles including Platinum-certified hits “The Great Escape” and “Love Drunk”, as well as Gold-certified hits “Hero/Heroine” and “Thunder”. There was the Platinum-certified, BMI award-winning Hot 100 duet with Taylor Swift, “Two Is Better Than One”. There were sold-out shows, international tours, and unforgettable moments from Madison Square Garden to Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. But by 2012 lead singer and song-writer Martin Johnson was beginning to feel the universe pulling him into a new arena.
Collaboration was nothing new to Johnson, but for the first time, he began writing and producing music not intended for his own band. What followed was another string of wild successes with hits from Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Blink-182, Avril Lavigne, Jason Derulo, Daughtry, Christina Perri, Gavin Degraw, Pentatonix, and more. This—along with Johnson’s bandmates’ own successful musical endeavors—led to a years-long hiatus for Boys Like Girls.
In 2016 the band would return to the road for the 10th Anniversary tour of their debut record. While fans across America were ecstatic for the reunion they’d been waiting for, internally it felt more like a farewell. “It was important to us to leave it all out there for the fans,” Johnson says. “To really give them the ‘thank you’ they deserved.”
In 2019 Boys Like Girls plotted another return to the road—this time to Australia and Asia. However, their plans would be delayed due to the global events of 2020. After making good on their promise to return in 2022 and punctuating the tour by playing both weekends at the lauded Las Vegas When We Were Young Festival, Boys Like Girls meant more than ever not only to the band’s members but to the fans as well.
It’s for this reason that Boys Like Girls has signed with Fearless/Concord Records and will release new music again for the first time in over 10 years. The band now works out of Johnson’s Nashville recording studio and has embraced a newfound sense of creative freedom rooted in the same energy that sparked their seminal output.
