Boys Like Girls have enjoyed a meteoric rise after forming as teenagers in 2004. The b& was forged from the very beginning in the damp basements, garages, & VFW halls of the Massachusetts coastline over tattered lyric books, guitars, drums, & a collective dream. A half-billion Spotify streams later it‘s clear this was a fairy tale in its first act. Their self-titled debut album  is nearing Multi-Platinum RIAA certification, while its chart-topping successor Love Drunk  bowed at #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart & Top 10 on the Billboard 200. A slew of successful singles abounded, including Platinum-certified hits “The Great Escape” & “Love Drunk,” as well as Gold-certified hits “Hero/Heroine” & “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, & unforgettable moments from Madison Square Garden to Europe, Asia, South America, & Australia.
By 2012 lead singer & songwriter Martin Johnson was beginning to feel the universe pulling him into a new arena, where he crafted hits for Swift, Ariana Gr&e, Pentatonix, & more. That led to a years-long hiatus for Boys Like Girls.
But in 2016, the b& 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. But it wasn’t.
In 2019, Boys Like Girls plotted another return to the road Down Under. Those plans were delayed due to the global events of 2020. After making good on their promise to return in 2022 & 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 b&’s members, but to the fans as well.
It’s for this reason that Boys Like Girls has signed with Fearless/Concord Records & will release new music again for the first time in over 10 years. The b& now works out of Johnson’s Nashville recording studio & has embraced a newfound sense of creative freedom rooted in the same energy that sparked their seminal output.
