Boys Like Girls

Boys Like Girls specialize in sugary, emo-tinged pop punk rooted in late-'90s alternative rock. Based out of the Boston suburbs, the band found mainstream success in 2006 when their eponymous debut album soared to the upper echelons of the Billboard 200. 2008's Love Drunk fared even better, blazing its way into the Top Ten on the strength of the Taylor Swift-assisted single "Two Is Better Than One." The group charted a new course in 2012 with the release of the country-pop-leaning Crazy World, their last studio album for over a decade. Boys Like Girls returned in 2023 with the punchy single "Blood & Sugar," heralding their fourth studio album, Sunday at Foxwoods. Boys Like Girls formed in Andover in 2004 around the talents of singer/guitarist Martin Johnson, bassist Bryan Donahue, drummer John Keefe, and guitarist Paul DiGiovanni (the last two members being cousins). After posting several demo recordings online, the band's lively hooks and youthful enthusiasm had garnered them quite a following while also catching the attention of industry players like booking agent Matt Galle (My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday) and producer Matt Squire (Panic at the Disco, Northstar), both of whom contacted the group about working together. Following a national PureVolume-sponsored tour with Hit the Lights and A Thorn for Every Heart, Boys Like Girls entered the studio with Squire to record their debut album. The resulting self-titled effort, which evoked the poppy, punky side of emo, along the lines of Jimmy Eat World and Fall Out Boy, appeared in August 2006 on Red Ink. Although initial sales were slow, the album eventually went gold, and tracks like "Thunder" helped Boys Like Girls maintain a presence on the Billboard charts throughout 2008. Following the release of the concert album/video Read Between the Lines, the band returned to the recording studio to commence work on a second album, which appeared in 2009 under the title Love Drunk. The record, which debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200, included a hit duet with Taylor Swift and featured slick, radio-friendly production. Two years later, the band announced it had parted ways with bassist Donahue. In late 2012, Boys Like Girls released the Crazy World EP, then followed it up with the Crazy World LP. Both releases showed the band, now with new bassist Morgan Dorr, casting off any vestiges of emo-pop in favor of a new country-pop approach. The band members spent the next decade focusing on other projects while keeping the Boys Like Girls torch alive with sporadic live performances. They returned in full in early 2023 with the release of the propulsive alt-rock single "Blood & Sugar," ahead of the arrival of their long-gestating fourth studio album, Sunday at Foxwoods, later that year.
