Boston, Massachusett classics, Boys Like Girls, have announced that they will be touring through several cities!
Playing, from start to finish, their globally cherished self-titled debut album to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of its release. Also for the first time, the band will be releasing its vinyl pressing of their eponymous record.
Boys Like Girls and Field Day records have teamed up to gift their fans the special edition vinyl, which is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies on translucent red, lime, and green vinyl. The packaging also includes photos of the band members during the time when the album was first released.
Being a well-deserved fan-favorite, the album, originally released August 22, 2006, brought three hits to Top 40 Radio and kick-started the boys’ multi-platinum career. The music-lover-gravitating, earworm-worthy tunes generated an astounding amount of mainstream attention.
“The Great Escape” hit #1 on then-cultural-scoreboard Total Request Live, became RIAA-certified Platinum, and was listed top 10 at Top 40 radio. The nostalgic second single, “Hero/Heroine” was certified Gold by the RIAA along with the single “Thunder.”
Boys Like Girls will be playing the entire album this August in their hometown, of Boston, as well as New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Ohio, and Chicago. Pre-sale tickets are officially available, and the first pressing of the special, limited edition vinyl is sold out; however, the restocking of the record will be announced on the band’s website. General on-sale tickets will be available, starting Friday, May 13, 2016, 12 PM local time.
