It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Boys Like Girls. Their last album, Crazy World, was met with lukewarm reception from fans who were used to the group’s original pop-punk sound and were thrown for a loop when it was something along the lines of pop-country. Since its release in 2012, each of the band members have been concentrating on their own projects. On Sunday (May 8), frontman Martin Johnson, guitarist Paul DiGiovanni, and drummer John Keefe all began to post images on their social media pages with old-school pictures of the group, with an overlay of their debut record’s cover art, and the number ten.
On Monday (May 9), the speculation of a ten-year anniversary tour was confirmed. Confirming the announcement, the band posted a minute-and-a-half clip with lots of videos which rank from playing in what looks like an auditorium to their music video for “Thunder.” In honor of their debut, self-titled record, the group has announced plans to hit the road this August for a handful of tenth anniversary tour dates. The tour will officially kick off at the House of Blues in the band’s hometown of Boston on Aug. 5. After a couple of more East Coast stops, the band will wrap up the mini tour on Aug. 12 at Via Theatre in Chicago.
Pre-sale and VIP tickets for the shows will go on sale beginning Tuesday, May 10, at noon EST. For those who miss the pre-sales, general admission tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, May 13 at noon, local time. Watch the band’s tenth anniversary tour announcement below, while the complete list of tour dates can be seen after that.
