MUSIC NEWS - Pop-rockers BOYS LIKE GIRLS have announced they'll embark on a coast-to-coast co-headlining national tour with THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS. The run kicks off September 13 in
Hampton Beach, NH and the tour; with support from The Ready Set and Parachute, will give BOYS LIKE GIRLS you the opportunity to hear new material from their full length album CRAZY WORLD, due out this fall via Columbia Records. In the meantime, three songs from the LP, "Be Your Everything," "Life Of The Party" and "The First Time" can be heard now as the CRAZY WORLD EP (purchase below).
"I've always been a big fan of The All-American Rejects and couldn't be more delighted to be sharing the stage with them this fall," BOYS LIKE GIRLS front man MARTIN JOHNSON says. "I think it's going be a great time for both the fans and bands alike. Looking forward to a really great couple of months." BOYS LIKE GIRLS (singer/songwriter/guitarist MARTIN JOHNSON, drummer JOHN KEEFE, lead guitarist PAUL DIGIOVANNI and bassist MORGAN DORR) recently debuted an artful lyric video for their new single "Be Your Everything", and MNN has it below. http://youtu.be/UttOVBD-Rvw.
Meanwhile, the official music video, conceptualized by the band's frontman MARTIN JOHNSON, will be released in the coming weeks and features actress Allie Gonino of ABC Family's "The Lying Game." About the song "Be Your Everything," JOHNSON said recently, "It's a great transition from where the band was. We came from a wall of guitars, and the sound has evolved." He adds: "The only time I really express my feelings is when I'm writing music. That's how it's been since I was a little kid. This song is about the moment when it becomes okay to say, I love you."
BOYS LIKE GIRLS are known for Johnson's resonant vocals and their soaring melodies in sharp, movingsongs. CRAZY WORLD--the band's first album in three years confidently builds on their signature sound with an array of non-stop hooks. "Crazy World takes you to a different place," JOHNSON explains. "That was the point. Everything is so hyperactive and the digital distractions can be overwhelming. Step aside in this Crazy World and experience the things that truly matter."
