This week, Boys Like Girls announced they will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of their self-titled album, originally released August 22nd, 2006. The band will commemorate the album that kickstarted their multi-platinum career with a 6-show tour in August and a special first-edition translucent red, lime green, and teal vinyl pressing of the album.
That’s right, the album that was most definitely the soundtrack to your high school romances is finally getting the celebration it deserves. Don’t tell me you don’t remember fantasizing about an adventurous relationship every time “The Great Escape” came on the radio, making “Thunder” your “song” of your summer romance, or requesting “Hero/Heroine” at all your school dances so you could slow dance with your sweetheart.
General on-sale tickets are available tomorrow, Friday 5/13 at 12pm local time. Tickets and vinyl orders can be placed on the band’s website.
The full lineup of tour dates are listed below:
8/5 – Boston MA @ House of Blues
8/6 – New York NY @ PlayStation Theater
8/7 – Sayreville NJ @ Starland Ballroom
8/10 – Philadelphia PA @ The Fillmore
