After a brief 2011 hiatus, self-proclaimed emo-rock band Boys Like Girls is back! As their name might suggest, songs about boys liking girls are definitely prevalent in their repertoire. But this year finds the band with a more mature sound, touching on heavy themes like adolescent promiscuity. Comprised of Martin Johnson (vocalist/guitarist), Paul DiGiovanni (lead guitar), Morgan Dorr (bass), and John Keefe (drums), the Boston group has toured with major acts like Cute Is What We Aim For and Butch Walker. Known for their strong and lasting connection with fans, Boys Like Girls was voted Spin magazine’s Artist of the Year in 2006. Their long-awaited new album Crazy World is out now.
