girlslikeboys.jpgThe rapidly-rising Boston-based rock/pop band Boys Like Girls will join forces with the multi-platinum-selling American pop/punk ensemble Good Charlotte as co-headliners on the upcoming Soundtrack Of Your Summer tour (full itinerary follows).

In what promises to be one of the year’s biggest blockbuster concert extravaganzas, the Soundtrack Of Your Summer tour will include sets from special guest artists Metro Station and The Maine.

News of the Boys Like Girls/Good Charlotte tour arrives shortly after “Thunder,” the third single from the eponymous Boys Like Girls debut album, impacts Top 40 radio. A remix of “Thunder” posted on the band’s MySpace page ( has already accrued more than 850,000 plays since its initial posting in March 2008.   Boys Like Girls recently ran a contest encouraging fans to create their own music videos for “Thunder” with the best entry scoring a trip for the winner to the band’s official video shoot for the track.

“Thunder” is the latest in an unbroken string of Boys Like Girls crossover hits, following the success of the RIAA platinum certified “The Great Escape” — which charted on the Billboard Hot 100 (#23) Top 10 on the Billboard Pop 100 (#9), Pop 100 Airplay (#7), and Top 40 Mainstream (#8) charts — and “Hero/Heroine” — which reached the Top 40 on the Pop 100 (#32), Pop 100 Airplay (#31), Top 40 Mainstream (#22) and Hot Digital Songs (#32) while peaking in the top half (#43) of the Billboard Hot 100.

Produced by Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Northstar, Hit The Lights), the RIAA Gold-certified Boys Like Girls debut album spent more than forty weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers Top New Artist chart and the SoundScan Alternative New Artist Sales chart, reaching #1 on both charts for three weeks running in June 2007.   The album hit #55 on the Billboard Top 200 that August, remaining on that chart well into 2008.   Boys Like Girls has achieved total sales of well over a half million units.

Boys Like Girls, a veritable touring machine minting pure fandemonium at every show, headlined the SRO “Tourzilla” concert extravaganza after spending the summer of 2007 performing a series of highly-successful shows on the Vans Warped Tour.   The group spent much of January 2008 touring Japan and the UK before returning stateside for a run of shows opening for Avril Lavigne from March through May 2008.
