Boys Like Girls

Boys Like Girls didn’t have to look far for inspiration when it came time to record ‘Love Drunk,’ the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled Columbia Records debut. Spending three years on the road in support of ‘Boys Like Girls’ which has sold more than 700,000 copies to date, spawning the Top 40 radio hit “The Great Escape”

Recorded between Vancouver and New York City, production duties on the new album were split between the team of S*A*M and Sluggo [Metro Station, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes] on the east coast and Brian Howes [Chris Cornell, Hinder] on the west coast. The band recording half the album with each producer but with end results as seamless as the band’s infectious sound.

Voted Spin.com’s Artist of the Year after receiving an astonishing 68% of the total vote in 2007, Boys Like Girls spent three years on the road, touring with the likes of Good Charlotte and the Vans Warped Tour and developing one of the most loyal fan bases in modern rock. After selling more than 3 million digital singles – including 1.5 million copies of “The Great Escape,” 900,000 copies of “Hero/Heroine” and 600,000 copies of “Thunder” – Boys Like Girls chronicled their rise from Ramen Noodles and sleeping on fans’ floors to headlining their hometown arena with the release of their first DVD in November 2008, ‘readbetweenthelines.’
