 Boys Like Girls Biography

The Boston-area band is paying that feeling forward by focusing on making lasting connections with its fans. It's clear from the first note of their self-titled debut disc, which kicks off with the youthful enthusiasm of "The Great Escape" and closes with the "what's next?" sentiment of ballad "Holiday." In between is emotionally-charged rock that isn't afraid to wear its heart on its sleeve, digs a good pop hook and certainly speaks volumes to anyone who has loved--and maybe got their heart bruised in the process.

However, it's the pure love of the fans that has gotten Boys Like Girls this far already. After years of playing in various bands throughout their high school days, John, Bryan and Martin solidified the BLG line-up with Paul (who, after joining the band, was discovered to be John's cousin). Then, like most smart bands, the guys posted some demos online.

An early demo version of "The Great Escape" and acoustic spin on "Thunder" were the sparks that ignited a firestorm of attention on the band's MySpace and purevolume.com http://purevolume.com pages. By the end of 2005, the guys were topping the purevolume.com http://purevolume.com New Artists chart (and gathering thousands of MySpace friends).

Among those listening online were booking agent Matt Galle (Taking Back Sunday, My Chemical Romance) and producer Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco) who felt that special something in Boys Like Girls' demos. They contacted the band about working together. Plans, and friendships, were made. The guys penned more music for their eventual debut disc and were invited to play on the national Pure Volume tour with A Thorn for Every Heart and Hit the Lights. It was an honor for the young band -- and the guys' first taste of their swelling fanbase.

The band took that energy and headed into the studio with Matt Squire, and the Boys Like Girls sound started to gel.

Energetic, emotional and real, the album progresses through the lust-for-life urgency of "Five Minutes to Midnight," energetic love anthem "Hero/Heroine" to more intense pop ballads of "Learning to Fall" and "Broken Man."

To an active listener the album plays out with the ups and downs of a new relationship, charting the story of youth, love, adventure -- and the loss and heartbreak that is sometimes a byproduct of putting yourself on the line.

After finishing the album, the band was hungry to get back to the fans, touring with Cute Is What We Aim For and then with Butch Walker. This time the experience had changed again--for both the band and audience.
