As Boys Like Girls Go Soph

(Columbia Records) As Boys Like Girls continue to gain momentum for the Sept. 8 release of their sophomore album Love Drunk, the Boston band are gearing up for a busy fall.

After appearing on ABC television's Jimmy Kimmel Live on the night of the album's release, Boys Like Girls will help the New England Patriots kick off their 2009 season with a free concert Sept. 13, outside Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. The following night, frontman Martin Johnson will open the 40th season of Monday Night Football by singing the National Anthem live before his hometown Patriots host the Buffalo Bills.

Love Drunk will be released Sept. 8, but is now available for pre-order on www.boyslikegirls.com, where fans can select from three different exclusive packages, and the first few hundred fans who order will have their names printed in a limited edition "Love Drunk" journal. The album is produced by Brian Howes [Puddle of Mudd, Chris Cornell, Hinder] and S*A*M and Sluggo [Metro Station, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes], and is the highly-anticipated follow-up to Boys Like Girls' self-titled debut, which has been certified gold by the RIAA and sold more than 700,000 units. Combined digital single sales ("The Great Escape," "Hero/Heroine," and "Thunder") are near 4 million.

Boys Like Girls Martin Johnson (vocals, guitar), Paul DiGiovanni (lead guitar, vocals), Brian Donahue (bass guitar, vocals) and John Keefe (drums) will start a headline tour presented by Op with Cobra Starship supporting on October 14, in Buffalo, NY. Op is an authentic, surf inspired California lifestyle brand for all seasons. The Op collection is available exclusively at Walmart in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The complete itinerary for the tour follows, and can also be found on the band's website and on www.op.com.
