Boys Like Girls and Good Charlotte Tour

The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/12/08 - (PR) 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. 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.

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.

Good Charlotte's latest release, Good Morning Revival (Epic/Daylight), is the best-selling group's fourth full-length album and features the hit singles "The River" and "(I Don't Wanna Be In Love) Dance Floor Anthem"-- which the Associated Press called "An instantly infectious toe-tapper." Good Charlotte's newest single "Where Would We Be Now" will officially impact radio on May 20 and will be available everywhere digitally. Fans can hear the "Where Would You Be Now" remix online now at www.goodcharlotte.com

The Hollywood-based Metro Station create a hook-filled danceable pop sound mirroring the yearning of their generation and the excitement of contemporary life. Masters of traditional song craft and modern technology, Metro Station released its eponymous debut album (Red Ink/Columbia Records) in September 2007. The group's current single, "Shake It," reached #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #22 on the Pop 100.

In 2007, when The Maine formed in Phoenix, Arizona, many of the band's members were still in high school. Signing with Fearless Records that same year, the group recorded the EP "The Way We Talk," which hit #45 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart and #10 on the Heatseekers chart in 2008. The group's debut album, produced by Matt Squire, is slated for release on July 8, 2008.
