“I’ve always been a big fan of The All-American Rejects and couldn’t be more delighted to be sharing the stage with them this fall,” BOYS LIKE GIRLS frontman MARTIN JOHNSON says. “I think it’s going be a great time for both the fans and bands alike. Looking forward to a really great couple of months.”

About the song “Be Your Everything,” JOHNSON says, “It’s a great transition from where the band was. We came from a wall of guitars, and the sound has evolved.” He adds: “The only time I really express my feelings is when I’m writing music. That’s how it’s been since I was a little kid. This song is about the moment when it becomes okay to say, I love you.”

BOYS LIKE GIRLS–singer/songwriter/guitarist MARTIN JOHNSON, drummer JOHN KEEFE, lead guitarist PAUL DIGIOVANNI and bassist MORGAN DORR–are known for JOHNSON’s resonant vocals and their soaring melodies in sharp, moving songs. CRAZY WORLD–the band’s first album in three years–confidently builds on their signature sound with an array of non-stop hooks.

Crazy World takes you to a different place,” JOHNSON explains. “That was the point. Everything is so hyperactive and the digital distractions can be overwhelming. Step aside in this Crazy World and experience the things that truly matter.”
