Boys Like Girls have released yet another new single, “The Outside,” which is available today via all major streaming platforms and can be listened to below. It is the third single from Boys Like Girls this year, following “Language” and “Blood and Sugar.”

“The Outside” delves into the bittersweet of nostalgia of growing up and the power of music to shape one’s identity. The single is a triumphant outsider anthem that aims to capture the essence of finding solace and connection through shared experiences.

Music shaped my life choices – clothes, friends, even the stickers on my locker door,” explains lead vocalist Martin Johnson. “In high school, I proudly displayed my music taste through my style. Finding like-minded friends was crucial, forming a lasting gang.’The Great Escape,’ was a tribute to those friends. Now, ‘The Outside’ celebrates our outsider spirit. We’re BOYS LIKE GIRLS, and this one’s for you.

With their return gaining momentum, Boys Like Girls  is eager to hit the road once again and bring their electrifying performances to fans across the nation. The “SPEAKING OUR LANGUAGE TOUR” kicks off on September 17 in Charlotte, NC, and will stretch until November, concluding in Raleigh, NY.
