The tour is being held in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of Boys Like Girls’ self-titled debut album and will see them performing their debut album in its entirety at their headlining dates. Boys Like Girls released their self-titled debut album in 2006. It sold over 700,000 copies and certified gold in the US, and produced hits including ‘The Great Escape’, ‘Hero/Heroine’ and ‘Thunder’. The band’s last album was 2012’s ‘Crazy World’.
Midnight Fusic released their self-titled debut album earlier this year in February. The album included singles they released throughout their previous years, such as ‘Vertigo’ featuring Lunadira, and three songs from their 2019 ‘Caramel Cream’ EP. The album also included a host of new tracks including ‘Sandiwara’ featuring Indonesian act Pijar, which was the band’s first song written and performed in Bahasa; as well as ‘I Don’t Wanna Dream Tonight’, a song that the band shared was “heavily influenced” by Fleetwood Mac and The 1975.
The band recently collaborated with rapper Lil’ Asian Thiccie for the R&B-flavoured single ‘Summer Love’, which was released on August 25.
