We’re a little late to the announcement party (partially because time is slipping through our fingers and partially because we’re so damn excited about this tour that we were too busy freaking out), so for those of you who aren’t aware yet – the self-titled album from Boys Like Girls turns 10 this year. With the anniversary, the band announced that they will be hitting the road this August on a six-date tour playing the album in its entirety from front to back!
In addition to the tour, the band released the first ever vinyl pressing of the album via Field Day Records. The pre-sale for the first pressing, which included a tricolor vinyl with a collage of the band members’ personal photos, has already sold out. However, a translucent red vinyl with a lyric sheet insert has been announced for the second pressing and can be purchased here (as with the first pressing, there are only 500 vinyls being made of this bad boy, so get your hands on it while you can)!
Check out the dates for the 10-year anniversary tour below!
Last weekend, The Academy Is… performed their debut album, Almost Here, in it’s entirety at Riot Fest Chicago! Just days later, the band announced they would be hitting the road this winter with PartyBaby for a 10 year anniversary tour for Almost Here! Tickets are currently available for pre-sale where fans can purchase special ticket packages. Though limited, VIP tickets include a ticket to the show with early entry, pre-show hangs and an individual Polaroid with the band, exclusive hand-made print by the Butcher, pre-signed and numbered Almost Here 10 Year Anniversary posters and exclusive VIP cloth bracelets. Fans can also purchase side stage and/or post-how bus hang packages, all of which are available here!
