Boys Like Women are again, child.
At present, the pop-punk band dropped their first tune since 2012, “Blood and Sugar” (out on Fearless Information/Harmony). It’s a welcomed return from the Boston-bred group, and as indulgent as its lyrics about an intoxicating, if unfulfilling relationship, are — that includes overvalued percussion, guitars, and manufacturing resonant of ’80s glam rock.

In a press launch, vocalist Martin Johnson stated the tune is about “an empty calorie
relationship that’s so scrumptious you don’t care” and are “keen to cope with the crash.” He stated, “I believe everybody has an infatuation with one thing unhealthy for them. Cigarettes.
Sports activities playing. Porn. Web validation. Capsules that change the way in which you are feeling. Shopping for too
many footwear. I do know I spend a variety of time attempting to fill the empty gap the place medication was once. I
spend more often than not attempting to fill that gap with ‘perfection.’ However in the long run … no person’s
excellent. Hey. we’re solely blood and sugar, proper?”
It’s not all we’ll be listening to from the pop-rock foursome both. Boys Like Women have confirmed that they’re engaged on new music, with extra updates — together with bulletins of a tour — coming quickly.
