Boys Like Girls will return with their first album for 11 years this autumn.

'Sunday at Foxwoods', the long awaited follow-up to 2012's 'Crazy World', is due out on October 20 through Fearless/Concord Records. It will feature their previously shared singles The Outside, Language, and Blood and Sugar.

As a further preview, alongside news of the record they've revealed the cut Cry, an emotional, piano-led ballad. Lead vocalist Martin Johnson said:

“I’m not really a campfire style singer, but on my third or fourth date with my now wife she asked me to play her a song. I don’t know why, but I picked up the guitar and started playing ‘CRY’ in front of someone for the first time. A crazy thing happened…I felt the song in the way I had always wanted to. I meant the words I was singing…and I meant them for her.

"To me, every song is a living, breathing thing. Some are born before their time. Some are just supposed to make you feel good, some have great purpose. Sometimes when you write, you’re telling a real story, but sometimes it’s a made up one. Sometimes the words just sound good and you figure it out later. This one took years to reveal itself.

“My hope is that ‘CRY’ finds its purpose and meaning to the listener a bit quicker than it took for me. More importantly, my hope is that it finds the ears of those who need it. A couple weeks ago Beef and I were sitting in my truck outside the studio, critically listening to mixes of our first album together in a dozen years. At the end of “CRY,” I looked to the passenger seat and the toughest man I know had tears running down his face and into his beard. We hugged and cried together in the car, two old friends still making music together, still pushing each other to be better musicians and men 20 years after we met in 2003.

"Even if this one is just for us, I know in my heart that it was worth waiting until the time was right. And after 10 years of waiting, I'm finally ready to sing it, and we're finally ready to share it with you. The time is right.”

The Boston band will support the record with a previously announced North American tour throughout the fall. Tickets are on sale now. Head below for dates and details.
