Boys Like Girls Tap 3OH!3, The Ready Set, More For Track Remix

Boys Like Girls 2023

Boys Like Girls just released the collaboration of collaborations with the reimagining of “THE OUTSIDE (OUTSIDER’S VERSION)” with help from 3OH!3, The Ready Set, The Summer Set, and State Champs

Currently, on a headlining tour with support from these featured alternative artists, this mega-scene kid crossover is just what the doctor ordered. Martin Johnson, Derek DiScanio, Brian Logan Dales, Jordan Witzigreuter, Sean Foreman, and Nathaniel Motte unite their voices in perfect modern rock harmony. Check out the tour-centric music video for the track below. 

Johnson noted that he wanted the current Boys Like Girls tour to feel like a mini-festival with good friends. “I had written ‘THE OUTSIDE‘ with Sean Foreman from 3OH!3 some years back and loved the idea of making a version with them on it. After booking the tour and becoming friends with Derek [DiScanio] from State Champs, we also talked about doing a feature,” he said. “So when Brian [Logan Dales] and I from The Summer Set started texting, and Jordan from The Ready Set jumped on a couple shows, we knew what we had to do.”

He goes on to say, “Already an underdog anthem dedicated to the music scene we grew up in…’THE OUTSIDE’ was the perfect song for a full-on circus version with all the boys. Making this version was one of the most rewarding projects I’ve ever worked on. Hearing all the different voices, approache, and styles on the same song and puzzle piecing it all together was a massive musical gift. We all enjoyed working with these bands so much and can’t wait for you to catch the tour this autumn and hear this new take on the song.”
