Stars and the Sea is the second album by Boy Kill Boy. It was released on March 31, 2008. It was recorded in three recording studios in Cornwall, Brighton, and Los Angeles. The track, "Loud and Clear", was made available for a free download from the band's website.

Much deliberation was made over the name of the album. In the December 2007 edition of Uncut, the magazine claimed that it would be a self-titled album, also HMV had the title listed as Loud and Clear, although MTV2UK and Amazon had both named it Stars and the Sea. It was finally announced in early November 2007 that it would be called this.

It charted at number 98 on April 6, 2008. The relatively poor sales of the record and subsequent label issues have been claimed to be behind the split of the band later in 2008.[citation needed]
