PropertyOfZack have posted an interview with Real Friends' bassist/lyricist Kyle Fasel. He really likes us.
It is tough. I’ve learned to back away from social media and from looking at what people say. We’re always really active with social media, updating our stuff, but in terms of looking at what people say, I try and stay away from it. AbsolutePunk is a terrible website. I don’t look at it, because I really truly think that Jason Tate stirs things up. I get it, that’s his job, he makes money because people go to the website and he wants to stir things up. That’s fine.

A new Real Friends' song called "Cover You Up" has hit Tumblr. It features Joe Taylor of Knuckle Puck.

Update: It's been removed for being too boney-eye'd and sleepy-knee'd.

We're excited to announce that We Are The Union are reuniting to play Four Chord Music Festival at Club Zoo in Pittsburgh, PA on August 31st. Real Friends have also been added to the impressive line-up, which already includes The Wonder Years, The SpacePimps, Modern Baseball, Turnover, Rust Belt Lights and more. Tickets are on sale now.
In 2012 we decided to walk away from We Are The Union. We were frustrated. We felt like there wasn't a place in the music scene for us. This is our return, our rebellion. This is us with our middle fingers up, proud to push against the grain and be different. See you in Pittsburgh.

We were out at The Wonder Years' sold-out stop of The Greatest Generation Tour with Fireworks, Real Friends, Citizen and Modern Baseball in New York City on April 17, and our friend Sheri Berman came with us to shoot some photos. Check out the shots on our Facebook page. Now that the North American leg of this tour is over, we want to hear from you guys about your experiences at the stop you went to and what you thought of the tour package as a whole. Remember, if you're in Europe or the UK, The Greatest Generation Tour hits you in May.

Read my review and check out my photos of the sold out Worcester, MA stop of The Wonder Years's The Greatest Generation World Tour with Fireworks, Citizen, Real Friends, and Modern Baseball.
The Greatest Generation World Tour is yet another testament to why The Wonder Years are the gold standard for the genre. Between their honest songs, their tight stage presence, their rabid fanbase and even the bands they surround themselves with, The Wonder Years have set the bar impossibly high for any other band hoping to take the pop-punk throne.

Fearless Records has signed Real Friends. The band is currently in the studio in Chicago, recording their new album slated for release in summer 2014.
"We are beyond stoked to be signing with Fearless Records. We were hesitant with signing to a record label in general, but with Fearless it was different. They made it feel more like a family. We have always held family close to our hearts. We are proud to say we are now part of the Fearless Records family. " - Real Friends

Read our show review of the April 14th Austin stop of Senses Fail's show with Such Gold, Real Friends, and Major League.
Over a decade in now and Senses Fail still deliver one hell of a live show. Here’s a band that really helped anchor our scene back in 04, and they’re still dominating today. Talk about seasoned professionals. And man can Buddy Nielsen scream his lungs out. If you can scream a song in Spanish (“Mi Amor”) and not miss a note, while still getting the crowd going while, I think you’re doing something exactly right. All the classics, from “Shark Attack” to “Lady in a Blue Dress” and the final “187,” sound even better ten years later, as Nielsen’s vocal abilities are...
