Sometimes the perils of being in a popular alt-rock band comes with its share of misfortune. For Illinois rock group Real Friends, falling victim to a homicidal maniac is one such fate. Premiering today, their new video for 'Me First' from their third studio album 'Composure,' depicts just that. "Have you ever wanted to see our heads cut off," asks bassist Kyle Fasel. "Well, look no further."
'Me First,' the gutsy and intense opening track from their critically-acclaimed album, instills a sense of confidence that flows throughout the whole record. Check it out down below.
The 10 tracks on this album have challenged the band as musicians and friends. From nailing down the best pop hooks with producer Mike Green (The Aces, All Time Low, The Mowgli’s, Paramore) that showcase the band’s progression from a pop-punk band to full-fledged pop-rock juggernaut, to touching on topics in their songwriting such as mental health, being accepted, and above all, learning to love yourself. 'Composure' is out now on Fearless Records.
