Check Out: 'Everyone That Dragged You Here' EP
Vocalist Dan Lambton says when Real Friends came together in late 2010, he and the other members wanted to be in a band they could take seriouslyâ€”but not too seriously. â€śNot to the point where we couldn't have any fun,â€ť he says. â€śWe were just sick of dealing with people who had enormous egos and/or no work ethic.â€ť After putting out Everyone That Dragged You Here, Real Friends received a lot of momentum from fans spreading the word, posting Facebook statuses about them and Tweeting links to their Bandcamp page. â€śWord of mouth is a very strong method of getting a band out there,â€ť Lambton says, â€śand we are so humbled to have people that care about our music enough to share it with their friends.â€ť The self-described â€śpop-punk-with-a-hint-of-suburban-midwest-popâ€ť outfit draw from a variety of influences. â€śWe try to keep an open mind when writing our music,â€ť says Lambton.
