5 times your favorite bands were the ultimate #FriendshipGoals

July 22 2017, 7:01 PM EDT By Whitney Paxton

In a scene where support and unity are so important, nothing makes us happier than seeing some of our favorite bands sharing their BFF moments with the world. Music creates a place where we feel safe and comfortable, allowing bands to connect with their fans through lyrics of support and understanding while developing those friendships so often needed in this crazy world. So when bands not only support their fans but one another as well, we can't help but think that they are true #FriendshipGoals.

Check out some of our favorite BFF moments below!

1. Grayscale and Sleep On It

The day after APMAs Fan Day and what we were sure was a crazy night, Sleep On It seemed to express some genuine concern for their friends in Grayscale. The exchange of tweets between them was both entertaining and heartwarming.

 

 

 

 

2. ROAM and As It Is

When As It Is asked Trash Boat to be nice to their friends in Between You & Me, ROAM got a little bit jealous. The band was quick to fire back, with Trash Boat managing to throw a zinger in there.

 

 

 

3. Movements and Knocked Loose

Pat from Movements and Bryan from Knocked Loose are the true definition of BFF. I mean, just look at them.

4. Real Friends and Knuckle Puck

When Real Friends' Dan Lambton and Knuckle Puck's Joe Taylor came together for a children's song, the end result was just as adorable as we had imagined it would be. The frontmen came together for the Sparrow Sleeps pop-punk children's album Sparrow and Friends Start A Band!, collaborating on a song titled “Sharing Is Cool.” If this isn't #FriendshipGoals we don't know what is.

 

 

Even fans can't deny the Real Friends/Knuckle Puck bond.

5. Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil

Probably one of the most infamous bromance relationships come from PTV and SWS. It seems these two bands do everything from dinner dates to concert selfies together, making this one friendship we wish we could be part of.
