In another episode of Ernie Ball's “Sound Of Warped” series, Real Friends' Eric Haines tells us about what music inspired him when he was younger, and how that changed over time, as well as sharing how the band prepares for Warped and what kind of gear they like to use live.

“In the studio we have the luxury of having a lot of different amp options,” says Haines in regards to the band's live sound with limited equipment versus the sound produced in the studio.

Watch the video to see what Haines has to say, and be sure to check back for more from Ernie Ball's “Sound Of Warped” series this summer!
