Real Friends to Embark on National Headlining Tour Next Month
Real Friends, fast-becoming one of the biggest unsigned bands in pop-punk, announced last night their first-ever U.S. headlining tour in conjunction with PropertyOfZack.com. The Chicago-based quintet will head out around the country for just over a month, beginning October 4 in Grand Rapids, MI and ending on November 9 in Freehold, NJ.
Real Friends will be supported throughout the entirety of the tour by Pentimento (Paper + Plastick Records), Mixtapes (No Sleep Records) and Forever Came Calling (Pure Noise Records). The four bands represent a cross-section of all that is good about pop-punk and independent music today, featuring different takes on the genre for fans to enjoy all in one show.
In addition to standard ticket purchases, there will be a $25 VIP option that grants these ticket-buyers early entry into the show for an exclusive acoustic session with Real Friends and a limited-edition poster. All fans who preorder tickets will be entered into a drawing to win a backpack full of Glamour Kills clothing / swag; one backpack will be given away each night of the tour.
Real Friends continues to promote its Put Yourself Back Together EP, which can be purchased on iTunes. With their DIY attitude, the band has gained the respect of bands and fans all over the country. Real Friends continues to grow in popularity daily with their hard work, relatable lyrics, energetic music, and dedicated fan base.
Last spring, Real Friends opened for Senses Fail on their national tour, followed by two weeks on the Vans Warped Tour, where their crowds were passionate and loud regardless of where and when they played. This winter, the band will head overseas with The Wonder Years to play their first ever UK tour, and have other exciting international plans in the works, including Australia’s Soundwave Festival in the spring of 2014.
This tour marks a stepping stone in Real Friends’ career, as they break away from the shadows of other pop punk artists embrace their growing, passionate fan base and all that awaits them.
Tour dates are as follows:
