Real Friends

Real Friends have released Composure, their most unique album to date. The band went on an unpublicized hiatus during 2017 to deal with problems they were facing individually, but through the troubling time, the bond between the band grew increasingly strong and set them up to create what they say is their best work to date.  Real Friends released Composure on July 13th, and the record is packed with emotions and brutal honesty about the problems the members faced and are overcoming.

Real Friends play with Not Even Slinkys and Bass Hybrid Slinkys.

Comeback Kid

Comeback Kid delivered the Official Music Video for their new single “I’ll Be That.” The song released for their upcoming album Outsider, due out in September. The music video features a man being chased throughout the duration of the video. In the end, he is finally caught against a river, where he is shot down.

Comeback Kid is currently in Europe touring and will be in the United States come this Fall.

Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans dropped a music video for their song, “U R My Guy.” The female quartet out of Philadelphia is a pop-punk band with an awesome 60’s style which is showcased in their music. Full of grooving hooks, the song matches the video very well. The group is shown performing for a boy who is playing on the soccer field with his team. Things get out of hand when the police come and chase them out of the stadium. The video is a parody of a Heath Ledger scene from the 90’s movie, Ten Things I Hate About You. “U R My Guy” is on the group’s debut album, Dig Yourself, released March of 2018.

Queen of Jeans is currently on a U.S. Tour. Check out their website to stay updated on their whereabouts.
