Real Friends enjoyed their rise from the underground through endless EPs that highlighted their interesting take on pop-punk/rock laced with exaggerated pronunciation and emotional lyrics.

The difficult second album seems like a slight step back for the Illinois band, who have opted for a mark 2 instead of progressing or experimenting at all.

It’s happened, Slam Dunk Festival has officially turned 10 years old. Back when it started out in 2006, it was composed of seven bands on one stage, headlined by Fall Out Boy.
