The visibility, brand growth and full integration that we’ve been able to build into the program with the Warped team has been not only practically beneficial, but also an incredibly fun relationship to build. Over the years that we’ve worked together, we’ve grown our promotional presence, grown the offerings that we can make to our employees, grown our retail partnerships to include ticket sales in multiple markets and now grown to be the name partners of the main stages. It feels like a natural next step for us and we are excited to see what the future brings!”

Illinois pop-puk outfit Real Friends premiered their self-produced documentary called Moving Forward, “a documentary about growth, change and moving forward” here.

The 33 minute film captures personal interviews with each band member, live footage from Warped Tour and Europe, studio footage, and explores the foundation of the band and what drives them forward. Songwriter and bassist Kyle Fasel explains, “Making this documentary gave us a great opportunity to show our fans those inside details. It shows the growth of the band. It shows who we really are as people outside of playing music. And it gives our opinions on various things Real Friends related. We are very excited to show our fans this special thing.” Check out the trailer below.

The band features Dan Lambton (Vocals), Dave Knox (Guitar), Kyle Fasel (bass), Eric Haines (Guitar) and Brian Blake (drums). They are touring behind their latest release Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing, out via Fearless Records.
