Real Friends kondigt album aan
Het is alweer even geleden dat er nieuw materiaal naar buiten kwam van Real Friends. Nu komt de band met een leuke update voor zijn fans: de nieuwe plaat is opgenomen!
Dit maakte de band bekend via social media. Real Friends laat weten dat er bewust is gekozen om niet eerder mede te delen dat het album werd opgenomen. De band wilde zich goed kunnen focussen zonder afleidingen van buiten af. Nu is de plaat volledig opgenomen en zal later dit jaar worden uitgebracht. Zodra er meer details bekend zijn over dit schijfje, lees je dat uiteraard hier bij Smash Press. Hieronder kun je het volledige bericht van Real Friends lezen.
In the winter of 2014 we started writing our second full length record. In the beginning of the writing process the songs quickly fell into a special place. As time went on we finished more songs. The songs became attached to us unlike any other material we had written before. There was just something about these. They just felt right when we played them. At one point we were worried we wouldn’t have enough time to finish writing the record. In the Fall of 2015, when we were on the AP Tour, we finished writing most of the record. We never experienced writing on the road before. But there was no other choice. I’m not going to lie, touring and writing at the same time was stressful some days. Not to mention the overall pressure that goes into following up the last record we released. But that adds to how much more went into these songs. Now something we kept quiet until now…This past January we went to California to record the record. It was produced and recorded by the legendary Steve Evetts. We also wrote a handful of songs with the very talented Mike Green. About two weeks ago we finished recording. We didn’t really tell anyone that we were going to record. We wanted to put all of our efforts into it without distractions. It was honestly the hardest thing we have ever done. We were pushed to our limits. We were brought closer together as a band. We couldn’t be happier with the results. So basically what we are trying to say is that our second full length record is done. It’s recorded. We put everything we possibly could into it. And most importantly, we are stoked to share it with you this year. More to come. Thanks for sticking with us. – RF | photos:@ericteti
