Real Friends are an American pop punk band from the south side of Chicago, Illinois. The band consists of bassist Kyle Fasel, guitarist Dave Knox, vocalist Dan Lambton, drummer Brian Blake and guitarist Eric Haines. The band formed in late 2010, releasing their debut EP, This is Honesty, in early 2011. They have since released three more EPs - Everyone That Dragged You Here (2012), Three Songs About The Past Year of My Life (2012) and Put Yourself Back Together (2013). An acoustic release, entitled Acoustic Songs, was released in May 2012. The band have toured consistently since their formation; having played with the likes of Rise Against, Billy Talent, The Wonder Years, I Call Fives, Mixtapes, Citizen, Such Gold and Senses Fail.
The band signed to Fearless Records in December 2013. The band was initially hesitant to sign to a label but called Fearless "different. They made it feel more like a family." The group "still wanted full control of band" while Fearless would help with marketing and distribution, according to Fasel. The band recorded their debut studio album in February with producer Seth Henderson. The band released its debut studio album, 'Maybe This Place Is the Same and We're Just Changing' on July 22, 2014. The album sold over 10,300 copies, charting at number 24 on the Billboard 200. The band played on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour supporting the album's release. The band's 'More Acoustic Songs' EP was released for Record Store Day in April 2015.
Fearless Records announced that a new Real Friends record would be released on their label in 2016, through a post on their official Twitter account, which was made on December 22, 2015. On April 1, 2016, the band announced the title of their new album as being 'The Home Inside My Head,' along with the album's release date, cover art and track listing. On the same day, the band released a music video for "Colder Quicker." The album was released on May 27, 2016.
