Today, Tinley Park, IL's Real Friends has released the music video for new song "Scared To Be Alone". The song is taken from the band's new album The Home Inside My Head, set to release May 27th and available for pre-order at

Filmed in Louisville, KY, director Max Moore brought bassist Kyle Fasel's emotionally personal lyrics to life. "The lyrical content of the song is about my mom, so it hits pretty close to home for me," explains Kyle. "My mom and I have a great relationship. But over the past few years she has put herself in some situations that she doesn't deserve. It's hard to watch someone you love make bad decisions. All you want to do is help but you can't seem to get through to them. I think that's something we will all deal with in life. It's real hard but I'm glad to make a positive out of the situation by writing about it."

Real Friends are nominated in the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards for Artist Of The Year. This follows last year's nods for Album Of The Year, "I Don't Love You Anymore" for Best Song, and Kyle Fasel for Best Bassist. The Alternative Press Music Awards will take place on Monday, July 18th in Columbus, OH at Schottenstein Center. Fans can vote for Real Friends at

REAL FRIENDS - Brian Blake [drums], Kyle Fasel [bass guitar], Dave Knox [guitar], Dan Lambton [vocals], Eric Haines [guitar] - Colored by brushstrokes of punk, pop, and emo, Tiley Park IL's Real Friends has become one of the biggest breakout acts following the release of their debut, Maybe This Place Is the Same and We're Just Changing (2014). It bowed at #24 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 10,300 copies first-week. To record The Home Inside My Head, the band treaded new territory by recording with two producers, three songs with producer Mike Green (Pierce The Veil, All Time Low) and nine with Steve Evetts (The Wonder Years, Dillinger Escape Plan). As they expanded their sonic palette, the lyrical vision also grew. Another first, Dan Lambton would split writing duties, penning lyrics to four songs. The Home Inside My Head is Real Friends' coming-of-age story, about a common realization that things won't be the same as they were during childhood, and that's okay. The Chicagoland quintet chose to put this journey on tape and let their lyrics spin into something positive, used as a therapeutic outlet for both Kyle and Dan. Noted as one of Alternative Press Magazine's Most Anticipated Albums of 2016, and a truly personal album for Real Friends, the band hopes The Home Inside My Head, will resonate with fans in their own unique way, giving them something to relate to and connect with individually.
