Real Friends is a pop punk band from Tinley Park, Illinois. The band has released six EPs and one studio album. They are currently signed to Fearless Records. Kyle Fasel and Dave Knox started the band in late 2010, later adding vocalist, Dan Lambton and drummer, Aaron Schuck. They recorded their debut EP, This Is Honesty, in the Spring of 2011. Following the release of the EP, the band began playing shows around the Midwest, but soon after decided to revamp their sound, as they weren't happy with the musical direction they were headed in. During the writing process of Everyone That Dragged You Here, Aaron Schuck decided to leave the band to pursue a career in race-car driving. His departure led to the addition of Brian Blake on drums and Eric Haines as the second guitarist.
