Illinois pop-punk outfit Real Friends have announced their ‘More Acoustic Songs‘ EP, featuring acoustic versions of ‘Summer‘, ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore‘, ‘Late Nights In My Car‘ (feat. This Wild Life’s Kevin Jordan), and a cover of The Starting Line’sIsland‘.

Bass player Kyle Fasel says;

We are stoked to showcase our songs in acoustic form. The main reason we did this was for personal taste. We all have connected with acoustic music in the past and currently. It’s also an added bonus to highlight these versions of our songs to our fans. It shows our songs in another light that we are very excited about sharing.

An exclusive vinyl picture disc release of the EP will be available on April 18th as part of Record Store Day (limited to 2000 copies) at participating Record Store Day locations worldwide.

Vocalist Dan Lambton adds;

I am extremely excited that Real Friends is being included in this year’s Record Store Day. RSD gives people a reason to leave the comfort of their homes and the ease of online shopping in order to have an actual experience when buying new music. It can introduce younger listeners to great record stores in their areas that they might not otherwise find if they were to strictly do their record shopping online. To be a part of something that is continually providing exciting releases to highlight and celebrate vinyl is very humbling.
