Label: Hopeless Real Friends make a major leap towards a space of serenity and confidence on their appropriately titled third full-length album, Composure. The Tinley Park, IL quintet perfect their patented one-two punch of punk and pop, while penning their most personal tunes to date. Musically, they built on this incredible foundation by pushing themselves as writers first and foremost. Despite harnessing instant chemistry with Green, the process presented a myriad of challenges as Dan’s bipolar disorder worsened. The vocalist openly shared his journey and struggles on social media, engendering empathy and eliciting similar stories from the fans. It strengthened the Real Friends community in the process and set the stage for Composure. Each word immediately connects as the music reflects a frenetic and fiery feeling. In the end, Real Friends have certainly come full circle, found their composure, and remain ready for their brightest chapter yet.
