REAL FRIENDS Drops Full Band Version of Single "Teeth"

Playing things a bit differently with their writing and recording style, Real Friends have unveiled a full band version of their recently released emotional ballad “Teeth” today.


“The full band version of ‘Teeth’ is different for us. We’ve always turned full band songs into acoustic versions,” shares bassist Kyle Fasel. “It was fun to do the opposite with ‘Teeth.’ It brings out more aggression that fits the lyrical content perfectly. I’m so stoked for fans to hear this.”


Vocalist Cody Muraro continues, sharing “Teeth is a very personal song for me. It touches on some of the years leading up to just before I joined Real Friends. I had gone through some of the most challenging years of my life. After sharing some of my experiences with the group and Andrew Wade, Andrew said, ‘ Ok, brutal, now let’s turn that into a song.’ ”

“Teeth” is pulled from the band’s forthcoming EP Torn In Two, due out next September 17, 2021 via Pure Noise Records. The EP was produced by Andrew Wade, who has worked on albums for punk bands A Day to Remember and Neck Deep, as well as Mike Green, who has co-written and produced on projects for Sum 41, New Found Glory, and The Aces. This new EP incorporates a recurring motif of the torn-ness and separation we have recently experienced in our everyday lives, as Cody elaborates: “I really liked how we were able to incorporate the Torn In Two theme throughout. The album artwork being people separated. The 5 main songs on one side and five alternates on the other. I think the past year has left a lot of us feeling torn, scrambling to reconnect with a sense of familiarity.”


Intended to showcase the band’s evolution into a new period of music, Torn In Two also carries the hope that Real Friends can use their music as a bridge to their listeners. To Real Friends fans, Cody shares, “I feel music and these songs bring things back together for me. I hope these songs can make you feel connected in just the same way.”


Real Friends will be busy this fall, supporting State Champs on the forthcoming Pure Noise Tour along with labelmates Four Year Strong, Just Friends and Bearings. The 24-city tour kicks off on September 14th at Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville, TN making stops across the U.S. in Detroit, San Antonio, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston and more before wrapping up in New York, NY at Irving Plaza on October 22nd.

Additional shows include a return to their hometown of Chicago, IL on September 11 at Bottom Lounge and two headline performances with support from labelmates Just Friends and Bearings in Columbus, OH on September 16 and Jacksonville, FL on September 23.
