Real Friends and lead singer/frontman Dan Lambton have decided to mutually part ways after nearly a decade together as a band.
In a statement that went out on all of Real Friends and Dan's respective social media, the announcement was made Friday, February 14th 2020. Such a heartbreaking statement on Valentine's Day.
On Real Friends socials the statement read:
"To our fans and friends,
After 10 years together, we have mutually parted ways with Dan Lambton.
We have lived our dreams, toured the world, released three albums, and made countless memories together that we’ll never, ever forget.
What that future holds, we aren’t entirely sure of yet - but we are excited and optimistic. At the same time, we also wish our brother and friend Dan the best. He will continue writing with rationale., and live-streaming on Twitch.
This is not the end of Real Friends. We have simple turned the page to the next chapter.
Thank you for all your love and support."
With a statement from Dan on his respective socials reading something a bit similar:
"For the sake of brevity, I’ll get straight to the point. We have mutually decided that it is best for Real Friends to continue on without me. Over time, this band has changed, evolved, and reached a place where our paths are diverging, leading us to this collective conclusion.
Moving forward, I will continue to write music with rationale., livestream on Twitch, and, at the moment, it is unclear whether or not I will be able to pursue music in a full-time capacity.
Either way, I am grateful to have experienced all of the opportunities presented to us as Real Friends. We have been able to do so many amazing things and share many intimate moments with so many incredible people. For that, I am grateful.
Thank you for everything."
It's great to see that the band and Dan have left on mutually good terms and we can only wish Real Friends and Dan the best and eagerly wait in anticipation on how the band plans to move forward, and who will fit the big shoes of their new frontman.
