Real Friends have lined up a European tour for this December.

They’ll be joined by Knuckle Puck and With Confidence – and bassist Kyle Fasel says he can’t wait to hook up with his friends on the road.

He says: “It’s always comforting going on the road with people that you’re already friends with. We are also super stoked to get back to cities in Europe.

“It’s been a while since we’ve been outside the UK when going overseas. This tour is going to be a blast.”

The US outfit will release their second album The Home Inside My Head on May 27 and recently issued the tracks Colder Quicker and Scared To be Alone.

They’re about to embark on long run of tour dates, kicking off this weekend at the UK Slam Dunk festivals.
