On Friday night, Tinley Park’s Real Friends held a “secret” listening party for a select group of fans in support of their forthcoming third full length, Composure. The evening event was the last of three listening party events held throughout the day across the Chicagoland area. In the modern industrial workspace of Chicago’s Rowboat Creative, the members of Real Friends interacted with fans, taking photos and making themselves available for conversation.

Following the premiere of Composure, Real Friends bassist Kyle Fasel connected with IE’s Jaime Black for an interview on his Dynasty Podcasts series. That interview, which can be heard in full via the embedded podcast player, finds Fasel delving into the motivation behind holding the multiple listening parties for the new record all in one day and the goal of facilitating personalized interactions with fans. The bassist also talks about why taking personal time between recordings and tours is so important for the well being of the individual band members, and how mental health factors heavily into the lyrics of Composure.
