Real Friends have truly got into the Halloween spirit (yes guys!) with the video for their latest single Mess. The track is taken from the band’s latest album The Home Inside My Head.
The accompanying video pays tribute to Donnie Darko and Freaks and Geeks while also showing a typical American Halloween evening!
Bassist Kyle Fasel says; “We are stoked to show everyone our music video for ‘Mess’. The coolest part was having our fans involved in the filming of the video. We had about one hundred extras in the video over the course of two days. All of those extras were our fans. If I was in one of my favourite bands’ music videos I would be super stoked. So it’s awesome to make our fans feel that.”
Vocalist Dan Lambton adds; “We had wanted to work with Kyle Thrash for a very long time. We met him a few years ago while we were out with Modern Baseball and saw him grow as a director through all of their music videos along with Neck Deep and State Champs among many others. Kyle brought a new vision to our whole perspective on videography. We never had extras, an intricate set, or as detailed of a story line before. We had a lot of kids from the Philly area come out and give their time to be in the video and it was awesome getting to connect to fans in a different light. I’m also very glad I didn’t fall off the bike while we were shooting.”
