The POZ sponsored Real Friends fall tour with Mixtapes, Forever Came Calling, and Pentimento kicked off last week, and we’re stoked to have all four bands together for a new Playlist feature. Check out the tour routing here and the Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!

A few weeks ago I was at a party and I overheard some kids name dropping a bunch of random that supposedly made awesome playlists. I hope this playlist will make me look cool and spark more really awkward conversations in my friend Mike’s basement.
Here are ten songs accompanied by semi-relevant commentary:
Knuckle Puck - No Good
A few of my best friends put out an incredible EP a few months ago and you should probably check it out.
The Starting Line - Birds
I feel like TSL never really got the credit they deserve. In my opinion they’re the best band to come out of the early 2000s era and if you disagree I will gladly say something really mean about you on the Internet.
City and Colour - Commentators
Sometimes there are a few people on the web that look for any excuse to talk shit on bands for no reason. Stay behind your computer screens, nerds.
Owen - I Got High
If you haven’t listened to the new Owen album…… you are fucking up. What are you waiting for?
Citizen - Sick and Impatient
I really shouldn’t have to tell you how awesome this band is, so just hit play and find out for yourself.
The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die - Fightboat
What band do you know has like twenty members and isn’t Arcade Fire? That’s what I thought. TWIABP sure as hell know how to make use of all the instrumentation at their fingertips.
You Blew It! - Medal of Honor
I’ve been listening to “Grow Up, Dude” since around the beginning of the year and it is flawless from front to back. I will curbstomp myself if I don’t get to see this band at FEST.
Senses Fail - The Path
Dude Senses Fail is punk as fuck, bro. One time I saw Buddy Nielsen sacrifice a goat in front of an elementary school.
Fall Out Boy - I Slept With Someone In Fall Out Boy And All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me
I saw FOB twice since their reunion (one of them being at Riot Fest) and something about this song live was just so fucking spot on.
Circa Survive - Mandala
There are no words that can accurately describe how this band is the shit, but hopefully you’ll get the point.
Hey there people, we are about to head out on a full U.S. tour with Real Friends, Forever Came Calling and Pentimento. Here’s a taste of some things we listen to in the van! We’re gonna do full albums this time insteadof just one song!
Paramore – Ain’t It Fun
The new record is literally perfect, in every way. Very smart song writing and, I love how they have finally pushed her vocals to the front of everything.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist
I cannot listen to just one song on this record. Once I put it on I have to listen to the whole thing. Such an outstanding record.
Cindi Lauper – Money Changes Everything
I am a huge pop music fan in general and I think that she is such a great singer and awesome person.
