Just Friends Signs to Pure Noise & Announce Video/Pre-Orders
Pure Noise Records has officially announced the signing of Just Friends to its roster! The 9-piece, funk punk collective is celebrating the announcement with a re-release of their 2018 album Nothing But Love, as well as a new music video for “Supersonic”. Fans can stream/download the album via Spotify & Apple Music and pre-order physical copies here (available March 15th).
On the making of Nothing But Love: “We set out to make something that encouraged people to believe in themselves,” vocalist Sam Kless explains. “Something that stood for embracing vulnerability, compassion and self-confidence. Something that people could dance to, and something we could show our parents. After three years of writing I truly believe we accomplished that goal. We just wanted to make everyone who ever believed in us proud.”
With excitement towards Just Friends’ future with Pure Noise Records, Kless shares, “It’s unreal. We still look around in awe and think ‘wow we are really here.’ Having people who invest not only in your band but you as people is a feeling I cannot describe. Jake and company have taught us so much and are helping us grow in ways I never thought we would be able to. We are beyond thankful they took a chance on us.”
Just Friends is made up of Sam Kless (vocals), Chris Palowitch (trombone & keys), Briana Goyos León (vocals), Avi Dey (trumpet & percussion), Brandon Downum (guitar), Matt Yankovich (guitar), Ryan Ellery (engineering & guitar), Ben Donlon (drums), and Kent Soliday (bass). Their musically diverse sound combines a unique range of punk, brass, hip hop, funk, and emo influences.
Just Friends has hit the road around the U.S. and internationally with bands like Mom Jeans., Oso Oso, Graduating Life, Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Kississippi, awakebutstillinbed, and more.
Nothing But Love is the follow-up to 2015’s Rock 2 the Rhythm, and is out now via Pure Noise Records.
