Tomorrow, they kick off their US headlining tour in Fresno, CA. Following their headlining tour, which runs through mid-October, they will support The Story So Far on a run of tour dates through November. For a full list of tour dates, please see below.

Just Friends is made up of Sam Kless (vocals), Brianda Goyos León (vocals), Avi Dey (trumpet), Chris Palowitch (trombone, keys), Brandon Downum (guitar), Matt Yankovich (guitar), Kevin Prochnow (bass), Ben Donlon (drums), Eric Butler (trombone, vocals), Ryan Ellery (audio engineering, live sound, guitar), and occasionally Bart Thompson (bass) and Kent Soliday (guitar). Their musically diverse sound combines a unique range of punk, brass, hip hop, funk, and emo influences.

At the core of Just Friends is the idea of community. Although many of the group’s members, including Kless, were in other local groups over the years, they began writing under their current moniker in 2013, originally reconvening during the summers when they’d come home from their respective colleges. In 2015, they released their debut collection, Rock 2 the Rhythm, followed by their sophomore effort, Nothing But Love, in 2018. Following the release, after of a slew of smash hit live performances supporting fellow Bay Area rockers Mom Jeans, the group signed to Pure Noise Records in early 2019 and released the music video for “Supersonic”.

This past summer, the band toured on the 2019 Sad Summer Festival alongside the likes of The Wonder Years, The Maine, Mayday Parade, and more. They have also toured with bands like Mom Jeans., Oso Oso, Graduating Life, Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Kississippi, awakebutstillinbed, and more.
