Real Friends are celebrating Halloween a couple of days ahead of time with their brand new music video. On Monday (Oct. 29), the Illinois-founded band unleashed the three-and-a-half-minute clip for their latest single, “Me First.” The video finds the five-piece trying to evade a beautiful serial killer who just so happens to be their boss. Sadly, the video concludes with things not turning out in the guys’ favor.
The video begins with the antagonist, a beautiful blonde, sitting in her mansion minding her own business. Once the music kicks in, the blonde turns from a subdued rich person to someone with a sinister secret behind her smile. In between the colored images of the blonde going about her house, are black-and-white shots of her in what looks to be a basement, with a cleaver in hand.
Unfortunately for the guys in the band, they work for the serial killer and have become her next victims. The rest of the clip follows the killer as she hunts down each of them and beheads them in her basement of secrets.
“Have you ever wanted to see our heads cut off?” asks bassist Kyle Fasel. “Well, look no further.”
Watch the complete music video for “Me First” above.
“Me First” is featured on Real Friends’ recently released record, Composure. The record was released back in July via Fearless Records.
Composure is the follow-up to band’s 2016 release, The Home Inside My Head.
In support of Composure‘s release, Real Friends previously confirmed plans to hit the road with Boston Manor throughout the end of October and into November. Their upcoming tour will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Irenic in San Diego and conclude almost a month alter on Nov. 25 at the House of Blues in Chicago.
