Real Friends are going to reschedule their upcoming UK tour for 2017

For those who were excited to see this band play by the end of the year, you might need to put that on hold. The band will be rescheduling their UK/Europe dates for the first half of 2017 and they will be announced within the coming weeks.

The reason for this rescheduling is down to the band feeling that this tour is a ‘wrong place, wrong time’ due to the struggles that are outlined in the bands statement. In the statement, Dan Lambton talks about his struggles with anxiety and mental health, as well as his battle with sobriety during this current tour.

You can read the statement by clicking HERE. We here at Musicology wish nothing but well wishes towards Dan and the rest of the band. Mental illness is a serious issue and it is nothing to be ashamed of and should be talked about.

Of Mice & Men and more feature on Don’t Fret Club!

If you’re like a lot of people who suffer from some form of mental illness, a great outlet to help with that is anything to do with music. Over at Don’t Fret Club, they have released a series of mini-podcasts featuring some of your favourite artists Of Mice & Men talking about ‘The First Step’, Happy Accidents talking about social anxiety and Slowcoaches who talk about positive friendships.
