Texan three-piece Not Ur Girlfrenz looked like they were having an absolute ball on stage with Bowling For Soup at the O2 Academy in Leeds earlier this month and, given that they’d also spent the Summer touring across the States as part of the Warped Tour, it would be fair to say that their 2018 turned out pretty awesome. We spoke to the band recently to find out some of their favourite things of the past twelve months.

8. Favourite Not Ur Girlfrenz Song of 2018
Liv: Either “Warped” because it brings back SO many memories of being on the Vans Warped Tour and it makes me excited for future adventures to come or “Somehow” because I really poured my heart and soul into the song and it means a lot to me but overall it really just depends on my mood.
Maren: “Friends or Memories”
Gigi: “No One Asked You Anyway”
9. Favourite Not Ur Girlfrenz Memory of 2018
Liv: My favorite memory of 2018 was meeting all of the bands and getting all the cameos in our “Warped” music video during Warped Tour. All the bands were all super nice and had great advice for us as a young band.
See how much fun Not Ur Girlfrenz had on “Warped”:
Maren: Getting to be a part of the final cross country Vans Warped Tour. We got to watch and meet a lot of bands that inspire us like Simple Plan and Waterparks! Sometimes we would look out into the crowd during a show and see some of our idols staring back at us. The whole Warped community is extremely accepting and supportive and we were so lucky and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it!
Gigi: I can’t choose between these two so i’m going to say them both! Finding out that we were going to the U.K, and crashing Simple Plan’s stage!
