Sunny Day Real Estate Reunites, Tours, Reissues

Sunny Day Real Estate
Text

Two months after we first reported the possibility of a Sunny Day Real Estate reunion, we have more faith than ever in the Twitter rumor mill. Maybe that's not exactly true, but this week the band announced that they are reconvening after a decade-long hiatus for a 20-date tour and reissues of Diary and LP2. 

In 1995, following the success of the band's debut album Diary, the group disbanded: Jeremy Enigk to pursue solo work, William Goldsmith and Nate Mendel to join up with Dave Grohl's then-new project, and Dan Hoerner to move to a farm. The band had a brief reunion sans Mendel at the end of the '90s, but it was ill-fated--the band broke up again just a few years later, after pushing two albums through Sub Pop and Time Bomb.
