As if fans weren’t excited enough about Sunny Day Real Estate reuniting, reissuing two albums (1994’s Diary and 1995’s LP2) and touring (even playing their first-ever show in the U.K.), there are now reports that the band may be recording a new album.
This afternoon, Marco Williams—a radio DJ at KEXP 90.3—tweeted, “Great news today. Just got an email from Nate from Sunny Day Real Estate/Foo Fighters… SDRE is recording A NEW RECORD IN MAY!!”
Talk of a new album began after the band performed a new song during their reunion tour, so Williams’ declaration adds more validity to those rumors. If this new album comes to fruition, it will be the band’s first release of new material since 2000.
