Sunny Day Real Estate Reform

Sub Pop to reissue Diary & LP2 on September 15

Sunny Day Real Estate
Following a more than 10 year hiatus, all four original members of pioneering Seattle rock band Sunny Day Real Estate will regroup for a 20-date U.S. tour starting September 17, 2009. In addition to touring, Sub Pop Records will re-issue both Diary (check it out below) and the band's second full-length album, commonly known as LP2 (or The Pink Album depending on who you talk to). Both re-mastered albums will include rare bonus tracks as well as newly written liner notes and will be released on both CD and LP September 15, 2009, just prior to the start of the tour.

Originally formed in Seattle in 1992, Sunny Day Real Estate featured Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), Dan Hoerner (guitar, vocals) and Jeremy Enigk (vocals, guitar). Diary, the band's first full-length album, was released in 1994 and was recorded at Chicago's Idful Studios with producer Brad Wood and released to critical acclaim. Following the completion of a U.S. Tour to support the debut release, the group headed back into the studio with Wood to record the follow-up.

But during the recording sessions, internal tensions splintered Sunny Day Real Estate, resulting in a sudden break-up and the finished album being turned in to Sub Pop without a title or artwork. LP2 was released in November 1995, by which time both Goldsmith and Mendel had joined Foo Fighters and Enigk had begun a solo career. Without Mendel, Sunny Day Real Estate reunited in 1997 and released two more studio albums (the 1998's How It Feels to Be Something On and 2000's The Rising Tide on Time Bomb) before disbanding again in 2001.
