The Sunny Day Real Estate Reunion Didn't Go Well

Posted by - 11:46 AM on 03/14/13
A new interview with Nate Mendel (Sunny Day Real Estate, Foo Fighters) kind of closes the door on any more Sunny Day Real Estate music.
We're not doing anything. We had an 'interesting' reunion experience a couple of years ago where we got together out of the blue and patched up old relationships and differences and just wanted to do some reunion shows. It turned out great and it was a lot of fun and we sort of accidentally wrote a song and we were like, 'OK, why don't we try to do a record?' We spent a lot of time writing an album's worth of songs and then went to record it in Los Angeles - all of the writing had been done up in the North West where most of the guys are located - and the recording process just... It just fell apart. So that was probably the end of that band - if we couldn't make any new music, what's the point?

One band I never fell into. Don't think I've ever even heard them just heard of them.

What kinda sound they have? Suggestions for a song or two!

they basically were the originators of the emo genre....they progressed through the years but check out in circles for their early stuff and pillars for their more progressive stuff

Glad I caught their reunion tour in DC a couple years ago. First time seeing The Jealous Sound and Sunny Day Real Estate. What a great show.

New music would be cool but I'd rather them just call it a day than carry on when they aren't truly invested in it.

I was there. So great.

Listen to "The Rising Tide" first then move on to "How It Feels To Be Something On"

Songs like "Every Shining Time You Arrive" "100 Million" and "Days Were Golden" are freaking awesome
