Sunny Day Real Estate played a warm-up show on Saturday, September 10 ahead of their reunion tour, which kicks off this week.
The show at the Spokane Club in Washington was their first performance in 12 years, with the lineup including Jeremy Enigk, Dan Hoerner, William Goldsmith and new bassist Chris Jordan.
The band opened the gig with “Seven,” and also played “Pillars,” “In Circles,” and 2014’s single “Lipton Witch,” before ending with “Days Were Golden.”
Sunny Day Real Estate is set to begin its reunion tour tomorrow (September 13) at Liberty Hall in Lawrence, Kansas, with dates throughout September, October and December. See ticket details here.
Sunny Day Real Estate was first together between 1992 and 1995, then from 1997 to 2001 and again from 2009 to 2011. They are best known for their debut album, 1994’s “Diary”, which is considered a landmark release. in the second wave of the emo genre.
The band’s third reunion ended acrimoniously, with a possible fifth studio album ultimately scrapped and Goldsmith claiming on his personal Facebook page that the record was “silenced, abandoned and buried in the darkest depths of the drawer at socks by David Grohl”.
Only one track from the sessions, “Lipton Witch”, was finally released on Record Store Day 2014 on a seven-inch split with Circa Survive.
