Sunny Day Real Estate reunion scheduled

After months of rumors, it's finally been confirmed that there will be a Sunny Day Real Estate reunion. Hailed or hated, depending on how you look at it, for being one of the originators of the emo genre, the Seattle band who found some minor popularity in the '90's, have confirmed a new 20-date fall reunion tour. The band who split in 1995, will see the groups original lineup, frontman Jeremy Enigk, bassist Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters), drummer William Goldsmith, and guitarist Dan Hoerner together again. There was a brief reunion without Mendel in 1997, that saw the band record two more albums before parting again in 2001. Meanwhile frontman Jeremy Enigk, produced several solo efforts since the breakup in '95, most of which focused on Christian related themes.
Sub Pop, Sunny Day Real Estate's former label, also has announced plans to reissue the band's first two records, 1994's Diary and 1995's LP2, on September 15. The reissues will feature remastered audio, rare bonus tracks, and newly written liner notes.
