Bassist Nate Mendel has returned to play with Sunny Day Real Estate, after playing with the Foo Fighters. The reunion will be followed by a tour scheduled for this fall.
Sunny Day Real Estate has split and re-formed two times already (once in 1998, reuniting without Mendel, and then again in 2001).
Mendel’s comments on the reunion: “I wasn’t around for the second version of the band that recorded the third and fourth albums. So I’ve always had a feeling of unfinished business. We left behind all these weird and beautiful songs, and they’ve stuck with me all this time. I’m really happy that we get a chance to play them together again.”
