Nate Mendel back with Sunny Day Real Estate

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.”

You can check out their Myspace page for current songs, they have not posted tour dates yet.
