Sunny Day Real Estate Releases New Song with Circa Survive, Bands First Song In 14 Years, Listen Here (VIDEO)
Sunny Day Real Estate fans are getting at least one more chance to hear new music from the popular 90's band. They partnered with band Circa Survive to split a 7″ for Record Store Day. Their song, "Lipton Witch," is the first song released by the band since their album The Rising Tide that released in 2000.
Circa Survive's Brendan Ekstrom explains how the song ended up getting on the 7" sharing, "I went to see a few of the Sunny Day Real Estate shows when they toured in 2009 and I knew they'd written and recorded at least one song during that time. I got Jeremy Enigk's info from a mutual friend and emailed him asking if they had anything planned with the track. I knew they were on a hiatus and I hated the idea of that song never being released. Jeremy spoke with the other guys who all seemed interested to do the split I had I proposed. We had a B-side we'd been sitting on that had a mellower vibe which seemed to balance their more rocking song in a way that another upbeat jam might not have. I couldn't be more happy that this is happening. I honestly think this one of the best songs Sunny Day has ever written and I'm really happy that fans are going to get to hear it."
Circa Survive song on the split is called 'Bad Heart.' The song was recorded after the release of their Violent Waves album. The pressing was limited to 2,400 copies on burgundy vinyl, with only 100 copies available on clear vinyl. The artwork is by Chris Thompson, who did the art for Diary and How It Feels to Be Something On.
In 1994 and 1995, Sunny Day Real Estate released Diary and LP2. They broke up during the making of LP2, with frontman Jeremy Enigk embarking on a solo career and bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith joining Dave Grohl's band Foo Fighters. In 1997, the band reunited (without Mendel), and released How It Feels to Be Something On in 1998 and The Rising Tide in 2000. The guys got back together in 2009 and were working on new music but nothing ever materialized until this year with the 7".
