Sunny Day Real Estate reunited for a tour once again in 2009, and it was reported that they were working on new material. However, Mendel said the recordings "fell apart". Now, the band has big news: They're releasing a new song on Record Store Day (April 19).
The release is a split with Circa Survive and features exclusive tracks from both bands. SDRE's song is called "Lipton Witch"; it's their first new song since The Rising Tide was released in 2000.
Circa Survive's track is called "Bad Heart", recorded after the release of the band's last album, 2012's Violent Waves. The artwork (above) is by Chris Thompson, who did the art for Diaryand How It Feels to Be Something On.
It's a limited pressing, with 2,400 coming out on burgundy vinyl and 100 on clear vinyl.
