An incredibly influential Emo band from Seattle, Washington. Sunny Day Real Estate was formed in 1992 by guitarist Dan Horner and bassist Nate Mendel, who were shortly after joined by drummer William Goldsmith, at the time, the band was known as "Empty Set". Two name changes and a self released single later, rhythm guitarist Jeremy Enigk joined the band, and eventually took Horner's place as the lead vocalist. In 1994, the band released their debut album Diary on Sup Pop Records to much critical acclaim, what followed was a tour that established the band's reputation as a rather enigmatic group that would rarely grant interviews and would refuse to play shows for unexplained reasons.After touring their debut, the band got back into the studio to record their sophomore effort. It was around this time that Enigk became a born again Christian. The brief sessions for the album were incredibly tense, and in early 1995, the group disbanded. Some fans believe that Enigk's newfound Christianity played a roll in the dissolution of the band, although Enigk and the rest of the band deny this. In November of that year, Sub Pop would release the bands second album, titled simply ''Sunny Day Real Estate'', referred to fans of the band as either "LP2" or "The Pink Album". Following the breakup, Enigk pursued a solo carer, Horner moved out to a farm in rural Washington, and the rhythm section of the band went on to join Dave Grohl's band (though Goldsmith eventually left as Dave Grohl got dissatisfied with his drumming).In 1997, Sub Pop approached Eingk and Horner about the possibility of releasing a "rarities" compilation of the band's material. The band decided to regroup, and record a few songs. From their, the band, minus Mendel, decided to reform and record a new album. The third release from the band, titled How It Feels To Be Something On featured the group a more polished and restrained sound. Following the release of a Live Album, the band left Sub Pop and decided to look for a new label. After a long, tumultuous period of looking to get signed, indie label Time Bomb Recordings decided to sign the band. In 2000, the band released The Rising Tide, and prepared to embark on a tour in Europe. However, on the eve of the tour, the label pulled funding, as it had fallen into bankruptcy. Embittered by the experience, the band decided to break up again. Horner resumed his life on the farm, while Enigk and Goldsmith formed a band called "The Fire Theft".In 2009, the band has reunited with the lineup that recorded Diary in order to play several live shows and tour. Currently, however, the band remains inactive according to Mendel.
