Sunny Day Real Estate NEW SONG

Unless you are hiding under a rock, you are well aware that Sunny Day Real Estate is on tour. Here is a great review of one of their shows from the Onion AV Club.

One of the most interesting things I learned from that article is that they did not play any songs from their most recent album, "The Rising Tide". Kind of shocking, honestly. I realize one of the purposes of this tour is to promote the reissues of their first two albums, but still, they haven't played a concert in 8 years, and they haven't played a show with the original lineup in 15 years. "The Rising Tide" is probably the least favorite of the four SDRE LPs for most fans, but even still, the album is terrific. It has it's flaws, but I would rank it as my #1 album of 2000, and probably in my top 10 albums of this decade.

Well, bigger news than no "Rising Tide" songs is that they have A NEW SONG!:
