Here comes the sun.
Long-forgotten (never forgotten) ’90s alternative torchbearers Sunny Day Real Estate will return this fall with all four original members for the first time since 1998. The Seattle rock band will reunite for a 20-date North American tour launching in Vancouver on September 17 and playing Denver a few nights later.
In honor of the reunion, Sub Pop will reissue the band’s debut, “Diary,” as well as “LP2,” the 1995 follow-up most widely referred to as “the pink album.” Sunny Day ranks among Sub Pop’s most influential artists, often credited with pioneering a raw form of emo years before the genre exploded in the early ’00s.
Both albums will be released on CD and vinyl September 15.
Sunny Day will play the Ogden Theatre on September 21. Tickets, $25, go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. Tickets will be available via Ticketmaster.
