Sunny Day Real Estate last played a show in 2010. The reunion will feature original frontman Jeremy Enigk, guitarist Dan Hoerner and drummer William Goldsmith. Bassist Nate Mendel, who went on to join Foo Fighters, won’t be taking part.

Goldsmith was also a member of Foo Fighters, but left the band acrimoniously after his drum parts for 1997’s The Colour & the Shape were re-recorded by Dave Grohl. His departure led to Taylor Hawkins joining the Foos.
