Originally formed in Seattle in 1992, Sunny Day Real
Estate featured Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith
(drums), Dan Hoerner (guitar,vocals) and Jeremy Enigk
(vocals, guitar). Following the completion of a US Tour to
support Diary, the band’s debut album, the group headed
back into the studio with Wood to record the follow-up.
But during the recording sessions, internal tensions
splintered Sunny Day Real Estate, resulting in a sudden
break-up and the finished album being turned in to Sub
Pop without a title or artwork. LP2 was released in
November 1995, by which time both Goldsmith and
Mendel had joined Foo Fighters and Enigk had begun a
solo career. Sub Pop Records will re-issue both Diary and
the band’s second full-length album, commonly known
as LP2 (or “The Pink Album” for its entirely pink cover).
Both re-mastered albums will include rare bonus tracks
as well as newly written liner notes.
