Real Estate adds shows with The Shins

Real Estate is on tour now, with the focal point of the tour being the band’s first appearance at Coachella, this weekend and next. The band has also just added a trio of East Coast shows opening for The Shins, including Terminal 5 in New York.  Real Estate will also grace the main stage at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago as well as the annual Woodsist Fest in Big Sur, CA — the band will also stop by the Belly Up in Solana Beach and The Fonda in LA on their second West Coast trip of the year.

In addition to a slew of year-end accolades (including #9 album of the year at Pitchfork, #32 album of the year at Pazz & Jop, and other year-end nods from The Onion, Paste, Q, Uncut, NME, Stereogum, Gorilla Vs. Bear, American Songwriter & tons more) the band recently talked to ABC News, co-hosted Much Music’s The Wedge w/ Damian of Fucked Up, stopped by 120 Minutes to chat with Matt Pinfield and taped a Tiny Desk Concert at NPR’s DC offices.  Domino has also announced that the “Easy” single will see a US release on April 10 – you can pre-order it here.

Days was recorded over the course of five patient months in a remote New Paltz, NY barn-cum-studio with the help of Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen), is a coming of age moment for childhood friends Martin Courtney (Guitar and Vocals), Matt Mondanile (Guitar) and Alex Bleeker (Bass):  a gorgeous suite of guitar-pop songs.  Days is a testament to the fact that the sonic formula Real Estate developed and shared with their debut album (Real Estate, Woodsist 2009) heralded the arrival of a new, genuine and enduring group of voices in American independent music.  Days sees the band tighten and refine their brand of timeless, melodic and genuine music- consolidating the breezy sketches of their earlier work into considered, graceful pop songs
