Real Estate just wrapped up a short East Coast tour which also found them playing their largest NYC show yet, at Terminal 5, and now have announced even more North American dates in April centered around the band’s first appearance at Coachella. 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.
