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.
