Sunny Day Real Estate lead singer Jeremy Enigk has been fairly quiet the the past six years. The last we heard from him was in 2009, when he released his third solo album, OK Bear, and also fronted a reunion tour with SDRE. Despite hope of a new Sunny Day record, the reformation was short lived after the shows wrapped up, leaving fans with only a previously unreleased track called “Lipton Witch”, which surfaced last year on a split single for Record Store Day with Circa Survive.
Enigk took to his Facebook page in 2013 to let fans know that he was without management or a label and promised to update when circumstances had changed, but has been relatively silent since. Now, the enigmatic frontman is finally reemerging for a string of solo dates this spring. Enigk’s acoustic tour will kick off at The Irenic in San Diego before zig-zagging across the country and ending in Chicago. Consult the full schedule below.
Enigk isn’t the only Sunny Day member to focus on their solo career this year. Bassist Nate Mendel, also of Foo Fighters, will release his first solo effort under his new moniker Lieutenant. Enigk, incidentally, appears on that effort.
