That show has been rescheduled for May 3, with tickets purchased for the original gig remaining valid. As Spinner reported, the post-grunge, pre-emo quartet reformed in 2009 after a near 15-year hiatus, not including a partial 1998 comeback, when bassist Nate Mendel chose to carry on working with Foo Fighters.
This is not the first time the Seattle band have had to let down UK fans, as Mendel wearily acknowledged in a press statement. He said, "Yet again Sunny Day Real Estate is compelled to postpone a trip to Europe. "
Mendel continued, "Ordinarily, this would be due to a failure of initiative on our part; we've corrected this shortcoming, only to have an explosive act of God intervene this time. Thankfully we've been able to reschedule quickly and we look forward to playing the UK in May."
In 2000, the band hoped to tour Europe, but their record label Time Bomb Recordings went bust. Last year, all four original members -- Jeremy Enigk, William Goldsmith, Dan Hoerner and Mendel -- regrouped for a 20-date US tour to promote reissues of early Sub Pop albums 'Diary' and 'LP2.'
