Finally a Sunny Day

The weather here in New England has been as bad as it gets. It's rained for almost two weeks straight with seemingly no end in sight and the effects can be seen everywhere. People are feeling depression set in, the streets have been empty, and the parks are dirty mud pits. Regardless, there is some news that will brighten the day (at least for fans of old school 90s emo music): Sunny Day Real Estate have announced that they will embark on a reunion tour with their original lineup; you know, the one responsible for creating the seminal 1994 record, Diary. To help celebrate, Sub Pop will also be reissuing re-mastered, bonus-tracked copies of Diary and LP2 on 9/15. Both will also include new liner notes. This might not be the best news in the world but it's certainly got me excited. I guess it is ironic being cheered up by emo music. Hopefully, there will be a sunny day here before the band comes to town. Dates below along with some videos of the band from the early 90s including the music videos for "Seven" and "In Circles", the first two songs on Diary. The songs have since become classics and were instrumental in the development of emo music. Also posted, a live version of "Seven" performed on the short lived Jon Stewart Show on Mtv as well as their perform of the song on 120 Minutes on the same network.
