Formed in 1992, Seattle

Sunny Day Real Estate was at first a three-member band, calling themselves "Empty Set", consisting of guitarist/vocalist Dan Hoerner, bassist Nate Mendel, and drummer William Goldsmith.  When they added lead singer Jeremy Enigk, the band became an incredibly well-rounded group of artists.   In true artist fashiion however, they were also strangely recluse when it came to publicity.  They released only one official publicity photo for the press and allowed only one interview as a band.

Following the release of their debut album in 1994, "Diary", Jeremy converted to Christianity.  Soon after they released "Sunny Day Real Estate" or known on Sub Pop as "LP2",  but usually called "The Pink Album"!  They broke up In 1995 after some internal conflicts.   Bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith soon joined the Foo Fighters

In 1997, Sunny Day Real Estate reunited without bassist Nate Mendel, who was eventually replaced by former Posies bassist Joe Skyward.  It the fall of 1998, they release "How It Feels To Be Something On" featuring some incredible tracks including Pillars and The Prophet.   A year later they released "Live" followed by their first album that was not released on Sub Pop.  Instead it was on Time Bomb...which actually proved to be a bomb.  They endured poor distribution, a lack of a tour support and management trouble - and again called it quits in 2001.
