Real Estate confirm UK & European tour dates for June

Fifth album The Main Thing out Feb 28th

Hear new single “Paper Cup” ft Sylvan Esso here


Last week Real Estate announced their fifth album The Main Thing – due February 28th – alongside new single “Paper Cup”. “Paper Cup” features Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Meath on vocals and marks the first time Real Estate have ever brought in special guests; the single also came with a great video featuring a giant animatronic squirrel.

Watch the video for “Paper Cup” here.

Now, the band are pleased to confirm UK and European tour dates for June including London’s Roundhouse.

The Main Thing delivers the band’s most inspired and self-aware set of songs to date, created over the course of a year at upstate New York’s Marcata Sound with producer Kevin McMahon (who engineered 2011’s Days). Across the 13 interrogative tracks – as full of depth, strangeness, and contradictions as they are lifting hooks – the band balances existential, environmental, and political anxieties with fatherly sentiments, self-satirizing lyrics, forever-lively guitar lines, and shimmering strings.

The band underwent a collaborative evolution for this album, which saw each member experimenting in new roles, and alongside Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Meath, Matt Barrick of The Walkmen, Aaron Johnston of Brazilian Girls and a string quartet all play on the record.

The Main Thing is available to pre-order on deluxe double LP (tip-on gatefold jacket with Bjorn Copeland’s collage piece mounted on the front cover, gold-coloured vinyl), LP, CD and digitally. Pre-order: Dom Mart | Digital
