Julian Lynch replaces Matt Mondanile in Real Estate; Ducktails and Real Estate go on (separate) tours
Matt Mondanile of Ducktails

You know how these things go. You start a band with your high school buddies as an unintentional complement to your solo work, and pretty soon, it’s your solo work that’s compelled a move to Hollywood, where drug pushers and high-priced escorts spur an ironically positive spiral away from musical success and toward a celibate life dedicated to rehab promotion.

Somehow Matt Mondanile avoided this inevitability when Los Angeles recently (sort of) became his home via New York, and three years on, his bandmates in Real Estate have amicably accepted his expressed desire to focus on his work under the Ducktails moniker. Real Estate now consists of the other two pals from Ridgewood, NJ, Alex Beeker and Martin Courtney, plus a new one in Julian Lynch, plus Jackson Pollis and Matt Kallman on drums and keys, respectively.

Additionally, Real Estate have amended the tour in which they’re currently engaged with two California shows, and they intend to start recording their follow-up to 2014’s Atlas after the tour’s end. Mondanile and Ducktails are going on a tour of their own beginning the end of June. Check all relevant dates after the relevant words from Real Estate themselves:

Having previously announced a short run of shows in California and a show at Red Rocks Amphitheater with The National, Real Estate expand on this by adding two further California dates. This limited run of dates is a prelude to the recording of their next album, tentatively slated for early 2017.

These upcoming shows will be the first with new member and fellow scion of Ridgewood, NJ, guitarist Julian Lynch. Lynch takes the place vacated by the departing Matt Mondanile, who is focusing on his own Ducktails project, a musical endeavor that predates his involvement in Real Estate.

The band will commence recording their follow-up to Atlas this summer.
