Real Estate's Matt Mondanile is leaving the band to focus on his other project Ducktails. He will be replaced by guitarist Julian Lynch. Real Estate will continue on their current Going Up the Country 2016 tour.
The band released a statement about Mondanile departure and their upcoming dates saying,
"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."
Ducktails is also set to play a variety of shows this summer. On June 23rd they are scheduled to play in Brooklyn, New York. From there, they will head to British Columbia and then Oregon before playing six shows in California.
