Matt Mondanile leaves Real Estate to focus on Ducktails, replaced by Julian Lynch
Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile has announced that he’ll be leaving the band to focus solely on his other project Ducktails. His replacement will be the band’s old pal/collaborator Julian Lynch. Here’s the band’s statement:
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.
Check out the lists of Real Estate’s tour dates (none in NYC) and Ducktails’ tour dates (including a free Prospect Park show with Alvvays and Big Thief) below.
Real Estate are one of the many artists who contributed to the new Grateful Dead tribute album. Listen to their great take on “Here Comes Sunshine”:
