Double vinyl LP pressing. The Rising Tide is the fourth and final studio album by American Seattle-based indie-rock band Sunny Day Real Estate originally released in June, 2000. Sunny Day Real Estate was one of the early Midwest emo bands and helped establish the genre. In 1994, the band released their debut album Diary on Sub Pop Records to critical acclaim. However, shortly after releasing their second album LP2, the band broke up, with members Nate Mendel and William Goldsmith joining Foo Fighters and Jeremy Enigk embarking on a solo career. In 1997, they regrouped long enough to record two more studio albums and a live album but ultimately disbanded once again in 2001.
