We're happy to announce news of the forthcoming Real Estate album, Atlas out March 4.

Recorded over the summer and fall of 2013 with producer Tom Schick (Rufus Wainwright, Mavis Staples, Low), the ten-song album will be preceded by the release of the single "Talking Backwards," which you listen to below or via the band's website.

To commence the follow-up to their sophomore breakout, Days, founding members Martin Courtney (guitar/vocals), Matt Mondanile (guitar) and Alex Bleeker (bass/vocals) were joined by new full-time members Jackson Pollis (drums) and Matt Kallman (keyboard) and producer Schick in Chicago this past summer at Wilco's Chicago studio, The Loft.

The cover art of 'Atlas' features a detail taken from Alexander's Mural, an iconic North Jersey landmark created by artist Stefan Knapp that once hung on the side of Alexander's department store for over twenty years, not far from the band's hometown of Ridgewood, NJ.

Atlas is available to pre-order now on CD, standard and deluxe LP through Domino Mart and digitally via iTunes. All pre-orders will receive an instant mp3 download of "Talking Backwards." A Domino mart exclusive deluxe LP limited to 1000 features the album on heavyweight 180g maroon vinyl and a bonus 7" with two exclusive non-album songs.

Real Estate will launch their headlining North American tour on February 28 as part of the Noise Pop Festival and culminating in their biggest headline date in New York at Webster Hall on April 5.
