Real Estate are "getting closer and closer to finishing work on [their] third album," they announced this afternoon in a short blog post. That bit of good news was accompanied by the short teaser trailer you see above, which shows the band fiddling around in a studio, plus about eight seconds of new music. And — surprise, surprise — Real Estate still sound exactly like the Real Estate we last heard on their 2011 LP Days: shimmering guitars that move at the pace of wake rolling across a lake.
The five-piece also announced a short October tour, where they will road test their new material: "I would be very surprised if we did not play a number of new songs at these upcoming shows," says the news post.

October 18 – Dallas, TX @ Index Festival
