Matt Mondanile is leaving Real Estate. The guitarist has been part of the New Jersey band since their formation in 2009 but has decided to part ways with the collective to focus on Ducktails, his solo project that he started before joining the band. Solo artist, Julian Lynch will take his place.

Here's a statement from the band: "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."
