Jeremy Enigk of both the Fire Theft and influential emo/post-hardcore pioneers Sunny Day Real Estate has set an October 17th, 2006 release date for his second solo album, World Waits. The album is the follow up Return of the Frog Quen which was released a decade ago. The album is due out through his own imprint Lewis Hollow Records and distributed through Sony/BMG.

Enigk co-produced the album with Josh Myers mainly in home studios. Many of the tracks were written in the 90s and Enigk describes the sound of the some of the tracks:

World Waits' takes off where 'Frog Queen' left off. But then the album evolves into a completely more mature thing as the new music slowly unfolds

He is planning a US tour in July to be followed by a stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 4th. A European tour will follow after that.

While his more recent project The Fire Theft who recently went on a break, the trio still consider themselves a band and presumably will be regrouping at some point in the future to produce new material.
