On May 6, 2008, Californian quartet the morning benders will release its debut album talking through tin cans on +1 Records. These San Francisco popsters have benefited greatly from attentive music bloggers and local radio support in the Bay Area and opening gigs for such buzz magnets as White Rabbits, Yeasayer, MGMT and Yo La Tengo, and will now garner their own well-earned attention at the Noise Pop festival in San Francisco in February and SXSW in March.
If you can’t handle waiting until May to get your paws on the LP, keep your peepers out for a limited edition single of “waiting for war” releasing March 11th, 2008 through +1 Records. And of course, here too, at the band’s official MySpace page.
Upcoming US Shows:
Feb 7th Los Angeles @ The Troubador w/ The Kooks – SOLD OUT
Feb 8th Los Angeles @ The Echo w/ The Kooks – SOLD OUT
Feb 25th Costa Mesa @ Detroit Bar w/ We Barbarians
Feb 28th San Francisco Noise Pop 2008 @ The Independent w/ Kelley Stoltz & Grand Archives
