The Morning Benders

As anyone who has been reading the site for the last few weeks knows, tomorrow, Noise Pop 2009 begins. And yes, we’re excited. However, there is another reason to celebrate — tomorrow is also the official release date of The Morning Benders’ latest EP, Grain of Salt. Featuring the title track (a personal favorite of mine), the EP also contains three previously unreleased B-sides which showcase another side of the band not heard on their full-length — one of which you can check out below!

If somehow you’ve managed to not check these guys out live – you are missing out. Fortunately for you, they’ve got a load of tour dates ahead of them in the coming weeks (see their myspace). The most notable being their Noise Pop show co-headling with The Submarines at Slim’s on Friday and, of course, a performance at our very own Bay Area Takeover Day Party at South by Southwest on March 19th.

Friday’s show also features local favorites The Mumlers and Rademacher. Tickets are still available and can be purchased without a fee from Aquarius Records. The show starts at 8pm and is all ages.
