Morning Benders and Submarines to tour together in '09


Probably one of the most pleasant surprises for us this year was the emergence of The Morning Benders. This super cool band was the opener for We Are Scientists, The Kooks and Ra Ra Riot on dates throughout the land, (We saw them with the Kooks,) and never failed to impress. The band weds indie rock stylings of today with a bit of class and charm we aren't used to seeing in younger bands.

We now hear that this little band on the rise will be touring (co-headlining) with The Submarines - a most dynamic duo we have been dying to see live since we first saw their video for their Josh Forbes-directed video for Peace and Hate. (To us, the Submarines sound a bit like a cross between The Rosebuds and Georgie James - two bands we love!) This has all the making of a huge and very accessible tour for fans. Neither band is too big in their own right but each is hugely talented. (Check out their new single, "You Me and the Bourgeoisie" - it's the one from the new Apple iPhone ad. And it's pretty incredible.

Sum it all up and this is one tour you definitely are going to want to see. Mark our words.
