The Morning Benders Sign to Rough Trade, Announce US Tour Dates



Decent selling but generally unheralded, we are happy to announce that the extremely young looking in their new press photo Morning Benders have signed to Rough Trade for the release of their new album, Big Echo, to be released in March. The album was recorded by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear and MB's front man Chris Chu. The Benders will be out on the road in early spring headlining, having just supported both Grizzly Bear and Girls, two groups with whom they've got a sonic sisterhood happening. Look out for Big Echo, it's gonna be a strong one. Can't wait to share more soon. Check the dates after the jump to see if their dream pop is going to take over your town for a night or a season.
