Its really no secret here at Modern Mystery that we are totally in love with ‘Talking Through Tin Cans’ by The Morning Benders. The guys recently announced a co-headlining tour with The Submarines that will be starting in a matter of weeks.
If you haven’t checked out The Morning Benders live (or at all for that matter), we urge you to do so. The tour is pretty extensive and if you’ve only seen the band do their Puma instore set, then you are in for another side of The Morning Benders. Either way electric or acoustic, the band delievers the goods. They are astonishing live.
Here is a video we took from CMJ week when The Morning Benders performed at the Puma Instore in New York City. They played beautifully and made us love the record even more. Plus they took requests and played a cover of ‘Love Fool’.
This is a video of the band playing ‘Heavy Hearts’ which singer/guitarist Chris Chu said they hadn’t played since they recorded the song almost a year to the day.
