The Morning Benders are releasing a new EP entitled ‘Japan Echo’ through their website.
‘Japan Echo’ comprises of two original tracks from the band, as well as remixes by Star Slinger, Wild Nothing, RAC, Twin Sister, and Aislyn. 100% of the proceeds from the EP will be given to Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.
In conjunction with the EP announcement, The Morning Benders frontman Chris Chu released his own personal message:
“Last week we were scheduled to go to Tokyo to play our first show ever in Japan. It was going to be a very special trip for us, and for me in particular. I had always dreamt of going back to Japan to play music. Not many people know this, but I was actually born in Japan, and although I only lived there for a couple of years, I’ve always had a deep love for the country and its people. I cannot express how sad and helpless I’ve felt reading about everything that is happening there right now, and even though we couldn’t be there, we wanted to do everything we could to help. We love you Japan.”
