You Know People I Know People

Morning State signed to a label last fall and recorded You Know People I Know People. The band then headed to the CMJ Music Marathon for several performances, including a VIP late night party with hometown heroes Black Kids, and Peter and Bjorn (of PB & J, of course!). Shortly after returning home, the band learned that its label had collapsed and was seeking money for the master rights to the recordings. With this, the band quickly terminated its ties with the label and decided to re-record the album with close friend Asa Leffer (The Whigs, Dark Meat, The Pendletons) at DARC in Athens, GA. The album was re-recorded in about 11 days.

Several outlets have gotten behind the album in the past month including E! News but don't let that turn you away. Morning State are a really frickin' good band. You can check out the review I did on First Coast HERE. (pardon the typos)

Following sets in packed out rooms in New York, Chicago, and throughout the southeast, the band is taking a short rest. More tour dates are expected to be added soon and hopefully Florida will be included. Then again, Atlanta isn't that far away and there's always Sweet Water beer to be had and Little Five Points!

Anyway, the band has released another song from the re-recorded album You Know People I Know People. Check it out below.
