Published Apr 15, 2008After a name change and several delays, Interpol/Swervedriver offshoot, Magnetic Morning, is finally ready to drop its self-titled debut EP this Thursday, April 19. The duo composed of Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino and head Swervie Adam Franklin originally intended to release the five-track EP under the name Setting Suns, but a cease-and-desist by a NY band of the same name forced the two to drop their original moniker.
Fogarino and Franklin formed the "super duo back in early 2006 after being introduced by a mutual friend and have since began performing a series of live shows in the U.S and generating that ever-precious buzz. After entering the studio to record their debut, the group initially intended to release the EP back in February and then March before finally settling on this April 19 date.
And while the legal woes with "an already existing entity with a name too close for comfort" could be partly responsible for the delay, perhaps Fogarino and Franklin just wanted to drop their noise on the same day as the now-international Record Store Day, also taking place on April 19. In fact, Fogarino is scheduled to play a DJ set at retailer Other Music in New York as part of the joint Record Store Day/Magnetic Morning celebrations. Hmm, the coincidence here seems a little suspicious.
