Album Notes
Ben Hubbird and Casey Jarman met, through the miracle of the internet, in 1997. Both were high school students at the time. In 1998 they heard the Refused’s The Shape of Punk to Come and promptly formed a hardcore band. That band, The Keating Five, played a handful of rawkus shows in Eugene, Oregon’s basements and co-operative houses.

During this time, Ben and Casey found that they shared a love of Elvis Costello and the Kinks, as well as mid-nineties Chicago area groups like Braid and the Promise Ring. When the Keating Five split in 2000, Ben and Casey wanted to stick together (you know, for the kids). The Morals were born. Performing often as a duo, and occasionally with drummers (including Eric "Tractor Operator" Jensen), the Morals cut their teeth on the now legendary "Sad Bastard Night" singer-songwriter showcases that bonded them tightly with the burgeoning Eugene, Oregon music scene, playing with diverse musical minds that included Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox Through Water), Martha Mosqueda (Kiki), and Mike Barnhill (Self Run Will).

The Morals have self-released two home recorded EP’s, Jesus Was a Soul Man and If You Want to Find True Love, You Must Learn to Hold Your Tongue. The Warming Light of Dawn is their first full-length release, and the first Morals recordings to incorporate any sort of band, and by far the most produced work they have ever done.

With the Warming Light of Dawn, the Morals have attempted to both retain the tight harmonies and honest songwriting of their work as a two piece and rock out a lot as a full band. They call it a little epic. It’s a break-up album executed without spite or jealousy. Most of all, it’s an everything-is-gonna-be-alright album.
