This week down-under, in the land of Oz, a new band called The Bens, featuring Ben Folds, Ben Lee, and Evan Dando's ex-Radish mate Ben Kweller, are touring. Starting in Brisbane on March 14th, The Bens will be playing solo, backing each other and playing a set of new songs as a threesome. They did also invite Ben Harper, but apparently he was too busy.
There will be a special collectors 'tour-only' EP with the following tracklisting according to thesuburbs.org.uk:
1. Just Pretend
We've heard insider reports that suggest The Bens will be playing the UK this summer (we'd guess at Reading). Check back for dates when we have them confirmed.
