Morning Teleportation is a psychedelic rock band formed in 2005 when Bowling Green, KY natives Travis Goodwin (keyboards), Tres Coker (drums), and Paul Wilkerson (bass) met up with Chicago transplant Tiger Merritt (vocals/guitar), who had just moved to their hometown for college. From the beginning the band has built up a roller coaster of tumultuous rock ‘n roll, featuring analog synths, heartfelt vocals, and sudden changes woven through psychedelia, electronica, and deep-space pickin’ n’ grinnin’. They’ve spent most of the past years on the road playing for enthusiastic crowds at Electric Forest Festival, Bonnaroo Music Festival, and Sasquatch! Music Festival and supporting the likes of The Flaming Lips, Cage The Elephant, Primus, and Modest Mouse
In 2009, the band signed to Glacial Pace Recordings. On March 8, 2011 their debut album, Expanding Anyway, was released on both vinyl and compact disc. The record was produced by Modest Mouse vocalist Isaac Brock. In 2011 Wilkerson left the band. In 2012 Coker was replaced with Joseph Jones. Alex Lindsey, brother of Mona bassist Zach Lindsey, also joined the band full-time on bass. Also in April 2012, Tiger Merritt revealed in an interview that the band had moved back to their hometown, Bowling Green, Kentucky to write material for their next album.
