Modern Baseball Announce Album #3 With Goosebump-Inducing Teaser

Screen Shot 2016-02-26 at 3.58.26 PM

How are you feeling on this fine afternoon? If your answer is “emotionally stable”, never fear! Modern Baseball have officially lifted the veil on their third studio album! Two years following 2014’s exceptional You’re Gonna Miss It All, the Pennsylvanian hipster-emo quartet are set to drop Holy Ghost on May 13th via Run For Cover and Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Not only in the sense that it’s their first LP not to feature a sepia-toned family photo on the cover art (though that is admittedly a huge thing which we’re ever-so-slightly uncomfortable with), the disc marks a consequential departure in style for Modern Baseball; when frontman Brendon Lukens first teased the record last October, he proclaimed the record to feature “multi-tracked vocal parts, jarring mid-song tempo switch-ups, and a latent metal influence.” Yeah.

The new album announcement comes via a spellbinding “making of” clip that the band dropped on their social media, featuring an acoustic run-down of what’s poised to be the record’s title track, accompanied by some powerful slow-mo shots. You can check it out below, but we’re warning you now: feels. So many feels.

Modern Baseball will make their Australian touring debut in April with a four-date Eastern Coast run. The band’s Melbourne show sold out within a couple of days, but a new show has recently been added – unfortunately for those sleeping on their ticket money, however, that also sold out in a matter of hours.

Take a look at the teaser video for Holy Ghost below!

Holy Ghost is out May 13th via Run For Cover / Cooking Vinyl Australia.
