We feel it's time to give you an update on what's happening in our world. For the past few months we've been busy composing our 8th album and this week we finally entered the studio to start recording! We're super excited about it, as this is our first recording in 4 years, plus this will be our first album with our new singer Henning Basse (who should not be a stranger to our fans by now).

We've entered Noise Factory Studios in Belgium this week with producer/engineer Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Krokus, etc.) to track drums and it's sounding huge already!

 

As schedule is pretty hectic for the next few months with recordings, finalizing everything, etc. we feel we need time to have  a proper setup for the album release and give it the attention it deserves. 

Therefore, we have decided to postpone our UK/European club dates to early 2017. All dates are there and we've even added an extra UK show in Southampton and one more in Strasbourg, France. Tickets already purchased are still valid for the re-scheduled dates. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we promise it'll be worth the wait! 

 

Our summer festival appearances are still on and we'll be revealing more info on the new album as we go along!

Modern Baseball formed at Drexel University in Philadelphia in 2012 where songwriters Brendan Lukens and Jake Ewald began writing catchy pop-punk-influenced indie rock, with nods to the likes of Say Anything and Motion City Soundtrack alongside the lyricism of Dashboard Confessional and the wit of the Front Bottoms. The high school friends started out as an acoustic act, but after meeting Sean Huber (drums) and Ian Farmer (bass), they became a four-piece. Their debut record, Sports, gained local traction and eventually, in 2013, online buzz started to pick up for their lo-fi songs, which captured the awkwardness of teenagers surrounded by social media. The quartet remained at university while taking time out so they could to tour, but that changed when they were offered a support slot with fellow Philly-based outfit the Wonder Years. They soon penned a deal with Run for Cover Records and returned to the studio to record their follow-up, You're Gonna Miss It All, which appeared in 2014. An EP, MOBO Presents: The Perfect Cast EP featuring Modern Baseball, arrived in 2015 via Lame-O Records, with Holy Ghost, the band's third studio long player, slated to follow in May 2016. Having enlisted an outside producer for the first time in the shape of Joe Reinhardt, Holy Ghost saw them unleashing their inner stadium rockers, channelling U2 and Aretha Franklin to make their biggest, most epic-sounding record to date.
