Philadelphia’s Modern Baseball have released a new track, “Rock Bottom” via BrooklynVegan today off their upcoming sophomore full-length, You’re Gonna Miss It All out February 11, 2014 on Run For Cover Records.  “It’s as personal as anything on Frightened Rabbit’s The Midnight Organ Fight but with the kick of the more rockin’ moments of Jimmy Eat World’s Bleed American, and like those bands, singer Brendan Lukens has the kind of voice that sticks out among the masses of rock bands doing similar things,” BrooklynVegan said of the latest song.

 

 

“Your Graduation”, the first single off You’re Gonna Miss It All received widespread acclaim from outlets such as Pitchfork and The AV Club who said the track “captures exactly the right mood for dwelling on the minute details of past regrets.”  Pre-order for the record is now available from Run For Cover at: http://www.runforcoverstore.com/index.php/artists/modern-baseball.html

 

 

Modern Baseball was formed in 2011 by friends and guitarists Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens, who were soon joined by Ian Farmer on bass and Sean Huber on drums.  The band self-released their first EP The Nameless Ranger in 2011 while still in high school.  Shortly after the members relocated to Philadelphia to attend college and quickly gained a strong following in the Philadelphia music community, teaming up with locals Marietta to release the Couples Therapy split in the spring of 2012.  Modern Baseball released their debut full-length Sports later that year on Lame-O Records, which they self-recorded and produced.  After spending the summer of 2013 touring heavily across the US, the band headed into Studio A in Philadelphia to self-record You’re Going to Miss It All.  Mixed by Jonathan Low at Minor Street Recordings and mastered by Will Yip, You’re Going to Miss It All features 12 tracks that showcase the band’s signature witty indie-pop.

 

The band will join The Wonder Years as openers on their spring US tour alongside their Run For Cover label mates Citizen as well as Defeater and Real Friends (all dates below).
