Modern Baseball Release “The Thrash Particle” via The Fader

Modern Baseball have released a surprise new song, “The Thrash Particle,” streaming now via The Fader. Brendan Lukens of Modern Baseball explains the inspiration behind the song below.

“Too dumb to understand; “Thrash” came about during a spiraling case of jealousy. Too jealous to understand how dumb I was being, I did and said things to put my relationships to “the test”; making sure my relationships were strong and for all of the “right reasons”. In time, my paranoia grew and I began to hurt those I wanted to be with the most.”

Stream “The Thrash Particle” now via The Fader.
Earlier this month, Modern Baseball released another new single “Revenge Of The Nameless Ranger” for free download. The song was originally released as an exclusive download for those who pre-ordered tickets for their upcoming fall tour with PUPJeff Rosenstock and Tiny Moving Parts but can now be streamed or downloaded via the Modern Baseball Bandcamp for free. A full list of tour dates for Modern Baseball can be found below.

Modern Baseball have also recently announced reissues of The Nameless Ranger, their first ever EP and Couples Therapy, their 2012 split with Marietta. Remastered for vinyl by Ryan Schwabe, this is the first vinyl pressing of both records. Pre-orders for the 10″ of The Nameless Ranger and the 7″ of Couples Therapy are available via Lame-O Records.

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 Miner Street Recordings, mastered by Will Yip and released through Run For Cover Records, You’re Going to Miss It All features 12 tracks that showcase the band’s signature witty indie-pop.
