Modern Baseball release two new songs from ‘Holy Ghost,’ announce huge headlining tour

Modern Baseball 2016 - Holy Ghost

Happy Modern Baseball day. The band has just released a first look at their hotly-anticipated third LP, Holy Ghost, in the form of two new songs. You can stream the Jake Ewald-fronted “Everyday” and the Brendan Lukens-fronted “Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind” below, courtesy of NPR.

The record, due out on May 13 via Run For Cover, seems to be a huge step forward for the band in every conceivable way. Each of the newly released tracks trades the goofy innocence laced in Sports and You’re Gonna Miss It All for a newfound lyrical confidence, as well as notable leaps in songwriting prowess and a darker take on the production angle. Ewald’s vocal range is better than ever on “Everyday,” while Lukens sheds the whiny tone he’s become known for, for a truly resonant vocal take on “Apple Cider…”

Modern Baseball will hit the road with Joyce Manor and Thin Lips this Spring, hitting some impressively big venues, including the Fillmore in their hometown of Philadelphia and a two-night stint in Irving Plaza in New York City. Check out all of the dates and songs below, and pre-order Holy Ghost here.
