Modern Baseball Tickets
A young, influential pop-punk band, Modern Baseball is known for its combination of 90s-style emo with timely lyrics that focus on social media and other contemporary issues.
Modern Baseball gained its initial momentum through extensive touring; the band continues to hit the road on a regular basis. The band spends quite a bit of time at musical festivals, including the Bled Fest and the Leeds Festival.
Jake Ewald's dad might be the biggest Modern Baseball fan in the world. In fact, he's even been known to leak sensitive tour information before the band itself actually announces it! John Ewald makes sure all of his Twitter followers know when his son's band is playing, and will routinely retweet favourable mentions of the group.John Ewald is also somewhat responsible for the name of the group. 'Modern Baseball Techniques' was a book owned by guitarist and singer Jake Ewald's dad, which was discovered by the group on the night they were formed. What happened to the word 'Techniques'? It became the name of a self-released album of rarities that the band has sold during tour stops.
Formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Modern Baseball has toured extensively in North America and the United Kingdom, finding passionate, dedicated fans all along the way. With Jake Ewald and Brendan Lukens sharing vocal duties as well as guitar responsibilities, Ian Farmer on bass and Sean Huber on drums, Modern Baseball crafts catchy, memorable emo-pop-punk anthems about deep subjects such as Facebook statuses, eating too much pizza, and gaining the courage to talk to that cute girl for the first time.
Riding the momentum created by the release of Sports, Modern Baseball hit the road and toured nearly non-stop in support of the album. The group was able to rapidly expand its fanbase thanks to acclaimed performances at Bled Fest and FEST 12. Multiple tours with emo-pop heavyweights The Wonder Years only helped to increase Modern Baseball's credibility within the scene. Run For Cover Records scooped up the band and signed it to a deal, which facilitated the release of You're Gonna Miss It All. Modern Baseball once again hit the road in support of the album, this time crossing the pond to play all over the United Kingdom, including multiple dates on the Slam Dunk Festival, shows in Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The band's global following was a large reason why the video for the song Your Graduation surpassed one million views on YouTube.
Modern Baseball recorded its debut full-length record Sports with the help of the free studios available to students of Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The album, which features such contemporary song titles as @chl03k and I Think You Were In My Profile Picture Once, gained almost immediate praise from fans of the emo genre, who latched onto the band's unique ability to craft songs of relatable Millennial anguish and excitement. Not long after the release of Sports, the four-piece outfit teamed up with fellow Philadelphia contemporaries The Hundred Acre Wood on a self-titled split EP, which featured a re-do of Re-Do from the group's debut album, as well as a new track titled (240). You're Gonna Miss It All, the band's second full length record, catapulted the group to the very top of the emo and pop punk music scene, and debuted at #97 on the Billboard 200 charts.
Despite being one of the youngest bands in the emo and pop-punk genre, Modern Baseball performs with the confidence and stage presence of a band that's been touring for decades. Unlike most bands with two vocalists, Jake Ewald and Brendan Lukens maintain a nearly 50-50 split when it comes to lead singer duties, which keeps both voices fresh. Of course, when the entire crowd is singing along to every word, it's easy for either of them to let the throngs of screaming fans take over during the chorus."
