Philadelphia indie punk quartet Modern Baseball released a new track The Wedding Singer alongside the video from their forthcoming third LP Holy Ghost. Directed by Kyle Thrash, who also directed the band’s previous music videos as well as their recent mini documentary, Tripping in the Dark, the video for The Wedding Singer is their most ambitious yet.
The first album recorded by someone other than the band themselves, Modern Baseball enlisted Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Joyce Manor) at Headroom Studios in Philadelphia to help refine their sound on Holy Ghost. In a tight 28 minutes, Holy Ghost covers an impressive emotional range, with co-songwriters Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens literally splitting the record in half. The record kicks off with six songs from Ewald and ends with five from Lukens. What they ended up with was a complete record of the past two years– the highs alongside the lows, tales from the road and glorious days at home alongside songs of heartbreak and personal struggle.
