Modern Baseball Details Holy Ghost

And shares a pair of songs from the album.

March 03, 2016

Modern Baseball debuted new material today via NPR. Jake Ewald wrote "Every Day," while Brendan Lukens penned "Apple Cider, I Don't Mind;" both songs will appear on a forthcoming full-length titled Holy Ghost.

The two men explained the inspiration behind their tracks in emails to NPR. "I have a pretty bad memory," Ewald noted. "When I manage to remember things from my past (recent or distant), they usually seem insignificant on the surface. Nevertheless, those are the things I remember, and most of the important stuff is forgotten. 'Everyday' is a short exhibit of those insignificant memories and an attempt at understanding their importance in my life."

In contrast, Lukens' tune tackles the aftermath of a relationship. "Trust is something every growing relationship needs," he wrote. "Without trust, all your conversations are just questions and doubts. I lost my best friend and partner, and didn't know who to blame. 'Apple' is a toast to looking at past mistakes as a chance to move forward."

Holy Ghost is due out May 13. Listen below, and check out the band's tour dates with Joyce Manor and Thin Lips.
