10 Hours With Modern Baseball: A Lesson In Ambition & Acceptance

FUSE TV - 10 Hours With Modern Baseball: A Lesson In Ambition & Acceptance

For a band still in its infancy, Modern Baseball conjures a lot of folklore. 

The majority of their mythology is steeped in a very powerful conversation about mental health: for one of its frontmen, Brendan Lukens, the band saved his life. The same is true for many of their fans. In four years, they've gone from writing songs as personal journals to being what a lot of people would consider an important band.

Their third full-length album, Holy Ghost, is a detailed account of that journey. At moments, it's a hard listen—nothing is off-limits. We shadowed the band around New Jersey on their record release day (May 13) to learn about the album from the guys themselves. Here's what happens in 10 hours with Modern Baseball.
