Modern Baseball Shares Powerful Documentary Short: Watch

FUSE TV - Modern Baseball Shares Powerful Documentary Short: Watch

If you've been watching the space that is FM.tv, you've probably stumbled upon the Philadelphia punk band Modern Baseball. They were on our list of most anticipated albums of 2016, we've played the crap out of their Perfect Cast EP and "Apple Cider, I Don't Mind" is probably one of our favorite songs of the year. Basically, the band is good.

But being good is only part of the equation. To be great, there's got to be some meaning there, some substance behind the chords. Modern Baseball have never been dishonest, and now they've shared a documentary detailing their origin and struggles. 

It gets pretty emotional: Singer Brendan Lukens is shown crying while recording, tearing up while describing how his best friend and bandmate Jake Ewald stopped him from committing suicide. Watch Tripping in the Dark above. Holy Ghost, Modern Baseball's next album, is due out May 13.
