“Revenge Of The Nameless Ranger” – MODERN BASEBALL release new single

MODERN BASEBALL recently announced reissues of The Nameless Ranger, their first ever EP and Couples Therapy, their 2012 split with Marietta. Remastered for vinyl by Ryan Schwabe, this is the first vinyl pressing of both records. Pre-orders for the 10″ of The Nameless Ranger and the 7″ of Couples Therapy are available via Lame-O Records.

Modern Baseball was formed in 2011 by friends and guitarists Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens, who were soon joined by Ian Farmer on bass and Sean Huber on drums. The band self-released their first EP The Nameless Ranger in 2011 while still in high school. Shortly after the members relocated to Philadelphia to attend college and quickly gained a strong following in the Philadelphia music community, teaming up with locals Marietta to release the Couples Therapy split in the spring of 2012. Modern Baseball released their debut full-length Sports later that year on Lame-O Records, which they self-recorded and produced. After spending the summer of 2013 touring heavily across the US, the band headed into Studio A in Philadelphia to self-record You’re Going to Miss It All. Mixed by Jonathan Low at Miner Street Recordings, mastered by Will Yip and released through Run For Cover Records, You’re Going to Miss It All features 12 tracks that showcase the band’s signature witty indie-pop.

Lyrics:

I’m just not the same. And I’m never gonna be again.
Pissing contest in the parking lot, I wonder if I’ll win.
I’ll just point and blame to the bottles under the third bench.
It’s not hard to hoax a smile in front of your friends.

I spend a lot of time reading up on things I do.
I spend that other time with you.

I’ll just moan and complain about how I’m over “all this.”
Two short of a Joinerbomb; they’ll grin and gossip.

I spend a lot of time reading up on things I do.
The quarrels with myself are turning into feuds.
Investigate your tone of voice for subtle clues.
Are you the one who change me?
Am I the one who changed you?

“You’re just not the same as when we met. I don’t know you anymore.
Can you take me back to the times when your clothes took up my drawers? Of all the horrid things (your stupid smile). I saw your face when I said “why’d you have to: go and change, ruin what we made, destroy everything.”

I’m just not the same.
