Steady Hands And W.C. Lindsay Announce East Coast Dates

Steady Hands, the acoustic-led side project of Modern Baseball‘s Sean Huber, will be touring the East Coast this Summer with W.C. Lindsay. The tour runs through August and hits most major outlets between New England and Florida. Venue information has yet to be released.

Given Modern Baseball’s rise to fame over the past several months, I was not expecting to see Steady Hands for a long while – I’m happy that I was proven wrong. For those who are unaware, Steady Hands have released a handful of folk-punk jams over the years, largely reminiscent of Frank Turner’s …

Modern Baseball Release “Your Graduation” Video

Modern Baseball are riding a wave of publicity and acclaim following the February release of their Billboard chart-topping album You’re Gonna Miss It All. Today, the Pennsylvania emo pop (yea, that’s what I called them) outfit partnered with Noisey to premiere their official video for “Your Graduation.” The clip, just like the song, is crazy good, and it might just be the best thing you hear all week.

It’s hard to describe why people love Modern Baseball. Their lyrics are simple, their voices aren’t exactly top 40 material, and there is almost nothing commercial about their image. Alternative fans …

Modern Baseball will release their new full-length, You’re Gonna Miss It All, through Run For Cover Records on February 11, and you can stream a new song from the album over at Fuse. Even more than the last two songs the band has released, “Charlie Black” highlights the growth and evolution Modern Baseball have experienced in the two years since their scrappy debut, Sports. The production is slicker, the instrumentation more intricate, and the lyrics more refined.
