Modern Baseball without Brendan Lukens on current European tour

Posted by AP on 26/01/17

Modern Baseball are without guitarist/vocalist Brendan Lukens on their current European tour, which also includes a stop at Lille Vega in Copenhagen next Saturday, February 04th. Lukens offered the following comments regarding his absence yesterday:

Hello fam - Bren here,

I have some unexpected news. I will not be joining Modern Baseball on the upcoming Europe / UK tour. I am okay -- but I need this time at home to focus on my mental and physical health. The band will continue on with the tour thanks to help from mega friends Thins Lips, Superweaks and all the MOBO crew. This was an incredibly hard decision for me, and it was even harder confronting myself and the band about how I am feeling. Still, I know this is what I need right now. I can never thank MOBO and our crew enough for taking on the roles they have to support me. 
I love y'all very much.

Mental illness is very serious and should never be taken lightly. It's a long journey to understanding and coping with your illness but I have so much faith in y'all, and myself. If you or a friend ever feels lonely, depressed, sad, confused, whatever here are some crisis hotlines you can call. Again, I love y'all very much -- talk soon

Tickets for the Copenhagen show are still available via, costing 145 DKK a piece. Be sure to keep an eye on the official Facebook event for further updates as well.
