US punk band Modern Baseball have just launched a hotline to help protect punters in the mosh pit at their shows.
After just finishing up an Aussie tour, Modern Baseball are now back in the states to embark on a big run of shows for their The Holy Ghost tour. Today they kick it all off in Nashville, equipped with their very own gig safety hotline, a phone number which runs direct to their tour manager.
If anyone is feeling unsafe, or are in the presence of someone acting irresponsibly, the band is encouraging concert goers to send a quick text, which will be passed onto venue security. In their adorable little animated video set to schmaltzy jazz, they offer the example: “There is a big blood thirsty monster, stage right. Please send help!!”
The band continue to explain “We want you to see us play in a safe, comfortable space.”
