📅 SUNDAY 16TH OCTOBER 2022

🏛️ ROCK CITY NOTTINGHAM

Following a sold out show at London’s Brixton Academy last year, the UK leg will see the band this year stop at London’s Roundhouse for a special show with ‘friends’, with more to be announced on this in the coming months. Sports Team’s vivid vignettes of modern Britain and inspections of the follies, foibles and frustrations of youth have earned them an impassioned fanbase, a real community who come together at the band’s infamously electrifying live shows.

 New album Gulp!, out this summer, houses Sports Team’s most assured and invigorating work to date, and is available to pre-order now on vinyl, CD & cassette from the band’s webstore. Gulp! follows Sports Team’s 2020 Mercury Prize nominated debut album Deep Down Happy, which charted at #2 in the UK’s Official Charts, achieving the biggest vinyl sales for a debut British artist in 2020..

Sports Team are Alex Rice (lead vocals), Rob Knaggs (rhythm guitar + vocals), Henry Young (lead guitar), Oli Dewdney (bass), Al Greenwood (drums) and Ben Mack (keyboard + percussion). Formed in 2016, the band released two EPs Winter Nets and Keep Walking! before sharing their debut album Deep Down Happy in June 2020 to widespread critical acclaim, praised by The Times for their “indomitable spirit and a refusal to take things too seriously” and The Guardian for their “sharply observational lyrics skewering the mores of suburbia”.
