Sports Team are pleased to share a new video. The video for ‘Fishing,’ directed by Kris Rimmer, captures the six-piece performing the track in a surreal studio setting as the camera continuously spins around them for a dizzying intensity equivalent to the energy of their live shows.
Alex Rice shares about the concept of the video, “don’t think we’ve ever actually been fishing but I imagine the high budget studio video captures all the spirit of a day at the quay.”
The band recently announced their largest UK headline tour to date, with the band set to embark on a 13-night run this winter. Scheduled to take the band to all corners of our fair isle, the tour will include their biggest ever headline show, with the six-piece due to make their bow at the O2 Kentish Town Forum to finish their breakout year.
Of the tour frontman Alex Rice offers: “The songs are written to be a spectacle live. That’s where you’ve got to hear them, front row, with most of the parts played wrong. No one’s doing it better”
Ahead of this winter’s headline run, the band can be found supporting Pale Waves before playing their first arena shows as main support for Two Door Cinema Club. All dates can be found below.
‘Fishing’ is the first track to come from the band’s as yet untitled debut album, set for release in 2020. More information on the band can be found below, with further details on the upcoming LP due soon.
