Sports Team are pleased to announce 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”
Tickets for the headline tour will be available from Friday 13th September.
Alongside today’s news, the band also share their brand new single ‘Fishing’, premiered last night by Annie Mac on her Radio 1 show. The frenetic track has become a live favourite as the band completed a full slate of UK and EU festivals as well as their debut US dates.
Ahead of this winter’s headline run, the band can be found supporting Pale Waves before playing their first arena shows as head 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.
