Sports Team, have announced, their new album, Gulp!, will drop on August 12, 2022 via Island UK/Bright Antenna. The album is the follow-up to 2020 Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Deep Down Happy.

The first single off Gulp!, “R Entertainment,” was released last month. Sports Team explain that “R Entertainment” explores, “The packaging down of all human experience into entertainment, prompted by the infinite scroll through social feeds and the manic formlessness of the images we are hit with every day. Graphic news interrupted by ads for season 17 of The Bodyguard, news as a rubbernecking, passively waiting for the next drop of horror as we flick through recipes.” Following a UK tour with the Wombats, Sports Team confirms their first U.S. festival appearance at Shaky Knees Festival on April 29 and a warmup show at Niagara in New York City on May 4, 2022. The band have also added European dates and festivals throughout the summer, with further stateside headline tour dates to be announced soon.

Sports Team is 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.
