Sports Team debuts new single “The Game"

Sports Team debuts their new song, “The Game,” In conjunction, the group premieres an accompanying video, starring cult 70’s punk legend John Otway as frontman Alex Rice is put through a series of surreal trials. The new track is off the band’s highly anticipated new album, Gulp!, which is set for release on August 12 via Island UK/Bright Antenna. “The Game” follows the release of “R Entertainment,” the first single off the album.

Of the song, the band explains, “It’s a mantra for a nation of landlords… Something to mutter to yourself behind the electric gates as the world burns around you. It’s that bunkered, island mentality, where someone has allowed themselves to believe that the news is what happens to other people.”

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 2020 Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Deep Down Happy.
