Sports Team are releasing their new EP ‘Keep Walking!’ tomorrow (8th March), and have shared a new video in advance.
The clip, which compiles live and tour footage from across the past year (including a fair few snippets of the band’s messy show at London’s House Of Vans to launch our Class Of 2019), is for new song ‘Get Along’, which was previously only available to hear on a physical only 7” via the band’s own Holm Front label.
Sports Team are set to head out to SXSW in Austin, Texas next week, and they’ll play the DIY British Music Embassy showcase at Latitude 30 next Monday (11th March).
Read our interview with the band’s vocalist Alex Rice about their SXSW performances in our new zine, created specially for the festival - Go Big Or Go Home - here.
After they return from the States, Sports Team will head straight out on their biggest UK tour to date, which they just announced the support acts for last month.
