Sports Team to release debut album ‘Deep Down Happy’ in June

The group have released an open letter to fans amidst coronavirus pandemic.

Originally meant to be released on 3rd April, Sports Team have made the decision to postpone the release of their debut record ‘Deep Down Happy’ to 19th June.

Penning an open letter to fans, the six-piece say:

“In a way it seems fitting that we’re trying to release our debut in the midst of a once in a generation global pandemic.

We’ve tried as hard as we can to keep everything on track. But on a lot of sound advice, and to take pressure off all the people helping us deliver the album — we’ve taken the call to reschedule the record to June 19, and live shows, until June. Playing for you lot means everything to us, and we’ll be back doing it as soon as we safely can. All tickets and pre-orders will remain valid.

Keep buying music by the artists you love; it means the world. We’re seeing out the foreseeable in a studio in the West Country, getting onto new music. If you want to write to us, we’ll try and reply to every letter we get.

Address here:
PROPAGATION HOUSE, EAST LODGE, NORTH TAMERTON, EX226SE

Anyway, it’s going to be hard for a bit, for music, and for everyone. Support your local scene, and look out for each other, we know you will.

All the love in the world from your friends Sports Team.”
