Cub Sport have returned with a new single and tour dates for February.

The Brisbane alt-pop group have confirmed shows in London, Dublin, Manchester, Nottingham and Brighton as part of a new European tour. The dates will follow up an appearance at London's O2 Forum next week opening for Aurora.

The four-piece have also released their new upbeat pop anthem, Sometimes, the first single from their forthcoming third album, out early next year. Written during the band's 'BATS' album campaign, Sometimes was inspired by a culmination of the highs of having their music connect with people while vocalist Tim Nelson adjusted to making himself so open about his identity.

"I feel like alleviating a lot of societal pressures, expectations and fears has made way for a higher-vibration version of myself. Listening through the album, I can hear and feel a lighter new energy. This is the first body of work I've created entirely since being out, so in a way, I feel like this is the first album I’ve written entirely as myself and it feels powerful."

Following sold out UK and US dates earlier this year, the Brisbane alt-pop group have been busy on the Australian festival circuit this summer and have just finished opening for Vance Joy on his arena tour down under.

Tue February 12 2019 - LONDON Omeara

Paul Weller - True Meanings (Album Review)
Mon 24 Sep 2018
Paul Weller is consistently operating at a level that most other musical grandees struggle to reach. His 14th solo record arrives hot on the heels of 2017’s ‘A Kind Revolution’, an innovative rock album that reminded us that the modfather still possesses political punch and a high degree of intellectual dynamism. ‘True Meanings’ is far softer and comprises pastoral ballads led mostly by acoustic guitar.
