RESCHEDULED to THURSDAY 10th SEPTEMBER
Presented by Banquet Records
The night before the release of their hugely anticipated debut full length record titled ‘Deep Down Happy’, the acclaimed indie-rockers Sports Team return to Kingston to headline New Slang.
“Sports Team a band of six singular characters who have been variously described as one of the most raucous, electrifying and chaotic acts in the UK release their debut album Deep Down Happy. The highly anticipated record, is their first release on the legendary Island Records label. Sports Team came up on the back of word of mouth live hype, drawing round the block queues to chaotic early gigs at The Five Bells and Moth Club before releasing any music. Recording their first EP (Winter Nets) in a converted Timberyard in Hammersmith, the band have consistently set themselves apart from the acts they came up playing with, showing an intoxicating ambition, and their debut album Deep Down Happy, delivers on all bold claims, and confirm their place at the head of a group of young guitar acts.”
Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Sports Team on stage at 10:30pm
