Musical successes aside, Cub Sport are keen humanitarians. In mid-2016 band members Tim and Sam came out as gay and in a relationship. Alongside out-and-proud guitarist/vocalist Zoe, the band use their platform to speak out against homophobia and continually strive to develop and encourage a safe community on the band's social media channels as well as at shows.
Cub Sport are now launching into the next phase of their career with their sophomore album, ‘BATS’. The group have cemented themselves as one to watch internationally with lead single “O Lord” receiving glowing reviews on The Fader, Huffington Post and i-D.
Largely recorded and produced at home by lead singer/songwriter Tim Nelson, the much-anticipated follow up record displays a new side of Cub Sport. While still deeply rooted in pop, the new album indulges soul and R&B influences, making for Cub Sport's most honest, intimate and sexiest release to date.
