With the release of their album ‘BATS‘ just a week away, Cub Sport have announced their BATS Album Tour with tickets on sale tomorrow.
The band have had a crazy fortnight with an online video of Tim and Sam’s engagement clocking up over half a million views in just under a week, their BIGSOUND performance making waves and their latest single ‘Chasin‘ being added to triple j rotation.
The BATS album tour will make its way around Australia in the biggest venues of the band’s career, including the opportunity for all-ages fans to see them in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, plus 18+ shows in Adelaide and Perth.
Largely written, recorded and produced at home by frontman Tim Nelson, BATS is an intimate album inspired by experiences of self-doubt, growth, partying, coming out, learning the power of self-acceptance, self-belief and falling in love. While rooted in pop, the record is an unhindered sonic exploration with soul and R&B influences.
Fans across the world have been drawn to the aura of honesty, vulnerability and sincerity as was evident on the album’s first single ‘O Lord‘ and has continued with ‘Chasin‘, a song written as Nelson came to grips with the feelings he had for bandmate Sam Netterfield.
“In the middle of 2015 I went on a writing trip to LA and London,” explained Tim. “I enjoyed getting to write and record with some really talented people but I was sad for most of my time away. I missed Sam so much and I was just asking myself the whole time, why am I putting myself through this?! It made me realise that I was in love with him which was equal parts exciting and distressing. I’d hardly come out to myself and the idea of coming out to anyone else was terrifying.”
