Britain’s band Sports Team release their second studio album “Gulp!”. The album is due out August 26, but was meant to be released July 22.

Gulp! follows Sports Team’s 2020 Mercury Prize nominated debut album “Deep Down Happy”, which charted at #2 in the UK’s Official Charts, achieving the biggest vinyl sales for a debut British artist in 2020.

Gulp! was announced back in March and so far, Sports Team have released three tracks from the record: “R Entertainment”, ‘The Game” and “Cool It Kid”.

R Entertainment explores the packaging down of all human experience into entertainment, prompted by the infinite scroll through social feeds and the manic formlessness of the images we are hit with every day. Graphic news interrupted by ads for season 17 of The Bodyguard, news as a rubbernecking, passively waiting for the next drop of horror as we flick through recipes.

Formed in 2016, the band released two EPs “Winter Nets” and “Keep Walking!” before sharing their debut album “Deep Down Happy” to widespread critical acclaim, praised by The Times for their “indomitable spirit and a refusal to take things too seriously” and The Guardian for their “sharply observational lyrics skewering the mores of suburbia”.

Tracklist:

1. The Game
2. Dig!
3. The Drop
4. Cool It Kid
5. Unstuck
6. R Entertainment
7. Kool Aid
8. Getting Better
9. Fingers
10. Light Industry
