Cub Sport have announced their BATS album tour with the release of their album ‘BATS’ just a week away.

The band have had a crazy fortnight with Tim and Sam’s engagement hitting the headlines again during BIGSOUND – where Frooty TV caught up with them –  and their latest single ‘Chasin’ being added to triple j rotation.

The BATS album tour will make its way around Australia 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.

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?!

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.”
