Press release:

As the release of their third studio album - the self-titled Cub Sport - gets closer, Brisbanes Cub Sport give you the second official single from the album “Party Pill” (out now) and announce their biggest headline tour to date, as they take their new album on tour around the country throughout April.

“Party Pill” is a pop anthem about falling in love in secret. An expansion of the story told in their 2016 single “Come On Mess Me Up”, the track dives deeper into how Tim was feeling at the time of writing that song, and falling in love even though he wouldnt admit it;

(lyrics from Come On Mess Me Up) We were walking on Sparkes St growing up real fast, left it behind pretty quickly, still the farthest thing from pretty. I found comfort, I fell in love with avoiding problems...

“Party Pill” expands on the journey Tim experienced as he was falling in love with Sam but trying to hide it from himself and everyone around him, to now facing their fears and embracing their love privately and publicly.

“Sam and I first fell in love when we were 17 but I was super scared of what would happen if I came out and decided itd be better for us to just be friends. This part of our story had been weighing on my heart for a long time and Id held onto a lot of shame and embarrassment, but I realised last year that I needed to let go. So, I finally turned the pain of those years into something beautiful and it feels like Im setting myself free.” – Tim

The video for “Party Pill” also marks a first for the band, as its their directorial debut! It was important the clip captured the story and the depth of the song – the result is an expression of the softness and intimacy they never felt they could share until now.
