Basement rock band, SPORTS has reunited in Philadelphia, after completing college in the place where it all started for them — Gambier, Ohio. Forming in 2012, the band’s first official recordings began as a collection of demo songs recorded for Kenyon College radio station, WKCO. The demos were late redone to become their first official album, Sunchokes which was released in the spring of 2014.
After a period of touring beyond the Buckeye State, SPORTS went on to release their second album, All of Something in the fall of 2015 on Father/Daughter Records. The release was recorded in Philadelphia alongside noted DIY producer and musician Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Girlpool, Swearin’), and featured a fuller sound for the band. The album received critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone calling it “full of sharp, sweet insight and heart-tugging hooks.”
