After releasing their massively successful third album Cub Sport only earlier this year, Cub Sport have returned with the first taste of new music – “I Never Cried So Much In My Whole Life”.
Featuring a stunning guest vocal from Darren Hayes (of Savage Garden), “I Never Cried So Much In My Whole Life” marks a new phase for the independent and self-managed Brisbane four piece, who have spent the past couple of months finishing off a fresh batch of new music written and recorded amidst a huge year of global touring.

The last twelve months have been a dream for Brisbane’s Cub Sport. Between lead singer Tim Nelson and Keys player Sam Netterfield coming out and getting engaged, to releasing their honest and emotional second album ‘BATS’, to selling out EVERY SHOW of their biggest and most exciting Australian tour and getting ready to head to North America and then UK and Europe… For an independent and self-managed band, that’s a pretty huge accomplishment.

Earlier in the year, Cub Sport surprised fans by releasing the deeply personal and heart-wrenching gospel/RnB-inspired pop tune “O Lord”, the first taste off their much-anticipated second studio album ‘BATS’ (out now).
The song became an anthem for their fans, racking up a hundred thousand plays in a matter of days, was added to triple J rotation, was featured on i-D Magazine and The Fader, as well as on multiple Apple and Spotify playlists, prompting headlines such as “O Lord is perfect” (Project U) and “‘O Lord’ is a harmony-drenched, intimate love letter to that breathtaking, fragile happiness that comes with getting the thing you really, really wanted” (Pedestrian).

Cub Sport share the new video for “O Lord” – which not only visually represents the liberation of coming out, but also breaks down some of the personal battles with beauty and masculinity Tim has experienced in his life. This is Cub Sport shaking off their demons, and baring all.
“I feel like the O Lord video is the visual soulmate for the song – it beautifully represents what the song means for me and it feels like a personal triumph! I was bullied when I was growing up because I wasn’t as masculine as some of my peers apparently thought I should be. It’s something I’ve been self-conscious about for years, so it’s super liberating to make this video and feel free from judgement. The video was directed, shot and edited by the wonderful Joe Agius. I couldn’t imagine making this video with anybody else.”
