Beloved Brisbane indie-pop crew Cub Sport may have only just wrapped a national tour in support of their excellent debut album, This Is Our Vice, but that doesn't mean they can't turn around and get right back out there — and, in fact, that's exactly what they're doing.

Bearing in mind their younger fans, Cub Sport's impending tour includes a handful of under-18s performances — one each in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney — as they make their way through stops in Adelaide, Perth and the east-coast state capitals from a month tomorrow, kicking off 21 October.

The fact they have a double-header lined up in Melbourne will come as welcome news from fans in the city who attended their commendable but ill-fated recent showing at Northcote Social Club, which was brought to an unfortunate and premature end after frontman Tim Nelson fell victim to sickness.

Given their next outing will be their biggest headline tour to date, it's safe to say he's probably been chowing vitamins since as he and his band-mates look to put a comprehensive exclamation point on what has been an objectively wild and successful past year.

"2016 has been a really exciting year for Cubbies," the band effused in a joint statement. "With two months playing overseas then coming home to our first-ever sold-out national tour, we've been blown away by the amount of love and encouragement we've received.
"When we were making This Is Our Vice, we just wanted it to be genuine and hoped that it would connect with people in a meaningful way. Getting to know our listeners (on the internet and IRL at shows) and hearing firsthand what the album means for them has been amazing — it's more special than we could have hoped for.
"We can't wait to get back on the road! This time around we're stoked to be hitting Perth and doing a few under-18 shows as well!"

Tickets for all shows are on sale now, with the exception of Brisbane's 18+ gig at The Brightside on Thursday 10 November (on sale 3 October). 

Celebrated singer-songwriter Bec Sandridge will be aboard as support for all gigs except Brisbane's under-18s gig at The Brightside on Saturday 12 November.
