Don Broco have announced another run of headline UK shows, performing a sold out show in their Bedford hometown before stops in Oxford, Bristol and Bournemouth. The performances are taking place just ahead of the band’s headline performances at Slam Dunk Festival.
Following the newly announced shows and Slam Dunk Festival in September, the band are heading out on a major UK headline tour, which includes multiple nights in various cities, culminating with two shows at London’s Brixton Academy. Tickets for all of the upcoming shows are available here.
The tour news follows the recent release of their new single ‘Gumshield’, taken from the forthcoming new album Amazing Things, which will be released on the 17th September via Sharptone Records. Pre-order the album here: https://shrptn.co/amazingthings
‘Gumshield’ is the ferocious album opener, exploring the pitfalls of social media, specifically the damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don’t nature of taking a position on issues online. The video is another spectacular, with lead singer Rob Damiani stepping into the boxing ring against UK British Heavyweight champion Dave ‘White Rhino’ Allen.
‘Gumshield’ follows the album’s first single ‘Manchester Super Reds No.1 Fan‘, which came with an out of this world video, featuring the band – and ‘David Beckham’ – in a Star Trek spoof like no other. Both tracks have become instant favourites on Radio 1, garnering huge amounts of airplay from the likes of Annie Mac and Jack Saunders.
Always unique, and forever pushing boundaries, Don Broco are never ones to follow the trend and the new album Amazing Things is very aptly named. It’s yet another genre-bending masterpiece with electro, rock, pop, metal and more all wrapped up in their own unique blend, bringing to mind the likes of Deftones, Beastie Boys and Linkin Park amongst others… but simultaneously sounding like nobody else on earth.
Amazing Things is the band’s fourth album, and follows the release of 2018’s Technology, which was was a Top 5 album in the UK charts and has had over 100 million streams to date, and also 2015’s Automatic, which provided the band with their first Top 10 album in the UK.
