Don Broco - Amazing Things
Don Broco have announced their return with the brand new album Amazing Things, which will be out 17th September via Sharptone Records. To kick off proceedings they have also released the brilliant new single ‘Manchester Super Reds No.1 Fan’ with an out of this world video, which sees the band in a Star Trek spoof like no other. Aboard their very own Starship Broco the band set about creating their very own team of ‘Super Reds’… but how much Beckham DNA will they need before things go bad?
The track is a pounding anthem, deliberately jarring and provocative, seeing the band mix huge synth guitar riffs with hip-hop ready verses, and a chorus designed to be shouted from terraces and stadiums worlwide. “We messed about with the song for a while, stitching and re-stitching, to deliver these very deliberate, jolting shifts that we’ve never done before,” explains lead singer Rob Damiani.
Whilst nominally appearing to be about a particular football team, the song isn’t actually about love for the club, but the darker side of fandom. “I wanted to write something about an aspect of social media culture I’d really noticed in the last year,” Rob continues. “Of people tearing other people down, with much of that destructive negativity coming from the supposed fans of bands and teams. In football, you get these ultra fans who go way beyond the point of criticism into cruel, unadulterated bullying.”
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, Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit 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.
Garnering nothing but praise for their relentless high-octane performances, Don Broco have previously sold-out arena shows across the UK, headlining Wembley Arena after selling out Alexandra Palace as well as festival performances around the world including Vans Warped, Download, Reading & Leeds, Slam Dunk & more. They have also toured with the likes of Mike Shinoda, State Champs, Dance Gavin Dance and Our Last Night in the US as well as selling out their very own US headline tour.
This year the band will be headlining Slam Dunk festival in September before heading out on a UK headline tour, which includes two shows at London’s Brixton Academy
