Don Broco release new single ‘Technology’ and announce headline show at Alexandra Palace
Don Broco have released their brand new single ‘Technology’ out now through SharpTone Records. ‘Technology’ is another huge rock anthem from the Bedford four-piece, with hard-hitting riffs and massive choruses. The single premiered on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, receiving its first play from Frank Carter who sat in for Dan P Carter.
Regarding the single frontman Rob Damiani says, “‘Technology’ is about a casual swipe through Instagram that ended up in me unfollowing a load of mates. In reality my friends are not vain, self obsessed, PDA loving show offs so I’m blaming social media and the habitual nature of sharing every waking moment of your life online.”
The out-of-this-world video accompanying the track focuses on the band through the point of view of a social media-scrolling smartphone, as Don Broco play a show during a catastrophic alien invasion, to the oblivious attention of the smartphone owner… until their own untimely demise. It is genuinely unlike anything you’ve seen before!
Speaking about the video Rob continues, “We’re all addicted to our phones, so for the video we thought it would be fun to see if an alien invasion was enough for us to put the phones down for a minute… turns out it’s not. In the video game you get to fight off the alien army as each band member and I shoot microphones out my hands which is pretty awesome.”
Fans will be able to immerse themselves in the ‘Technology’ experience with the interactive release of Technology – The Video Game through donbroco.com and the IOS and Android app stores. The platform game, reminiscent of Super Mario or Megaman, will allow fans to play as Don Broco’s Rob Damiani (vocals), Matt Donnelly (drums), Simon Delaney (guitar) or Tom Doyle (bass) as they fight their way out of Alexandra Palace and into the streets of London while shooting invading aliens.
Alexandra Palace will be the scene of Don Broco’s biggest headline show to date on November 11th. The band are proud to announce their recent US touring partners State Champs and London quintet Counterfeit as the support acts. Tickets are available here: https://myticket.co.uk/artists
