After three years since the release of their 3rd studio album Technology, Don Broco has finally made their return with not only a new single & album announcement but a huge UK tour too!
The Bedford formed band previewed their brand new single ‘Manchester Super Reds No.1 Fan’ on BBC Radio 1, the night before the album announcement. The song is a pounding anthem, the type that’s made for you to scream the lyrics when it plays. With its heavier than usual guitar riffs, it’s unlike anything the band has ever made before.
The video is a super fun Sci-fi spoof that shows the band trying to create their own team, in the image of David Beckham. It all starts off well but ends with the newly made team trying to destroy the band. It also shows a lot of footage of the guys in their natural habitat, performing as a band.

One thing the band has continued to do within this newer sound is keep the meaningful messages within their lyrics which is one the strongest traits a band can have. In their older albums, they’re touched upon topics such as mental health, the impact of society and how people handle fame. Despite the title, this song really isn’t about football and more about the reality of what it’s like to have a following on social media.
“I wanted to write something about an aspect of social media culture I’d really noticed in the last year. 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.”
Rob Damiani, lead vocalist of Don Broco
Alongside the new single, the band announced their 4th album Amazing Things which is set to be released on September 17th this year. This 12 track album is set to be another genre-bending album full of unique songs with sounds of metal, rock and even electro, full of songs that could have only been created by them.

Don Broco has previously toured with bands such as 5SOS, You Me At Six, and Bring Me The Horizon, so they’re no strangers to captivating an audience. The band hasn’t toured since 2019 and well, after seeing them sell out huge venues, support tours for incredible bands, and put on unforgettable shows, we are so excited to see them back on the road this year!
