The brilliant rock band Don Broco recently announced their latest single ‘Gumshield’ and we’re obsessed with it!
‘Gumshield’ is the ferocious album opener, showcasing the power and excitement to come across Amazing Things’ twelve tracks. This hard-hitting single is an incredible one that goes from a strong, rock verse to a more hypnotizing melody for the chorus. It explores the pitfalls of social media. More specifically, the anxiety people feel when posting online, fearing it may resulting in arguments.
The English rock band from Bedford are no strangers to surprising their fan base with an out-of-the-blue new single. With the Don Broco’s 2018 track ‘Pretty,’ the band convinced their fans that bass player Tom Doyle was getting married but actually, the band were just dropping a hilarious horror wedding-themed video instead. Before the ‘Gumshield’ release, lead singer Rob Damiani began documenting his boxing training regime via social media leading up to his alleged first professional fight. The singer was set to step into the ring against UK British Heavyweight champion Dave “White Rhino” Allen. When it was time for the fight, the link took watchers to the brand new video for the second single from Amazing Things instead of the supposed fight.
Excited to share our new song & video for ‘Gumshield!’ After Tom’s fake wedding for the last album and the Beckham fan account hacking on our Instagram before ‘Manchester Super Reds’ we wanted to bow out on one final prank
