Don Broco have today announced a major UK tour for next year, including a headline show at London’s Wembley Arena – their biggest to date – following their Top 5 album, Technology, released earlier this year. To celebrate the announcement, the band have also released the video for their new single, ‘Greatness’.
‘Greatness’ is the fifth in a series of surreal and ground-breaking videos Don Broco have made with US production company Dominar Films. These have seen the band expand the traditional music video formula into spectacular cinematic masterpieces, with eye-popping videos for ‘Everybody’, ‘Pretty’, ‘Technology’ and ‘Come Out To LA’.
The incredible, and hugely entertaining, film for ‘Greatness’ sees the band engaged in a Mad Max style battle, with dramatic fight scenes, a hint of Game Of Thrones and a sensational dance routine, all set in an apocalyptic Los Angeles.
Lead singer Rob Damiani explains, “Our video for ‘Greatness’ picks up 10 years after what went down in ‘Come Out To LA’ & ‘Technology’. My cyborg self has been buried in the desert and the Earth has been decimated by aliens but luckily I have one ally left who’s got my back in this post-apocalyptic world…”
Back in the real world, and following their sold-out Alexandra Palace headline show last November and two sold out tours already this year (playing to over 40,000 fans in less than six months), Don Broco’s 2019 UK tour sees them step up even further as one of Britain’s most exciting arena bands.
Rob Damiani says of the upcoming tour, “We’re so excited to announce our biggest tour to date and first ever arena run next February! We had the best time at Alexandra Palace last year so are massively looking forward to bringing the full Technology show to the rest of the UK. We’ve never played Wembley Arena before so finishing the tour there will be insane. I saw Foo Fighters there back in the day, it was the first time I’d ever crowd-surfed and remember so vividly getting hauled over the barrier then running back round to the back of the crowd and going up again and again. I reckon I must have crowd-surfed about 10 times. I love that place!”
Joining them on all dates will be Welsh pop-punk heroes Neck Deep and US metalcore band Issues – full tour dates can be found below.
