About

Bedford pop-inflected rock outfit

Don Broco’s roots go back to the late 2000s when vocalist Rob Damiani, guitarist Simon Delaney, drummer Matt Donnelly and bassist Luke Rayner were attending Bedford Modern School together. After secondary school, they went on hiatus to attend university, but made a pact to return to playing post-graduation.

Between 2009 and 2011, Don Broco performed at several UK festivals including Camden Crawl, Underage, Download, Sonisphere, Slam Dunk and Reading & Leeds. Although Rayner departed the band in 2012, they released their debut album Priorities that year and it broke into the UK top 40 singles chart. Tom Doyle also joined the group around that time as the new bassist. The standalone song You Wanna Know came out in 2013 and topped the UK rock singles chart.

Don Broco scored their first UK top 10 album with Automatic, which came out in 2015 and reached the No.6 spot. It also helped them land a support slot on Bring Me The Horizon’s 2016 UK tour.

Known for mixing massive hooks with brilliant melodies and clever, observational lyrics, by this time Don Broco’s sound had grown to encompass elements of funk, dance and new wave.

In autumn 2016, the band signed with the US independent label SharpTone Records and released the track Everybody, which would become the lead single for their third album.

When Technology arrived in 2018, it was their first to break into the top five of the UK albums chart. Produced by Dan Lancaster (blink-182, Good Charlotte) and Jason Perry (Fatherson, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.), the record was preceded by five other singles: Pretty, Technology, Stay Ignorant, T-Shirt Song and Come Out To L.A. In addition to playing Vans Warped Tour in North America, Don Broco made their seventh appearance at Reading & Leeds on the BBC Radio 1 Stage that summer.

The band embarked on a huge UK tour in 2019 and were nominated for Best British Live Act at the Kerrang! Awards.

In May 2021, Don Broco revealed the track Manchester Super Reds No.1 Fan plus announced their fourth album, Amazing Things, due out on 17 September 2021 as well as a UK tour in October and November 2021 to support it.
