Not content with selling out a headline show at the iconic Alexandra Palace in London, rock band Don Broco set out on a UK tour this month, bringing their high-octane performance to Newcastle’s Northumbria Institute on Monday 19th February.

This run of shows comes in support of the highly-anticipated release of their brand new album Technology, released this month via Sharptone Records. The follow-up to 2015’s Automatic delivers more of Don Broco’s unique sound, as post-hardcore alt. rock blends with a dash of 80s synths to produce a sound that’s equal parts energetic and intriguing.

Lead single Everybody was an instant hit when it was released in 2016, despite its grisly subject matter, inspired by the band’s involvement in a serious car crash. The rifftastic Pretty contrasts choruses of heavy guitars with Rob Damiani’s signature gruff vocals in the chorus and harmonic, almost jovial verses. The band are well known for their unusual videography preferences, and the controversial video for Pretty is definitely not for the fainthearted (unless you’re okay watching the wedding of bassist Tom Delaney take a very gory, twisted turn).

Support on this run of shows comes from Japanese rock band Man With A Mission, reversing the line-up from the shows they played together to crowds of 25,000 people in Tokyo at the end of last year.
