Don Broco’s third album Technology finds the band filtering their charismatic 80s pop-infected rock, through far-flung genres of metal, funk and electronics.
The result is a record featuring the band’s most inventive, intelligent and infectious songs yet, with tracks inspired by their world tours (‘¥’), fake news (‘Stay Ignorant’, ‘Technology’) and the effects of the Brexit campaign (‘Porkies’, ‘Something To Drink’), while also addressing personal privacy and smart phone surveillance (‘Good Listener’) amongst songs inspired by relationships (‘Play It Cool’, ‘Tight Rope’, ‘Got To Be You’) and their experiences in the music industry (‘Come Out To LA’).
It follows the release of 2015’s Top 10 album Automatic, which propelled the band into mainstream consciousness and led them to sell out Brixton Academy and play arenas across the UK, Europe and Japan with Bring Me The Horizon, 5 Seconds Of Summer and ONE OK ROCK.
The band also toured the United States for the first time this year in support of State Champs, where they will return next March with Our Last Night, and are about to embark on their very first Australian tour.
2018 will witness Don Broco entering the big league and taking their huge sound worldwide as they continue to cement themselves as one of the most exciting and adventurous rock bands in the UK right now.
