Don Broco drop new single and announce UK tour dates

News, Uncategorized

The Bedford four-piece Don Broco recently announced dates for their UK tour. Alongside this, yesterday they unleashed a fearsome rock track, ‘T-Shirt’. The guitar driven song is a heavy mesh of pop-rock and is the latest to be taken from their forthcoming album Technology.

The tour kicks off in February 2018 and includes a total of eleven dates across Europe.  In addition, they will also be making an appearance at London’s Alexandra Palace as they play a headline show on November 11th.

Yesterday they released their new track, ‘T-Shirt’ is a pop-rock bluster of inflamed guitar riffs and weaves in vocals moaned by lead singer Rob Damiani. Damiani openly speaks out that the track is “very personal and inspired by previous relationships.”

[NEWS] THE STONE ROSES ANNOUNCE HOMETOWN SHOWS AND FESTIVAL HEADLINE APPEARANCE

News

The Stone Roses have announced live dates for next year.

The legendary Manchester band will play two hometown shows at the Ethiad Stadium next June, as well as headlining the Friday night at next year’s T In The Park.

The Manchester stadium will be host to 60,000 adoring fans each night, with the event highly likely to sell out in record time – similarly to the four-piece’s Heaton Park reunion gigs in 2012.

The news comes as images of lemons (synonymous with the quartet) started to appear around Manchester over the weekend, hinting that an announcement from the band was imminent.

Since learning of the news this evening, fans have taken to Twitter to express their reactions, including This Is England 90 star Thomas Turgoose. The actor tweeted: “The Stone Roses in June in Manchester, I’ll have a bit of that.”

With new touring plans announced at the beginning of festival season, many have speculated whether the band could also be headlining Glastonbury.

News of more festival dates still remains to be seen, but tickets for the Manchester events go on sale at 9:30am on Friday 6th November.

[NEWS] THE WHOSIERS? THE HOOSIERS ARE BACK ON TOUR

News

Either Ben Stiller has shrunk and spontaneously decided to front an indie-pop three piece or The Hoosiers are still alive and touring. That’s right, they have more than two songs.

There’s no denying the uncanny resemblance between frontman Irwin Sparkes and infamous Zoolander ‘model’, as every single person in The Borderline, Soho noticed and announced to the person next to them as he bounded on stage to the Back To The Future theme tune (it IS Oct 21 2015). It would seem they even share a taste in fashion, if Sparkes‘ peck-flashing silky shirt is anything to go by. But is a questionable clothing item the star of the show this evening? No, because the news on everyone’s lips is that The Hoosiers are still a thing outside of 2007.

With the release of their latest album The Secret Service earlier this month, the pop outfit – minus former bassist Martin Skarendahl – have launched into a sixteen date UK tour, presumably to play Goodbye Mr A repeatedly for an hour, with an encore of Worried About Ray if the crowd are lucky.

All joking aside, The Hoosiers still put on an engaging show, taking a break from the stage mid way through to walk through the audience playing an acoustic version of Bumpy Ride. They’re fun, they’re energetic, they’re surprisingly short and they can write a hell of a catchy pop song – just look to Choices and Worst Case Scenario for some of their best.

[NEWS] THE ROLLING STONES TO RETURN TO LIVE PERFORMANCE

News

It has emerged that The Rolling Stones will make a long-awaited return to live performance this summer.

While speaking to Billboard, Guitarist Ronnie Wood said that “[they] had a meeting in New York with the boys and we’re gonna come [to] North America again in the summer.”

No dates or cities have yet been confirmed for the shows, which will be the band’s first since the death of saxophone player Bobby Keys (aged 70 following a severe battle with cirrhosis of the liver) and the suicide of Jagger’s partner L’Wren Scott in 2014.
