VIDEO NEWS: Don Broco Release Video For New Single ‘Gumshield’
Don Broco have released the music video for their latest single Gumshield. The track is taken from their forthcoming album Amazing Things which is set for release on 17th September 2021 via SharpTone Records.
The video features UK British Heavyweight champion Dave ‘White Rhino’ Allen and in the run up to its release fans saw lead singer Rob Damiani documenting his boxing training regime for the fight against Allen. But like fans suspected, all was not as it seems…
Damiani explains: “Excited to share our new song & video for ‘Gumshield’! After Tom’s fake wedding for the last album and the Beckham fan account hacking on our Instagram before ‘Manchester Super Reds’ we wanted to bow out on one final prank. After seeing all these YouTubers try their hand at boxing we thought it would be an interesting experiment to see if we could convince people I was deluded enough myself to fight a professional boxer. The song itself is about the anxiety that comes with posting online and the fear of resulting arguments so the divisive nature of my entrance to the sport personally hit all those triggers for me!” He adds: “Teaming up with Dave Allen on this was so much fun, hilarious guy and proper top bloke, though think I could definitely have him if we ever had a real fight ;)”
Whilst Allen comments: “It has been a great experience working with the Don Broco team on the music video, a great bunch of lads who are very innovative and smart, Rob can’t actually fight though x.”
Gumshield follows previous single Manchester Super Reds No.1 Fan, both of which will feature on Don Broco’s fourth album Amazing Things which is available to pre-order now from HERE.
