Don Broco have dropped the arena-ready single 'Half Man Half God' ahead of the biggest show of their career, headlining The SSE Arena, Wembley on February 9.
Listen to 'Half Man Half God':
The electronic rock group's new song tackles what it is to be a celebrity in the world of social media and how fans much prefer to know the real person - not the god-like "airbrushed" version. Lead singer Rob Damiani explained: “This is a song about celebrity in the age of the Internet. People don’t just want to admire their idols from afar, they want to know everything about them.
"Every waking moment, every thought and feeling, every hope and fear.
"These days we want our celebrities human.
"We don’t want mystery, we don’t want airbrushing, we want real, we want full access, we want communication, and most importantly we want selfies.” The song follows the release of the band's Top 5 album 'Technology', which came out less than a year ago.
The past 12 months has seen Rob and co support Linkin Park star Mike Shinoda on his US tour, open for 30 Seconds to Mars and tour Asia. The band will play two sold-out dates at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse on February 1 and February 2, with their UK leg cumulating in what promises to be a show of epic proportions at Wembley's 12,500-capacity arena. The final few remaining tickets for the UK tour are available here. The UK shows (with Neck Deep & Issues in support) are as follows: 1/2 – Manchester, Victoria Warehouse *SOLD OUT* 2/2 – Manchester, Victoria Warehouse *SOLD OUT* 3/2 – Plymouth, Pavillions 5/2 – Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena 7/2 – Edinburgh, Usher Hall 8/2 – Nottingham, Motorpoint 9/2 – London, SSE Wembley Arena
