Following the David Beckham spam to promote May single Manchester Super Reds No.1 Fan, Don Broco have found a new way to wind up the internet with just-released song and video, Gumshield.
To illustrate the track's message about social media, Broco have spent the past few weeks pretending that frontman Rob Damiani is training for a proper fight with UK boxing champion Dave ‘White Rhino’ Allen. But, well, that's not quite the case…
"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," explains the vocalist.
"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!"
