2019 also saw you immortalised in plastic toy form for the single ACTION – that must’ve been cool?
“It was insane! To go from the initial idea and then see it realised was incredible. In order for them to make the models we had to have 360 degree scans of our heads, which was pretty cool. It’s like a childhood dream to be turned into an action figure. The amount of stick we got from our fans about the figures not being available to buy was overwhelming. We did look into it, but it’s so expensive to make them, particularly in limited quantities. We have, however, found a way to get them produced as a hand-crafted merch item, so we should be able to offer them to fans as a limited edition run soon. I’m keen to get mine, so I can put it on my mantelpiece!”
Looking ahead to this year, you’re headlining Slam Dunk Festival in May. How are you feeling about that?
“We’re not feeling the pressure too much, because we’ve not had a chance to think about it yet. At the moment, all we’re thinking about writing new music, but we’ll get our shit together and dust off the cobwebs. We want to put together the most incredible set we can, and we’ll have a few surprises up our sleeves. The idea is to play some new music at Slam Dunk. We’re writing the next album at the moment, so we’re excited to debut new material at the festival. The stuff we’ve been coming up with recently has me so excited. I’m envisioning these songs going off at Slam Dunk – I’m pumped for it!”
Don Broco will headline this year's Slam Dunk festivals in Leeds and Hatfield, taking place on May 23 and 24 respectively. Get your tickets here.
