How did you get involved with the Teenage Cancer Trust?
“We got the call from them a few weeks ago and we've been big fans of Teenage Cancer Trust and the work they do for a few years now. We've got all these random bits of broken memorabilia that we've accumulated through our career that we’ve auctioned off for them before. I think one of the best things we've ever auctioned off was our Pretty wedding suits from the video and what we wore onstage at Ally Pally. The response we got from that was incredible, and our fanbase is super-supportive of the causes we support. It was just really nice to help them out in that way. So, to take that to the next level now and actually do a concert and collaborate with them is even better.”
The concert series also features the likes of YUNGBLUD, Liam Gallagher, Madness and more. How does it feel to be included alongside those names?
“We are super-excited to be part of this line-up! There’s a lot of our heroes on it who are the reason we’re doing music today. Liam Gallagher, in particular, he was probably one of the first ever musicians I remember seeing and thinking, ‘Wow, I want to do that.’ I remember it so vividly; it must’ve been in school and I remember us learning Wonderwall thinking I was an absolute legend because I knew the words! So yeah, having Don Broco on a line-up as strong as that and seeing your name on the same poster as those acts is just insane.”
You’ve recently had more good news, with Amazing Things hitting Number One. That must feel pretty special – especially given the album came out digitally last year?
“Yeah, I am super-proud. I'll never forget that moment of getting the phone call and realising that we've got that. I had this feeling of being so grateful to our fans – it was that feeling of, ‘Wow, we really did this together.’ It was a feeling of appreciation to all the hard work we've put in for all these years and that our fans are there with us. It was just overwhelming. It’s kind of quite silly, this whole chart position, because it doesn’t mean everything but somehow it still does mean a lot when you've kind of got that statue and what it represents. It’s not just one album but it’s a whole career of hard work leading to that point.”
