Don Broco will headline The Roadmender in May as part of a run of new dates which the band has added to their UK tour.

The Bedford quartet released their third album Technology in February and kicked off their UK shows with a hometown gig at the town’s Corn Exchange.

They will headline the Roadmender on Wednesday, May 2. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday, February 23, via http://myticket.co.uk/artists/don-broco

Released to widespread critical acclaim earlier this month, Technology became the band’s second Top 10 album and first to break the Top 5.

After selling out both their Alexandra Palace gig last year to more than 10,000 fans and their current tour, Don Broco will head to Northampton after their upcoming US tour as part of nine new shows which have been announced.

Matranga played a set of acoustic songs, partly part picked by fans, from across his career as well as reading short passages from this new book Alone Rewinding, which tells the last 20 years of the singer’s life raising his daughter and making music.

In the last few years, Matranga has previously played in Kettering and at The Lab in Northampton and has always been on cracking form, and Friday night no different. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Far’s iconic album Water & Solutions and Matranga hinted during the set he’s hoping to return to the UK later this year to celebrate the record.
