Believe it or not, “bright new force in British rock” Don Broco have been named as headliners-most-high of 2015’s Kerrang! Tour.

Featuring self-proclaimed weird kids of pop-punk We Are The In Crowd as openers, it is, it’s safe to say even at this deeply pre-emptive stage, going to be the event of the year. If not of all time.

Here are the dates, tickets giving access to which will be available from Friday till they’re gone.

6 Feb: Norwich, UEA LCR
7 Feb: Leeds, Academy
9 Feb: Southampton, Guildhall
10 Feb: Bristol, Academy
11 Feb: Dublin, Academy
13 Feb: Cardiff, Uni Great Hall
14 Feb: Manchester, Academy
15 Feb: Newcastle, Academy
16 Feb: Glasgow, Academy
18 Feb: Liverpool, Academy
19 Feb: Birmingham, Academy
20 Feb: London, The Forum

And here is a very ‘psyched’ speech made recently by the entire band (Don Broco that is), speaking at the same time: “We are absolutely gagging for this tour to come about already! We’ve been busy writing our new album and can’t wait to unleash these new songs for the first time, plus it’s going to be amazing having the WATIC guys along. We’ve got to see them play at various festivals over the last few years and they totally kill it, will be awesome to get to watch em every night! It’s a massive honour for us to be headlining a tour we’ve seen so many of our heroes play when we’ve been there as punters, so to be looking out from on stage this time will be an incredible feeling”.

Taking the talking stick off the DB boys, Kerrang! Editor James McMahon adds: “Last year was a blast. And standing side of stage for Limp Bizkit, a band I truly love, was both a thrill and an honour. But, with this year being the tenth anniversary of the tour, we’ve decided to return to the very essence of what it has always been about. New rock music. The music that roars out of the pages of the magazine each week, out of the airwaves, and the screens of TV, demanding your attention. You will not find four hotter rock bands on the planet right now than Don Broco, We Are The In Crowd, and… well, wait and see”.

Indeed. This is a clip of Don Broco playing the BBC Radio 1/NME Stage at this year’s Reading Festival.
