Biffy Clyro Are Teasing New Music

But what does #ThisIsTheSoundThatWeMake mean?

While we already know that fans can (hopefully) expect a new Biffy Clyro record to arrive in the “first half” of 2020, it looks like the Scottish titans could be gearing up to unveil their highly-anticipated album sooner rather than later.

Over the past week, the trio – Simon Neil, and James and Ben Johnston – have been up to some seriously cryptic stuff, not only changing their social media profiles to a couple of very specific shades of blue and a pinky-orange, but also sending fans mysterious postcards of the same colours linking to a URL called Instant History.

Now, the teasing is reaching new peaks, as Biffy have released a 30-second clip also titled Instant History, along with the accompanying hashtag #thisisthesoundthatwemake. This new video – which sees Simon painting the camera lens blue as James and Ben stand still behind him – is soundtracked by some brilliant-sounding cinematic instrumentals, before the drums kick in and you get the feeling there’s a huge Biffy-esque explosion of alt.rock to come. Arghhhhh…

While we wait for the band to put us out of our misery and reveal the follow-up to 2016’s Ellipsis, in other Biffy news the trio were recently confirmed for this year’s BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

“We are delighted to be appearing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee,” enthused Simon. “We have had a wonderful relationship with Radio 1 over the years and it is always a highlight to play at the festival. We cannot wait!”

“Radio 1 is nothing without its listeners,” added Radio 1 Breakfast show host Greg James. “We rely on them getting involved in every show so to repay them for this, we love putting on a massive festival with our favourite artists – and this year we’ve got a brilliant opportunity to shout about our Scottish listeners and demonstrate how much we love them. I can’t wait to be made to apologise for the first, ‘Here we, here we… etc.’ that we hear on air.”
