Biffy Clyro are working on A Celebration Of Endings’ sister record”

Biffy Clyro’s follow-up to 2020’s brilliant A Celebration Of Endings is taking shape”…

Biffy Clyro have revealed that they are hard at work on A Celebration Of Endingssister record”.

The Scottish rock trio are set to follow up last year’s incredible 2020 LP with an accompanying album that has the initials RMV. That, along with the fact that the album is taking shape” and getting serious”, is all we know so far – but we can assure you all that we’ll be spending the next few weeks wondering what RMV could possibly stand for…

Speaking to Kerrang! last year about their headspace going into ACOE, frontman Simon Neil explained, After doing the Unplugged album, we realised we weren’t at that stage yet as a band. We loved doing the Unplugged tour, but I think if anything it made us fall in love with noise again. After releasing Balance, Not Symmetry, we felt responsibility leave us. We went back to work with [Ellipsis producer] Rich Costey for a second time, and things became easier there – your communication becomes a lot more unsaid the more you work with someone. I compare Ellipsis to Blackened Sky and Puzzle, which were the first records we made with those producers [Chris Sheldon and Garth​‘GGGarth’ Richardson] – they’re quite clean records, and you can hear that we’re still feeling each other out. This record feels in line with [2003’s] The Vertigo Of Bliss and Only Revolutions [the second albums from each of the preceding trilogies] – what we’re trying to achieve with this series is beginning to take shape and blossom. We felt fearless, and it’s nice to feel like we’re finding our own way. 

And also, fucking rock music is brilliant. Standing in a room making a shit-ton of noise with your buddies? Nothing beats it, and I think that’s what we’ve rediscovered.”

Biffy were recently confirmed to headline next year’s Download Festival alongside KISS and Iron Maiden.
