Biffy Clyro Delay Album Release Until August
British stadium rockers Biffy Clyro have postponed the release of their new album, A Celebration Of Endings.
The trio’s ninth album was scheduled for release on May 15, but the onsale date has now been moved to August 14 due to ongoing concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
“After careful consideration over the past few weeks, we’ve made the difficult decision to move the release of A Celebration of Endings back to August 14,” say the band in a joint statement.
“With all of the turmoil and anxiety that the coronavirus situation is causing in everyone’s lives, we decided that it would have felt wrong to have continued with our original release plan. Music is of course important, but there are bigger issues at stake right now.
“We know that many of you will be as disappointed as we are, but we feel this is the right thing to do.
But it’s not all bad news for Biffy fans, as frontman Simon Neil will be performing a handful of songs on Facebook Live today (March 27) at 6pm UK time.
“We’ve always been honoured by the passion that fans have shown for our band and community. As a small token of our gratitude, we’d love for you to join us today,” say the band.
Biffy will tour the UK later this year, catch them at a date below.
