Biffy Clyro finished their “amazing” new album last week
On the red carpet at last night’s BRIT Awards (where they were nominated for British Group but lost out to Little Mix), Simon Neil and Ben and James Johnston told NME that their new LP should be “hopefully out in October”.
“Originally it was going to be completely hand-in-hand,” the frontman said of if this mystery new full-length is considered a “sister record” still. “They do relate, but because we didn’t tour I ended up writing about seven or eight new songs for the album. Originally it was intended to be a few off-cuts from A Celebration Of Endings, but now it’s got wonderful new art and it’s kind of its own beast.”
Describing the content of the album, Simon added, “It’s about that reflection of how you can experience the same thing but react in a completely different way. We’ve all had this huge global experience, but we’ve not had the same experience for many, many reasons – and I feel that’s what the record is about.
“It’s about the aftermath of coming through something together, but also not being able to comprehend what someone else is going through. We’re all trying to make the best of that.”
