Biffy Clyro Have Announced A New Film And Soundtrack, Balance, Not Symmetry
Good news, Biffy Clyro fans! The Scottish titans have announced the release date of new film Balance, Not Symmetry – featuring their own original soundtrack.
This means that not only should we be getting a studio album at some point soon, we’ll also get new music in the Jamie Adams-directed movie, which premieres at the Edinburgh Film Festival on June 23.
The band also shared a teaser of Balance, Not Symmetry, which you can watch below.
“It’s for a movie directed by Jamie Adams, based around the songs on an album we’re making,” frontman Simon Neil told Kerrang!. “Unfortunately, timing-wise this has impacted our Ellipsis companion record, because there aren’t enough days in the year! The film will be named after the record and will share some dialogue and lyrics. The record will influence the film and then feed back to the music. It’s an unusual way to make a record, and that’s why I’m buzzing about it – it’s a different way to feel inspired.”
Meanwhile, of the follow-up to Ellipsis, Simon told NME of its potential sound and feel: “Our next album will be a reaction to the acoustic album, it’s going to be like a tight fist. We went on tour for the unplugged record we made, I’ve played a lot of acoustic guitar the past year so I’m ready to plug in and make a racket.”
