Having recently announced details of their eagerly anticipated new album ‘A Celebration of Endings’, Biffy Clyro now reveal details of their first full-scale UK arena tour since 2016. The “champions of stadium rock” (The Guardian) start the tour with two huge shows in Scotland, and the schedule also includes a welcome return to Utilita Arena Newcastle.
The news follows the release of two very different songs from the new album. The apocalyptic synths and bombastic beats of lead track ‘Instant History’ demonstrated the band’s continuing evolution, while the instant grat track ‘End Of’ presented a mix of their visceral roots and their ongoing flair for unpredictability.
The reaction demonstrates that Biffy Clyro remain at the top of the powers. ‘Instant History’ was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World and was added straight to Radio 1’s B-list. It also went straight to the A-list at Absolute, Radio X and Virgin. And then ‘End Of’ was premiered by Zane Lowe at Beats 1.
Biffy Clyro’s approach to making ‘A Celebration of Endings’ was simple. Keep things fresh and maintain the wide-eyed wonder of what they do. Surprise themselves and each other. Push things to their furthest extremes. Their first building block in embracing the new was to turn to an old friend. In came Rich Costey, producer of ‘Ellipsis’.
“This is a very forward-looking album from a personal perspective and a societal perspective,” explains frontman Simon Neil. Sonically, Biffy Clyro playfully push the outer reaches of their sound to the extreme – often in the case of the same song.
‘A Celebration of Endings’ is the band’s eighth record and follows their previous two studio albums – ‘Ellipsis’ (2016) and ‘Opposites’ (2013) – both of which went straight to #1 on the Official Albums Chart.
Statement from Biffy Clyro - 5pm Monday 16 March 2020
Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we have decided to delay ticket sales for the forthcoming UK, European and Australian tours until a later date. If you have already pre-ordered, you will still be in the presale. We are still very much looking forward to the tour and while the dates and venues remain unaffected, we feel that due to the current uncertainty the time is not right to make tickets available.
We Send everyone our love. Please take care of each other. Stay safe and healthy.
Simon, James and Ben X
