Biffy Clyro confirm release date for eighth studio album

Scottish alt-rockers Biffy Clyro have confirmed that their eagerly-awaited eighth album will be released in the “first half” of 2020.

The Ayrshire band revealed they were back in the studio last month, sharing a video of lead singer Simon Neil laying down vocals in Los Angeles.

Speaking to music magazine NME, bassist James Johnston confirmed that Biffy fans won’t have long to wait long to hear the band’s new material.

When pushed for a release date, Johnston said: “I think the first half of next year is vague enough! I can tell you that much without getting locked up.

“We’ve had the MTV Unplugged album and this year we had the Balance of Symmetry soundtrack album.

“By the time this record comes out it’ll be three albums in three years and I think that’s quite a good return.”

Johnston was tight-lipped about what fans can expect, but did say the band are “in the trenches” as they continue work on the follow-up to 2016’s Ellipsis.

“We’re feeling in a really great place and it shows that we’re still hungry to make music,” Johnston said of their forthcoming album.
