Scottish rock sensations Biffy Clyro have confirmed that they have finished work on their ninth album, which will act as the sister record to last year’s ‘A Celebration Of Endings’.
The follow-up to ‘A Celebration Of Endings’ was teased back in March and is expected to be released later this year.
When interviewed on the red carpet at the 2021 BRIT Awards this week, frontman Simon Neil had this to say.
“Originally it was going to be completely hand-in-hand. 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.
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.”
More details surrounding the band’s ninth full-length album will be confirmed as they develop.
