Biffy Clyro have wasted no time after the press of their Reading and Leeds headline slot, as they’ve released a new single and announced a new album. Called ‘The Myth of the Happily Ever After’, it’ll be out October 22nd and is billed as a ‘reaction’ to their last LP.
So what do they mean by reaction? Here’s Simon: “This album is a real journey, a collision of every thought and emotion we’ve had over the past eighteen months,” he said. “There was a real fortitude in ‘A Celebration’ but in this record we’re embracing the vulnerabilities of being a band and being a human in this twisted era of our lives.”
Indeed, “Like a lot of creative people, I struggle with dark thoughts. If you’re that way inclined you realise you’re staring at darkness, but you don’t want to succumb. Those moments don’t stop. As the song says, ‘The devil never leaves.’ There’s never a day where you wake up thinking, ‘I feel great, it won’t cross me ever again.’”
They’ve started with the single Unknown Male 01, which is a pleasing 6 minutes.
