Biffy Clyro Double Down on 2018 Albums, Plan Disc Tied to Movie
2018 will certainly be a busy year for Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro. The group, who have enjoyed continued airplay for music off their 2016 Ellipsis album, will be working on a pair of projects this year.
Speaking with Kerrang, vocalist Simon Neil stated, "We're working on two records! One is for a movie directed by Jamie Adams, based around the songs on an album we're making. Unfortunately, timing-wise, this has impacted our Ellipsis companion record, because there aren't enough days in the year."
The film-based project really has the guys energized, with Neil stating, "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. It will be out later in 2018, and then it’ll be Biffy opus eight!”
With new music definitely on the horizon for the band, that means their tour schedule is a little light for 2018. At present, they only have a trio of Australian dates in April on the docket, but nothing else scheduled.
