Biffy Clyro have vowed to carry on performing shirtless, even when they’re in their mid-50s.

The Ayrshire trio have promised that they'll still be performing in two decades time, even if they stop selling records completely. Frontman Simon Neil said:
I think it's highly likely you will see us at 55 years old with big pot bellies and our shirts off bouncing around the stage, going fucking crazy.

In an interview in The Guardian Neil also said:
Even if we stopped selling records completely, we couldn't stop being in the band. We're a family and why would we want to break this family up? We still have all the passion we ever had and we'll never be on autopilot.

The band recently revealed to NME at Ibiza Rocks that they have around 22 new tracks written for their sixth album, including 'Black Chandelier' and recent addition to their live set, 'The Joke's On Us'.

The band will be heading to the studio in Los Angeles towards the end of the year to record the follow up to 2009's 'Only Revolutions'.

Find out all about Biffy Clyro's plans for their next album in the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now or available digitally.
