Biffy Clyro have said it feels "poetic" that they will headline T In The Park in July.

The band spoke exclusively to NME as part of this week's new issue, on newsstands now and available digitally.

The band's performance at will be their first headline slot at the Scottish festival, but their 10th appearance at the event overall, more than any other band in the T's 21-year-history.

Discussing their plans for the headline set, frontman Simon Neil says: "We can't headline T at our 10th time of appearing and not have a couple of things up our sleeve. It's Scotland, it's Biffy – it's going to be special. We'd be foolish not to approach this without trying to make it the very best thing we've ever done."

Moving on to how it feels to finally headline the festival, having first played in the tiny T Break Stage in 1999, Neil adds: "T In The Park is kind of like home for the band and it's where we have cut our teeth at every level. It feels poetic that we're going to be headlining it, in our 15th year."
