Biffy Clyro have revealed that raw sewage has been leaking into their recording studio.

The band have been working on the follow-up to last year's double album 'Opposites' in the Ayrshire farmhouse which they have used for the past decade. However, in an interview with Kerrang they have revealed that the farmhouse currently has a 'plumbing problem'.

"We've got a plumbing problem," said frontman Simon Neil. "There has been raw sewage leaking through a wall. Its gone from being just gross to actually kinda dangerous... maybe the new album will be raw sewage influenced. It might end up sounding like Municipal Waste!"

Speaking further about their next album, Neil confirmed it would be "less orchestral" than 'Opposites'. "It's time for us to move on and do something new," he said. "In a way 'Opposites' has shown us what not to do for the next record. It certainly won't be as expansive or long. It's liberating to know that we couldn't have made a more epic record than the one we just did, but we don't want to repeat that again." The band will headline this year's T In The Park festival in their native Scotland.

Neil discussed the new songs he has been writing earlier this year with NME, saying he has been experimenting with beatboxing, black metal and "stoner-reggae". "I've written about 14 songs," said Neil. "I'm really fucking excited about it at the moment. I don't want people to think the whole album sounds like this, but I've written my first ever beatbox song, and I've written a black metal pop song which I can't wait for people to hear. There's also some cool stoner reggae shit going on, believe it or not. It's really exciting."
