Bombay Bicycle Club have called the fire which hit the Glasgow School of Art on Friday (May 23) 'heartbreaking'.

Speaking about the incident, which destroyed part of the library as well as students' work, Ed Nash of the band - whose sister attends the famous school - commented to BBC Newsbeat: "It's kind of heartbreaking. I called my sister when it happened and she was almost in tears and talking to people who go to the school, everyone is just devastated." The building was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. "A lot of the interior of the building was destroyed which is such a shame as it is an iconic building... You know Mackintosh, (it is) the prime example of his work," he continued.

The band dedicated the final song of their set at Radio 1's One Big Weekend event yesterday (May 24) to students at the school. The band played on the In New Music We Trust stage at the event in Glasgow, saying that closing track 'Carry Me' was for "all of our friends at the Glasgow School of Art".

Bombay Bicycle Club are also the latest act to speak out about Metallica's position as Glastonbury headliner, saying that they do not think it is a good booking, with Jamie MacColl of the group telling Digitial Spy that he would have preferred a more "left-field" choice for the Pyramid Stage.

"I personally don't think [Metallica are] a very good booking. I think the lineup is a bit disappointing generally. My ideal line-up was Prince, Fleetwood Mac and Kanye West. I wanted a left-field Jay Z option again. I'm sure it will be great though," he said. Bombay Bicycle Club will perform at Glastonbury this year. "We've got a good slot and The Other Stage is probably the best stage at the festival," he said.

The first metal artists to headline Glastonbury in its 44-year history, Metallica headline the Worthy Farm festival on Saturday, June 28 with Arcade Fire the previous night and Kasabian starring on June 29.
