Scottish trio join Usher, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Jack White at the month-long event
The Scottish trio are currently putting the finishing touches to their sixth studio album and are expected to release it later this year. It is presently untitled, but is expected to be a double LP. You can watch a trailer for the album at the bottom of the page.
Biffy Clyro will headline London’s Roundhouse on September 22 and join the likes of Jack White, Usher, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and One Direction in being confirmed for the festival, with more acts set to be confirmed across the coming weeks.
A number of support acts for various events have also been announced. Swedish indie troupe The Soundtrack Of Our Lives will open for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on September 12 while Josh Kumra will open for Labrinth on September 14. Biffy Clyro themselves will be supported by fellow Scots Frightened Rabbit.
The series of shows will run from September 1–30 – moving from its previous staging in July. Every gig will be at London’s Roundhouse. In 2011, the likes of Coldplay, Manic Street Preachers, Chase and Status, My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, Noah And The Whale and Foo Fighters all played the month-long free event.
