Biffy Clyro perform for 'MTV Unplugged'

Biffy Clyro announce huge UK acoustic tour and ‘MTV Unplugged’ album

The band tell NME what to expect

Biffy Clyro have announced the release of their new ‘MTV Unplugged’ album along with details of a UK acoustic tour. Watch part one of our video interview with the band above.

Following in the legendary footsteps of the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Oasis and REM, the band will be releasing the live album of their MTV Unplugged show at The Roundhouse in London on May 25, when their performance will also premiere on MTV. Meanwhile, Biffy have also been hard at work on many other things…

“We’ve been working on a lot of new music,” frontman Simon Neil told NME of their year so far. “We’re working on two records concurrently at the moment.

“We’re doing one record for a movie which will be filmed once we’ve finished it. It’s this really cool kind of collaboration with this Welsh director called Jamie Adams. He’s a fantastic director. He makes some really hilarious movies, but this one will not be funny!”
