The album's first ever vinyl pressing will be limited to 3,000 copies
Biffy Clyro will make ‘Puzzle’ available on vinyl for the first time for Record Store Day 2015.
Available on double vinyl, their breakthrough 2007 LP will be limited to 3,000 copies and issued exclusively for this year’s Record Store Day on April 18.
Their first album for 14th Floor Records, ‘Puzzles’ became Biffy Clyro’s highest charting release. It peaked at Number Two in the album charts and delivered five hit singles – ‘Saturday Superhouse’, ‘Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies’, ‘Folding Stars’, ‘Machines’ and ‘Who’s Got A Match?’
The band are currently working on the follow-up to 2013’s double-album ‘Opposites’.
Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil recently confirmed the band have 20 songs – which are all 80% written – for their next album.
At the end of last year drummer Ben Johnston told NME that the band will be recording the LP this summer: “It’s coming along; we’re not in any massive rush at all – we don’t want to anything that’s not perfect. We’re working hard – we’ve got too many songs, which is great! A great place to be at.”
Record Store Day, which celebrates the culture of independent record shops, takes place on April 18. Mumford and Sons and Foo Fighters are among the artists who will release exclusive material this year.
However, not all independent labels are in favour of the event. Sonic Cathedral and Howling Owl recently announced details of a new split release, with one copy to be released every day for the next year as a sort-of boycott to the event.
With the full list of scheduled, limited edition releases now online, take a look at NME’s 25 most wanted, including efforts from Run The Jewels, Courtney Barnett, Father John Misty and Brian Wilson.
