Band record light hearted cover during visit to Radio 1's Live Lounge
The Scottish band performed the cover on Radio 1’s Live Lounge, adopting comedy voices for the chorus and barely making it through the song without bursting out laughing. ‘Diane Young’ features on Vampire Weekend’s 2013 album ‘Modern Vampires of the City’ and was released as a single in March.
Biffy Clyro will headline this weekend’s Reading and Leeds Festival alongside Green Day and Eminem, marking the first time they have topped the bill at the festival. Speaking about what he expects to be the highlight of the bash, festival organiser Melvin Benn recently told NME that he is looking forward to seeing a British act headline for their first time.
“The most special moment for me will be when Biffy take the stage as headliners at Reading and Leeds. They are one of the bands that cut their teeth at Reading and Leeds. They sharpened themselves in front of those audiences. They are a band who are at a point where they wanted to headline for a little while. They’ve been knocking on the door. They’re a great British band.”
Other names on the Reading and Leeds line-up include Nine Inch Nails, who will return to perform at the festival for the first time since 2007, plus Foals, Frank Turner, Deftones, and System Of A Down. The NME/Radio One stage will be headlined by Skrillex, Alt-J and Phoenix. Other acts playing include A$AP Rocky, Major Lazer, Jake Bugg, Tame Impala, Azealia Banks, Disclosure, Peace, Palma Violets, Fidlar and HAIM.
