Announcing their return the band wrote: “North America, we’ve missed you, it’s been way too long! We can’t wait to come and play for you all again, it’s going to be special…”

The jaunt comes despite the trio being forced to postpone their 2022 European headline tour due to ongoing COVID concerns.

They were due to hit the road in Europe last October for a run of delayed concerts. In June, however, they announced that the gigs were being pushed back again to February/March this year.

But last week, Biffy Clyro told fans that the concerts will now take place between August and October “due to ongoing concerns and restrictions around coronavirus”.

The trio added in a statement: “We are gutted to be moving these dates again, but can’t wait to come out and see everyone when it’s safe to do so. Simon, James & Ben x.”

They had been due to perform a trio of intimate acoustic gigs this month, but those appearances were also postponed due to a rise in coronavirus cases. New dates are said to be “coming soon”.

In June, the trio will top the bill at Edinburgh’s new pop-up venue The Big Top alongside MadnessFatboy Slim and more.
