Biffy Clyro to debut new track ‘Instant History’ tomorrow

Mon the Biff.

Biffy Clyro have confirmed that they will debut new single ‘Instant History’ tomorrow evening.

The Scottish three-piece have been teasing the arrival of possible new material all month, with the band changing all of their social media profiles to the same shade of cyan last week.

They then began sending cryptic postcards to their fans which includes a mysterious URL on the reverse, which is titled ‘Instant History’.


The latest piece of the puzzle came earlier this week via a new Instagram video which sees frontman Simon Neil painting a shade of cyan on a camera lens, while bandmates James and Ben Johnston look on in the background.

Now, it’s been confirmed that they’ll debut new track ‘Instant History’ at 7.30PM tomorrow on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.

It comes after the band previously confirmed that a new record will arrive in the first half of 2020.

Speaking to NME, bassist James Johnston said: “I think the first half of next year is vague enough! I can tell you that much without getting locked up. We’ve had the MTV Unplugged album and this year we had the Balance of Symmetry soundtrack album.


“By the time this record comes out it’ll be three albums in three years and I think that’s quite a good return.”

Last year Biffy Clyro released their film project Balance, Not Symmetry, which was directed by Jamie Adams, and featured an all-new soundtrack from the band. It premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival in June.

In January, Biffy were announced alongside Harry StylesDua Lipa, in the first wave of acts for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, which will take place in Dundee later this year.
