The trio are currently working on their eighth LP
Biffy Clyro have shared images of them working on their upcoming new album – check out the post below.
The Scottish band’s last full-length LP ‘Ellipsis‘ arrived back in 2016, landing at Number 26 on NME‘s Albums of The Year list. It spawned the singles ‘Wolves of Winter’, ‘Re-Arrange’, and ‘Howl’.
The Simon Neil-fronted band, who are scheduled to headline Isle of Wight Festival this summer, have now offered fans a glimpse of themselves working on their new material.
Posting two black and white shots of the trio in the studio on Instagram, Biffy Clyro wrote in the caption: “It’s getting hot in this kitchen, prepping for album #8.” The snaps show Ben and James Johnston behind laptops and a sampler, as Neil plays piano and synth.
Speaking to NME about the upcoming new record late last year, the frontman suggested that the next record could head in a heavier direction, following their unplugged album and tour.
“Our next album will be a reaction to the acoustic album, it’s going to be like a tight fist,” said Neil. “We went on tour for the unplugged record we made, I’ve played a lot of acoustic guitar the past year so I’m ready to plug in and make a racket.”
Previously, the band teased plans to release two new records. “We’ve been working on a lot of new music,” the singer revealed. “We’re working on two records concurrently at the moment.”
