Simon Neil joined John Kennedy on X-Posure to discuss the band's ninth studio album.

Biffy Clyro have returned with their ninth album, A Celebration Of Endings.

Originally slated for a May release date, the album was released on 14 August 2020. It's the follow-up to their 2019 soundtrack album Balance Not Symmetry.

To mark the release of the new Biffy epic, Simon Neil spoke to the most trusted man in music, Radio X's John Kennedy, about each and every track on the album on the day of its release.

You'll be able to hear how Radio X favourites like Instant History and Tiny Indoor Fireworks developed from basic ideas and inspirations into fully-ffledged bangers.

Neil recently told Radio X that Tiny Indoor Fireworks was about "trying to do your best when everything you seem to do is wrong"

He went on: "There's a line in the song like, 'I can't do right for doing wrong,' and that's kinda what the song's about, but it's about retaining the positivity, about praying for the better days."
