Biffy Clyro

The Scottish band share details of their upcoming seventh album.

Biffy Clyro have teased details about the sound of their latest album.

The Scottish three-piece have been working on the follow-up to their 2013 Opposites LP, and it looks like they're pushing themselves harder than ever.

"I want to make a record that sounds like Deafheaven meets Tears for Fears meets Death Grips," frontman Simon Neil told DIY. ""I don’t know if we’ll get anywhere near it, but that’s the three touchstones of songwriting and sonic architecture that I want us to try and go for.”

He added: "I truly believe that we’re doing something on this record that we haven’t ever tried to do before. We’re really trying to fuck with the sound of what we do, and we’re not trying to do it as a live band in a room."

With the band set to be on the road again next year, could it be curtains for them trying to perform the new album live?

Doubtful, since the band have announced a string of European dates already, including a stint at next year's Download Festival in France.
