If you read SKOA regularly you'll be well aware that I've been more than a little excited for new material from Scotland three-piece power house, Biffy Clyro. There was that support slot with Foo Fighters at Milton Keynes back in 2011... remember that? Then I was lucky enough to see them at a rather small show (for them) in London's Roundhouse just a few months back in 2012. They're new release is now set for release on January 28th and I for one am quivering with excitement.
Even more so now after hearing two sneak peaks via French Radio station RTL2. On Monday, they played three new Biffy songs in quick succession. First up was "Black Chandelier" which we're more than familiar with by now then came two glorious unheard snippets of joy. First up was "Biblical" which to me sounds a little more dancey, think Muse's "Follow Me" toned down a bit with the drum sound and you'll be half way there. It's easier to just hit play below.
Then came "Little Hospitals" and this is when the smile on my face grew ear to ear and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. I'm legitimately still smiling while typing this. I have a feeling this album is going to launch Biffy into the stratosphere of popularity and with them supporting Muse on their American stint later in the year they're sure to gain some new fans Stateside too. Good on you lads.
To listen to the new track you can head over to the RTL website here. The new stuff starts at around 44 minutes. Hit play, skip to that mark, turn it up and let the hairs on the back of your neck rise.
Opposites is set to be released on January 28th, make sure you pick it up!
