Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro are to release not one, but two albums in 2018! After 2016’s last full-length ‘Ellipsis’, the three-piece consisting of Simon Neil and brothers James and Ben Johnston has been touring the world as well as writing new music, of which the latter we will see the results later this year.
The first album will be the soundtrack to a movie, as Neil explained in an interview with Kerrang! The movie will be directed by Jamie Adams and will be ‘based around the songs of an album we’re making. Unfortunately, timing-wise this has impacted our Ellipsis companion record, because there aren’t enough days in the year! The film will be named after the record and will share some dialogue and lyrics. The record will influence the film and then feed back to the music. It’s an unusual way to make a record, and that’s why I am buzzing about it – it’s a different way to feel inspired.’
The second 2018 Biffy Clyro record will be the proper studio album following up Ellipsis.
