Biffy Clyro Announce Documentary Film ‘Cultural Sons Of Scotland’

Biffy Clyro will offer fans an intimate look at the making of their 2021 album, The Myth of the Happily Ever After, with their new documentary, Cultural Sons of Scotland.

The film follows the band as they prepare to work on their ninth album in Ayrshire Farm in the middle of a pandemic.

“In the same part of the world as I wrote my very first song is where we’re making this record, and there’s something really pure about that,” says frontman Simon Neil, while drummer Ben Johnston agrees: “We don’t need all the bells and whistles for us to be fulfilled and happy, we just need the three of us to be making music together and have that vibe in a room – and that’s what keeps our hearts beating.”

“Everyone should join a band,” continues bassist James Johnston. “If you get a chance to go join a band with your brothers or your sisters, or people you consider to be a brother or a sister, that’s probably the best years you’ll ever have in your life.”

The film will be out on Amazon Prime Video and Music Unlimited on February 25th. Check out the trailer below.

Fans in the UK will have a chance to see the film early at one of four exclusive Doc’n Roll screenings on Thursday, February 24th in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, and London. Get tickets here.
