Biffy Clyro have announced the release of their next album, Ellipsis set to be released on July 8th. The album follow’s 2013’s Opposites, making it their seventh studio album.
They released their new track “Wolves Of Winter” on Beats 1 by Zane Lowe. Check out the song below.
Speaking to Lowe, singer Simon Neil said: “We’re saying something new with our seventh album… We’re trying to feel like it’s our first album again. We’ve still got balls. We’re still here to get in your face.”
NME notes, “In a press release, Neil says of the new song: “‘Wolves of Winter’ is about us being wolves on a patch and if you come onto that patch, we’ll tear you limb-from-limb.”
Frontman Simon Neil spoke to NME about their forthcoming album, “For the first time ever we’ve been messing around properly with programming, so rather than making the heavy parts heavy with guitars and distortion, we’re trying to find different ways to make things intense.”
Neil continued to say, “This album is going to be the opposite of cinematic. If the last records were kind of Ridley Scott, then this one is more John Waters. It’s quite dirty! We’ve taken a lot of influence from recent hip-hop records, like the latest A$AP Rocky – they’re so fucking good because they’ve got really grimy, dirty, horrible sounds with beautiful vocals, or vice versa. We’re trying to get that balance of things teetering on the edge of chaos the entire time. It’s going to sound like Biffy, but it’s about ‘rocking’ instead of ‘rock’.”
