    Biffy Clyro news 

    The new single ‘Bubbles’ released April 26th on 14th Floor Records – Featuring Queen of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme

    “Springs the band instantly level with the greatest rock acts in the world.” – NME

    “There are those talking of this record as an ascent to the mainstream. It would be a rare and welcome thing indeed if a band with the depths Biffy Clyro possess could achieve such ubiquity.” – Kerrang!

    “A supremely confident, passionate and gritty work which proves the Ayrshire trio are now among rock’s heavyweights.” – The Sun

    “A huge, polished brute of a record. The melodies are instant… this is a big, obvious, step forward.” – The Guardian

    Hot on the heels of their recent NME Award, Biffy Clyro release the new single ‘Bubbles’ on April 26th on 14th Floor Records. Released to coincide with their imminent UK tour, the single is taken from their current album ‘Only Revolutions’ that debuted in the Top 10 and has since sold 250,000 copies in the UK alone.

    A fiery concoction of aggressive melodies, compelling hooks and a blistering closing jam, ‘Bubbles’ features a special guest in the shape of Josh Homme who contributes additional guitar to the track. Their friendship was cemented when Biffy Clyro toured Europe and North America as support to Homme’s Queens of the Stone Age.

    Someone like Josh, it’s like he’s a musical lifer,” says vocalist/guitarist Simon Neil. “We are as well, and I think when you meet people you can see in their eyes whether they really mean it or not. It’s kind of weird being friends with someone who’s a hero like Josh, but I see in him what I see in myself and he sees in us what he saw in himself, that kind of hunger and willingness and doing it for the right reasons. It’s really easy to connect with people because of that.”

    ‘Bubbles’ will be released on CD and two vinyl formats, with b-sides to be confirmed.

    Biffy Clyro’s prior UK tour included two rapturously received homecoming shows at Glasgow’s Barrowload and concluded at London’s Brixton Academy. Their upcoming tour, listed below, concludes with another sizeable London date at Hammersmith Apollo:

    April

    29th – Perth, Concert Hall

    30th – Sheffield, O2 Academy

    May

    1st – Blackpool, Empress Ballroom

    3rd – Leicester, De Montfort Hall

    4th – Portsmouth, Guildhall

    5th – Bristol, Colston Hall

    6th – London, Hammersmith Apollo

    In addition, Biffy Clyro will also play the Isle of Wight and T in the Park festival. Further festival dates are likely to be announced in the coming weeks.

    N-Dubz confuse the United Statez 

    N-Dubz have reportedly been struggling to make themselves understood during their current trip to the US.

    The Camden trio are said to have confused Americans with their thick London accents and urban slang.

    The group are currently in Los Angeles meeting Def Jam record label bosses about securing a Stateside deal.

    According to The Sun, ‘Playing With Fire’ collaborator Mr. Hudson is staying in a nearby hotel and has been showing them around the city.

    N-Dubz recently claimed that they are confident about their prospects of cracking the US market.

    I don’t understand them either…
