Biffy Clyro Share Snarling New Single ‘Flammable’

As they slash and burn their way through the creation of their seventh studio album, Ellipsis, Kilmarnock three-piece Biffy Clyro have unleashed a snarling example of what’s what for us with new track Flammable.

Flammable is framed in the band’s trademark brooding harmonies and surgically-precise riffage but it’s a new beast altogether, compared to anything from 2013’s Opposites. Dare I say, Biffy Clyro have an axe to grind with Ellipsis, so we can expect a degree of carnage come its Friday, 9th July release date.

Things did seem to get a little rocky for the band off the back of their 2013 album with a series of live performances called off due to frontman Simon Neil’s health concerns. In the months after, Neil would go onto tell NME that he was in a horrible headspace when he began writing the new album, with a fair few people close to the musician passing away.

“It’s just the way I am. I’m always going have a bit of trouble convincing in here [taps his head] that everything’s going alright, when it is going alright. I needed to shed a skin in a serious way last year. We’d done more things than I could ever have dreamed of and I still felt slightly unfulfilled and unhappy.”

Now just we can just strap ourselves in and wait for that inevitable and amazing tour announcement.
