Biffy Clyro Announce Original Soundtrack For Film Project 'Balance, Not Symmetry'

Wednesday, 15 May 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Biffy Clyro have announced a new film and soundtrack, 'Balance, Not Symmetry'.

Discussing the project with NME, the Scottish trio revealed that they've been working on two new records since the start of the year, including the soundtrack, as well as the script for a collaborative film project with Welsh director Jamie Adams. Vocalist Simon Neil said:

"We’ve been working on a lot of new music. We’re working on two records concurrently at the moment.

"We’re doing one record for a movie which will be filmed once we've finished it. It's this really cool kind of collaboration with this Welsh director called Jamie Adams. He's a fantastic director. He makes some really hilarious movies, but this one will not be funny!

"We're writing the soundtrack and some of the script will come from some of the lyrics in the songs. It's this constantly changing thing at the moment, but we’ve got the songs picked. Then at the same time we’re working on 'Opus 8', which is our working title for the next Biffy album. That's going great and we're just doing what we do."

The soundtrack looks set to feature both acoustic and electric tracks, some hardcore songs and a couple of sprawling rock epics. Talking about the sound, Neil added:

"I see it as six pairs of songs. There are a couple of songs that are acoustic and but Nick Cave-y, there are a couple that are full-on electronic, a couple of songs that are weird hardcore songs, a couple of big epic rock songs, and we’re just trying to approach it in a different way."

The band confirmed via social media that a screening of the film will take place at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 23. Further details on the soundtrack are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.

Biffy Clyro's last full-length album, 'Ellipsis', landed back in 2016.
