Biffy Clyro Set October Release For New Project 'The Myth Of The Happily Ever After'

Friday, 03 September 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Biffy Clyro have shared details of a new project, 'The Myth Of The Happily Ever After'.

The record will arrive on October 22 and is described by the band as "a reaction" to their 2020 album, 'A Celebration Of Endings'. Vocalist and guitarist Simon Neil said:

"This is a reaction to 'A Celebration of Endings'. This album is a real journey, a collision of every thought and emotion we’ve had over the past eighteen months. There was a real fortitude in 'A Celebration' but in this record we’re embracing the vulnerabilities of being a band and being a human in this twisted era of our lives.

"Even the title is the polar opposite. It’s asking, do we create these narratives in our own minds to give us some security when none of us know what’s waiting for us at the end of the day?"

As a preview, the Scottish rockers have shared the first single, Unknown Male 01, an expansive six-minute epic that twists and turns around their bruising style as well as dipping into the softer side of their sound. Lyrically, it reflects on friends who have taken their own lives.

Neil added: "When you lose people that you love deeply and have been a big part of your life, it can make you question every single thing about your own life. Like a lot of creative people, I struggle with dark thoughts. If you’re that way inclined you realise you’re staring at darkness, but you don't want to succumb. Those moments don’t stop. As the song says, ‘The devil never leaves.’ There’s never a day where you wake up thinking, ‘I feel great, it won’t cross me ever again."

Biffy Clyro returned to the stage at the end of August, playing Dreamland Margate and headlining the Reading and Leeds festivals. They have a concert at Cardiff Bay's Alexandra Head on September 16, where they'll be joined by Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, and a gig at Glasgow Green later in the month. In the autumn, they'll hit the road for their rescheduled The Fingers Crossed Tour
