Breakthrough rock band Biffy Clyro have announced the US release of their new album, Opposites, on March 12, 2013 via Warner Bros Records. A deluxe double album with "making-of" documentary will be available the same day. The first single off Opposites, "Black Chandelier," premiered today on Radio 1's Zane Lowe show. Listen to it here!
Produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers) in Los Angeles, CA, Opposites is the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Only Revolutions, which sold over 800,000 copies worldwide and earned a Mercury Prize nomination. The Sunday Times, Kerrang and Q each gave it four stars, Esquire labeled it "a blistering triumph" and the NME declared that the release "springs the band instantly level with the greatest rock acts in the world."
The Scottish trio has also cemented their status as one of Britain's most exciting live bands, with three recent sold-out UK arena tours, including a landmark show at Wembley Arena, and headlining festival slots. They won "Best Live Band" awards from both NME and Q in 2011, and their September performance at the iTunes Festival in London led Kerrang to declare them "The best live band in Britain."
US fans will get a sneak-peek at Biffy's new songs with sold-out intimate club shows in NYC at Bowery Electric on December 3rd and at Satellite in LA on December 6th.
