Despite implying back in May that the two halves of their new double LP would bear the separate legends ‘The Land At The End Of Our Toes’ and ‘The Sand At The Core Of Our Bones’, Biffy Clyro have now said that the record will have one overall title – ‘Opposites’.
Discussing the band’s sixth studio record yesterday via Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 evening slot, Biffy frontman Simon Neil said: “It’s a strange situation when you’re revealing what you’ve been working on for the past couple of years – it doesn’t get any easier, but it’s still exciting… we’re definitely a bit nervous but we’re very excited”.
Phoning in to premiere ‘Stingin Belle’, the first single to be taken from the dual long-player, Neil said of the track: “It was one of the first songs that really clicked when we were recording it… it represents the record… It shows how over-the-top the record is. It might be our last really over the top record”.
He added: “I think we’ve gone as far as we can. We’re still keeping things musical, still being as weird as we’ve always been”.
Listen to ‘Stingin Belle’, as will surely feature amid the band’s set-list when they play iTunes festival on 22 Sep, via this link.
