biffy clyro Set Digital Release and Tour With Manchester Orchestra
Produced by Garth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and mixed by Andy Wallace (Coldplay, Nirvana, Faith No More), the fifth release from the Scottish trio also features the orchestration of multi Grammy-winning composer David Campbell. Only Revolutions came out in the UK November 9, 2009 to chart success and critical acclaim. It is already certified gold in the UK, and the Sunday Times, Kerrang and Q each gave it four stars, with The Guardian declaring, " their songs pack a punch, but are full of light, shade and sophistication." The first UK single off the album, "Mountains" is a top 5 radio hit that has sold over 100,000 copies, and their current UK single, "Many of Horror" is rapidly climbing the charts: it is #6 on the national airplay chart. "Mountains" will impact at US radio on February 9, 2010.
To support the release, biffy clyro will head out with Manchester Orchestra on a nationwide US tour. The month-long string of dates kicks off March 6th in Tempe, AZ and runs through April 9th in Columbia, SC. The tour comes on the heels of a successful UK headlining tour, including a sold out performance at London's Brixton Academy.
biffy clyro formed in 1995 and quickly began honing their unique sound, a mind-boggling mix of off-kilter tempos, itchy, unpredictable guitars, soulful choruses and feral screams. Years of relentless touring built a dedicated army of followers and turned biffy clyro into one of the most celebrated live bands in the UK: they've shared the stage with Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Linkin Park, opened a colossal Wembley Stadium show with Muse and became the first band ever to play in the Houses of Parliament. They've begun to win over US fans as well, on recent tours with Queens of the Stone Age, Editors and Say Anything.
