Biffy Clyro, Muse, Opposites
Breakthrough rock band Biffy Clyro have been selected to join Muse on the east coast leg of their nationwide headline tour. The Scottish trio will open on nine dates in April, including two nights at New York City's Madison Square Garden. Full dates are below.
The run will support Biffy's upcoming album Opposites, due out March 12, 2013 in the US via Warner Bros. Records and is available for pre-order starting today here. The first single off Opposites, "Black Chandelier," which Billboard called a "sure-fire Worldwide smash" premiered recently on BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe show and was just added at Sirius XM's Alt Nation. Watch the video for the track here. Fans can download "Black Chandelier" instantly when they pre-order the album, and it is also now available as a single on iTunes.
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 earned the band over 1,000,000 in total album sales and 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."
Biffy have also cemented their status as one of Britain's most exciting live bands, with three recent sold-out UK arena tours, an upcoming arena tour that includes a landmark show at the O2 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."
