Biffy Clyro have just recently released their amazing powerhouse of a single, ‘That Golden Rule’. A riff heavy, melodic slice of whats to come from their new album, tentatively titled ‘Only Revolutions’. As of yet the fifth studio album from the band does not have a confirmed release date, but we know it will be some time in November. So how does a band like Biffy Clyro go from a small underground noise act to a behemoth of sound in a space of a few years, well let me tell you.
Uber indie frontman Thom York announced via Radiohead’s blog that more of his work would soon be made available to the masses thirsty for the band’s songwriting talents. The two new singles are called : “Feeling pulled apart by Horses” and “The Hollow Earth“ Here’s what Radioheads’s post said:
“This is to inform you of the release of two more bits of work shortly. They are loosely under the Thom Yorke name this time, although these days its all getting kind of blurry. Feeling Pulled Apart by Horses is written & played by Jonny and I and is a radical rework of an old tune thats been kicking around without a home since 2001? i think. The Hollow Earth is a bass menace that was born out of the Eraser period but needed a little more time.”
The official release date for the two tunes which were produced byNigel Godrich and mastered by Bob Ludwigis October 6th, Thom reveals. They’ll be released on 12″ with sliced sleeve from Stanley and Tchok and will be available from September 21 from the w.a.s.t.e section of the Radiohead website, accompanied by a free download.
Despite being one of the favourites, Glasvegas frontman James Allen has revealed he would be happier if the Scottish band missed out on the prestigious Mercury Music Prize.
Speaking in today’s Daily Star newspaper, Allen said: “I keep hearing that Florence (Florence Welch of Florence & The Machine) wants us to win but I like the idea of the band being up for the award however would prefer it everyone got the same thing. If it’s recognising what a band have done then I feel a wee bit uncomfortable. I was never in a band and writing songs to be a winner above other people – it’s so subjective. The beauty is in the ear of the beholder.”
“If we win then there will be some people saying: ‘I fucking hate Glasvegas; somebody else should have won it’. If you win does it mean you’re better? Maybe my mum thinks that but not everybody else. I know I shouldn’t think about it too much but I feel uncomfortable.”
Also, guitarist Rab Allen told the newspaper who he thought would win: “I want, and think, The Invisible will win – they are such sweet guys.”
Florence & The Machine’s debut album ‘Lungs’ is the current favourite to win the prize, which will be handed out at a ceremony on September 8th.
