Biffy Clyro bassist James Johnston has admitted to experiencing nerves as the band prepares to debut new material set to feature on their upcoming double album.
“It will be the first or second time we’ll have had a chance to play these songs live,” he told the Daily Record. “It’s quite exciting. It makes me nervous sitting in my living room and thinking about playing these songs live having kept them under wraps for so long.
“That’s always an exciting point, when you come out of the studio with a finished song with the chance to play it to the world. We’re looking forward to that a lot.”
Biffy Clyro are set unleash their new tracks during appearances at this year’s RockNess and Download festivals. Last month, the group’s frontman Simon Neil confirmed their intention to record a double album, telling Q Magazine:
“We’re going to make a double album, so the intention is to do most of the recording in LA and then do more of it elsewhere. We’ll hopefully get it done by April, May and go out and play some shows. The album might come out before summer but it’s likely to be just after that.”
