Biffy Clyro open up about the follow-up to Opposites
Biffy Clyro have given an update on their plans for the follow-up to their 2013 album Opposites.
Speaking to hmv.com at the MTV EMAs on Sunday night (November 9th), bassist James Johnston and drummer Ben Johnston said that the band had made a start on new material, but would begin in earnest next year.
Asked how the album was going, James Johnston said: "We have made a start. We find it difficult to work whilst we're on the road so when the touring finishes we'll start in earnest next year. We can't wait though, we feel like we've got a lot to say and we're as energised as we've ever been as a band. We can't wait to get on with it."
Then asked if the band would make something shorter this time after putting out a double album last time, Ben Johnston added: "It's going to have to be shorter, it can't be any longer. We'll go for the more succicnt rocking album. I don't want to say too much, because everything always changes, and by the time the album comes out, we might be a reggae band..."
Opposites, which you can preview on the right hand side of the page, was released in January 2013 and is the band's sixth album.
