Biffy Clyro are back! Hear 'Wolves of Winter' from new album 'Ellipsis'

Hear the lead single from their long-awaited new album, out in July.

It’s finally here. Biffy Clyro have returned with new single ‘Wolves of Winter’.

The track debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show as a World Record and it’s taken from new album ‘Ellipsis’, out 8th July.

“I think we’re saying something new with our seventh album,” Simon Neil says, speaking to Zane Lowe. One thing’s for sure - ‘Wolves of Winter’ is a fearless, ever-shifting monster that’s come out to play.

“For the first time, we wanted to use the studio as an instrument, to make it feel like it was part of the band,” Simon adds. “We’re trying to feel like it’s our first album again. We’ve still got balls. We’re still here to get in your face.”

In addition to the new track and album news bonanza, Biffy Clyro have announced a huge Glasgow show. Set to take place on August 27th, it’ll see the band take to Bellahouston Park, with Fall Out Boy as support. That’s the same weekend as the pair of them co-headline Reading & Leeds.

Simon Neil’s promise that the record would sound like a Deafheaven, Tears For Fears and Death Grips smoothie might not be too far-fetched. For that bonkers insight and a whole load more, catch up with our in-the-studio feature with the band.

New track ‘On A Bang’ was debuted at a New Years’ Eve show in Edinburgh, prompting us to get very excited about Biffy Clyro’s return.
