Ambitious, stadium-rocking Scots Biffy Clyro say their new double album will be rather eclectic.

The trio broke through in 2010 with their single ‘Many Of Horror’ (from their fifth studio album, 2009’s Only Revolutions) hitting the UK top ten and getting covered by X-Factor winner Matt Cardle as ‘When We Collide’.

They’ve been touring the world with acts like Foo Fighters and Metallica and playing monster rock festivals while also preparing their follow-up album, which has now been confirmed as a double album.

Frontman Simon Neil told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, that it will be a 20-song double album which will include keyboards, strings, “Phil Collins-type” electronic beats, and even veers into a mariachi sound.

Neil said, “It sounds dangerous when you say it out loud but we’re trying to explore writing songs in a different manner,” although he did reassure fans that “We’re not going to throw every song we’ve ever done on it – it’s not that kind of double album.”

There is still no prospective title or release date for it, but the band have been confirmed for the Isle Of Wight Festival in June so it would be auspicious to have new material out by then.
