Biffy Clyro’s first live shows of 2016 are revealed
They’re only playing one show in 2015, but fear not, because Biffy Clyro will be playing two shows in 2016
Scottish alt-rock trio Biffy Clyro have confirmed their first live gigs of 2016, after announcing that they will play the German festivals Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in the summer of next year. Further announcements on the bands performances in 2016 are expected.
Rock am Ring and Rock im Park are two simultaneous festivals that are held annually, with next year’s festivals held from 3-5 June 2016. Biffy confirmed through Facebook that they will be playing the two festivals. Tickets for Rock am Ring and Rock im Park go on sale on 30 October.
The announcement comes after the band had claimed to be “musical hibernation” as they work on their seventh studio album. Speaking earlier this year about album number seven, frontman Simon Neil said:
“It’s sounding really rocking at the moment. I think it’s important to put some more rules and limitations on what we do because on the last few records we ran with whatever ideas we had. So on this one, when I say stripped back it’s not going to sound skeletal or anything but perhaps a bit more aggressive. Coming off the back of a double album, it’s important to be really concise so we might only have ten songs.”
