Scottish legends Biffy Clyro have shared the latest taste of their forthcoming ninth studio album, unleashing the riff-heavy epic of ‘A Hunger In Your Haunt’.
A massive, punchy, and hard-riffing anthem will appear on their upcoming record, ‘The Myth Of The Happily Ever After’, which was announced along with six-minute lead track ‘Unknown Male 01’ earlier this month, ‘A Hunger In Your Haunt’ is the album’s first official single, setting the standard for a massive new release.
Frontman Simon Neil described it as “A riff I’d had kicking around for a while.” He continued: “It’s an expression of pure frustration. There were moments in the past year when I just wanted to scream my head off. I lacked purpose and didn’t want to get out of bed for a while, and the song is a wake-up call to myself.”
Simon also previously said of ‘The Myth Of The Happily Ever After’ as a whole. “This album is a real journey, a collision of every thought and emotion we’ve had over the past 18 months. There was a real fortitude in ‘A Celebration [Of Endings]’ but in this record, we’re embracing the vulnerabilities of being a band and being a human in this twisted era of our lives.”
The record is being billed as “a reaction” to the band’s 2020’s ‘A Celebration Of Endings’, and comes after the Scottish trio previously confirmed to NME that they were working on a “sprawling sister record”.
