| On 27, Oct 2010

Already set to hit the arenas on their UK tour next month, Biffy Clyro will release the single ‘Booooom, Blast & Ruin’ onNovember 22nd on 14th Floor Records to coincide with the dates.

The new live video taking the best footage of the band’s momentous year can be seen here:

Taken from their Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘Only Revolutions’ that has seen the Scottish trio climb from cult status to rock’s premier league with over 400,000 sales, ‘Boooom, Blast & Ruin’ is an energised rush of distorted melody that represents one the album’s most infectiously upbeat moments.

Having hit the summer festival circuit with sets at Reading, Leeds and T in The Park, as well as a closing night headline show at the iTunes Festival Biffy Clyro hit the road in November for their biggest headline tour to date. The tour, which includes three Scottish arena dates and culminates with a prestigious Wembley Arena show, runs as below:

27th – Glasgow, SECC

29th – Hull, Arena

30th – Nottingham, Arena


1st – Plymouth, Pavilions

3rd – Manchester, Central

4th – London, Wembley Arena

Any remaining tickets are available now priced at £22.50 for London and £20 for all other dates.

As well as a succession of hit singles – ‘Mountains’ (#5), ‘That Golden Rule’ (#10), ‘The Captain’ (#17) and ‘Many ofHorror (#20) – Biffy Clyro’s recent successes have included two sold-out UK tours which included gigs atBrixton AcademyHammersmith Apollo and two rapturously received homecoming shows at Glasgow’sBarrowland. Having earned their first ever NME Award for Best Video for the single ‘The Captain’Biffy Clyrosoon collected the Best Video prize for the same track at the KerrangAwards. Now as 2010 draws to close, the band are also in contention for two honours at the Q Awards for Best Track and Best Video, both for ‘The Captain’ – all of which reiterates Biffy Clyro’s status as Britain’s most compelling band.
