Biffy Clyro

Blackened Sky - B-sides

Beggars Banquet
Released 2 April 2012

The debut album from this Scottish power trio is a majestic statement of intent combining extreme aggression with achingly tender guitar pickings and passionately lovelorn lyricism.

Lead singer Simon Neil had this to say about it to Vice: "There’s definitely a split in our fans. There’s ones who love the first three [Blackened Sky, Vertigo Of Bliss, Infinity Land], then a lot that found us after. Whatever album you discover a band on is the one you will always hold dearest, and we’ve definitely got some old school fans who’ve seen us playing to nobody. It means a lot to us that this album has managed to become a part of people’s lives and memories."

This is a re-release of Biffy Clyro's fantastic debut album. In addition to the original album, the second LP contains two tracks from their pre-Beggars single, thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow, and various rare B-sides, some on vinyl for the first time.
