Biffy Clyro - Ellipsis Tour
2016 was unarguably the year of BIFFY CLYRO. Although these Scotsmen have been around in the music business since 1995, it has only been this year that they've managed to conquer the German market completely. Their songs are on heavy rotation on several radio stations and they've hit the stages of a great number of festivals in 2016.
The October/ November concert hall tour included five dates in Germany and much to everyone's delight, there will be three additional BIFFY CLYRO shows in Germany in February 2017, which will take place in Stuttgart, Bochum and Hannover. The band's recent seventh album, called ‘Ellipsis’, was released as early as July 8th 2016 and straightforward entered the British as well as the German charts on #1. As their past career spans various elements of traditional Alternative Rock up to String Arrangements, they've now entered the realms of Pop-Rock songs, producing as many sounds as possible by hand in the studio.
The first single, ‘Wolves Of Winter’ released prior to the album, suggested quite a different approach with its drum-machine and loads of guitar tracks. However, BIFFY CLYRO also delivered an acoustic ballad called ‘Medicine’. Singer Simon Neil describes the album as “...a punch in the face rather than a heartfelt hug“. Fans can without a doubt look forward to a tour with boiling concert halls, roaring fan chants and hand-made rocking sounds.
