Biffy Clyro Announce New Single Featuring Josh Homme

March 10, 2010 by  

Biffy Clyro have announced they will release new single ‘Bubbles’ on April 26th on 14th Floor Records.

Released to coincide with their imminent UK tour, the single is taken from their current album ‘Only Revolutions’ that debuted in the Top 10 and has since sold 250,000 copies in the UK.

‘Bubbles’ features a special guest in the shape of Josh Homme who contributes additional guitar to the track. Their friendship was cemented when Biffy Clyro toured Europe and North America as support to Homme’s Queens of the Stone Age.

Biffy said of the collaboration:

“Someone like Josh, it’s like he’s a musical lifer,” says vocalist/guitarist Simon Neil. “We are as well, and I think when you meet people you can see in their eyes whether they really mean it or not. It’s kind of weird being friends with someone who’s a hero like Josh, but I see in him what I see in myself and he sees in us what he saw in himself, that kind of hunger and willingness and doing it for the right reasons. It’s really easy to connect with people because of that.”

‘Bubbles’ will be released on CD and two vinyl formats, with b-sides to be confirmed.

Their upcoming tour, listed below, concludes with another sizeable London date at Hammersmith Apollo:

29th – Perth, Concert Hall
30th – Sheffield, O2 Academy

In addition, Biffy Clyro will also play the Isle of Wight and T in the Park festival. Further festival dates are likely to be announced in the coming weeks.
