Biffy Clyro

Story by Jack Foley

BIFFY Clyro have announced that they will be playing six dates in the UK and Ireland this December.

The tour will see the band return to Brixton Academy on December 17 after their triumphant sell-out show there last November.

They will also be rounding off the tour with a massive homecoming show at Glasgow SECC on December 20, which will mark the largest headline show Biffy Clyro have ever played and offer them a chance to thank the home fans that have supported them over the last few years.

The tour marks the end of another phenomenal year for Biffy and also the end of the Puzzle campaign, which was released in June 2007 and has transformed them into one of the UK’s biggest and most influential rock bands.

The last year has seen them not only seen them tour the world in America, Japan and Australia, but also clock up high-profile support slots with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Queens of The Stone Age, Linkin Park, as well as a colossal Wembley Stadium show with Muse.

After the December shows, Biffy Clyro will be taking a break from touring to concentrate on work for their fifth album.

The full tour dates are (all December 2008):

14 – Belfast Mandela
15 – Dublin Academy
17 – London Brixton Academy
18 – Birmingham Academy
19 – Manchester Academy
20 – Glasgow SECC

Tickets for the tour will be available on Friday, August 8. The new long-awaited single Mountains will be released on August 25.
