BIFFY Clyro have announced that they will be postponing the release of their eagerly-anticipated new album, A Celebration of Endings, until later this year.

The LP was due to be out soon but has now been put back to August 14, 2020, due to “the bigger issues” at stake caused by the coronavirus global pandemic.

In a statement expressing their regret, Biffy Clyro said: “After careful consideration over the past few weeks, we’ve made the difficult decision to move the release of A Celebration of Endings back to August 14.

“With all of the turmoil and anxiety that the Coronavirus situation is causing in everyone’s lives, we decided that it would have felt wrong to have continued with our original release plan. Music is of course important, but there are bigger issues at stake right now.

“We know that many of you will be as disappointed as we are, but we feel this is the right thing to do.

“We’ve always been honoured by the passion that fans have shown for our band and community. As a small token of our gratitude, we’d love for you to join us today, 27th March, on Facebook Live at 6pm UK time when Simon will play a few songs.

Take care and stay safe. Love Simon, Ben and James.”

In addition to the LP, Biffy Clyro also recently announced details of their first full-scale UK arena tour since 2016, taking place throughout September and October. At the moment, those dates remain intact and include a night at London’s O2 Arena on October 1, 2020. Find out more
