Biffy Clyro Share Short Film Footage Including Visuals For The Band’s Last Two Singles
Ahead of the release of their new album The Myth Of The Happily Ever After, set to arrive on October 22, Biffy Clyro have released a short film lasting 10 minutes containing the visuals of the project’s newest two singles.
The short film footage combines the video for Unknown Male 01 and A Hunger In Your Haunt. Kicking off with the video for the latter song, Simon Neil and co. perform in a plain industrial brick room while lobbing paint over themselves, their instruments, and a large canvas, possibly to evoke the paint strokes used on the artwork of their upcoming album.
Meanwhile, cryptic frames lifted from the following video for Unknown Male 01 of natural landscapes flicker throughout. As the next song begins, we’re shown Neil levitating above the ground before more mysterious scenes unfold, including the gathering of some kind of cult and the appearance of an ominous floating cube – also taken from The Myth Of The Happily Ever After’s album cover. You can check the footage out below.
Speaking of the latest single, frontman Neil explains, “A Hunger In Your Haunt was a riff I’d had kicking around for a while. It’s an expression of pure frustration. There were moments in the past year when I just wanted to scream my head off.
“I lacked purpose and didn’t want to get out of bed for a while, and the song is a wake-up call to myself. You need to get a fire in your belly and get up and do something, because no-one’s going to do it for you. It’s like a self-motivating mantra.”
Also in Biffy Clyro news, the band recently made the longlist for the Scottish Album Of The Year (SAY) Award for 2021, along with Mogwai and more.
The annual award pays tribute to the best in Scottish music, and this year’s award will be handed out at a live ceremony at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on October 23.
