NEW BIFFY CLYRO ALBUM OPPOSITES DEBUTS AT #1 IN THE UK

ALBUM SET FOR NORTH AMERICAN RELEASE MARCH 12, 2013

COACHELLA SLOT AND NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH MUSE CONFIRMED


For immediate release â Breakthrough rock band Biffy Clyro has claimed the top spot on the UK charts with their new album Opposites. The bandâs sixth release and first #1 debut sold over 70,000 copies, almost double what the #2 album sold. Opposites is set for North American release March 12th.

The Scottish trio will embark on a UK headline arena tour before bringing Opposites to US and Canadian audiences live this spring with performances at Coachella and an opening spot on Museâs headline run; full dates are below. Biffy has also just been announced as main stage headliners at the Reading and Leeds festivals later this year.

Produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers) in Los Angeles, CA, Opposites has already received overwhelming critical praise. âOpposites is a vastly original, exquisitely-produced, fully-realised and creatively outstanding piece of work,â declared Kerrang! âThe chances of any band this year releasing an album that can claim to be its equal are nil.â Q magazine agreed, saying, âOpposites confirms Biffy as the emerging band of the decade. Their sixth album has everything you want from a rock group⦠Watch them conquer.â

The first single off Opposites, "Black Chandelier," which Billboard called a "sure-fire worldwide smash" is impacting at Modern Rock radio this week. Fans can download "Black Chandelier" instantly when they pre-order the album, and it is also available as a single on iTunes.
