A wee bit of a Scottish invasion will happen this weekend in Belgium as Frightened Rabbit, Twin Atlantic and Snow Patrol join Biffy Clyro at the famous Pukkelpop Festival in Hasselt. Vic has more on Biffy Clyro along with details and ticket information for all the other Scottish bands on tour this week.
Biffy Clyro in Belgium
by Vic Galloway
Having championed these guys since they were unsigned and watched their slow but meteoric ascent to modern-day ‘Rock Gods’, I’m delighted to continue to sing the praises of the mighty Biffy Clyro. There was a day when their hardcore following and I were the only people who sang their praises. Now everyone’s in on it, and wants a piece of the action… across the media! Quite right too.
Following the release of their 5th LP proper ‘Only Revolutions’ they have embarked on a global tour and it’s only a matter of time before they make their complete transition to the mainstream, lodging themselves in the public’s consciousness.
Already there in Scotland, and now a top 10 act in the UK, they need that next step to conquer the USA, Far-East and Europe. If anyone can do it, it’s this anthemic and yet incredibly-inventive power trio from Kilmarnock… ‘Mon the Biffy!
Also on tour this week Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Twin Atlantic, Trembling Bells and Paranoise.
