Biffy Clyro have released their new single "Weird Leisure", a fourth taster of their forthcoming album A Celebration of Endings.
Lead singer Simon Neil spoke to NME about the new single, "That’s a song about one of my oldest friends. He just chose the wrong path and got himself into a really tricky situation where his world closed in. He’d want help and you’d try to help, but then a week later you’re back to square one. Fortunately he’s in a good place now and on his way out of the darkness. I love this guy so much, but - fucking hell - he’s put me through some shit."
A Celebration of Endings will be their first record since 2016's Ellipsis.
Neil says of their new LP, "This is a very forward-looking album from a personal perspective and a societal perspective. The title is about seeing the joy in things changing, rather than the sadness. Change means progression and evolution. You can retain everything you loved before, but let’s lose the bad shit. It’s about trying to take back control."
