Scottish rockstars Biffy Clyro return to New Zealand next fall

After crisscrossing the Northern Hemisphere for over a year, award-winning rockers Biffy Clyro will be heading down south in Auckland for a one-off show in April next year.

Auckland alt-rock duo Skinny Hobos will take the stage at Spark Arena to open for Biffy Clyro. Fresh from an energetic set at 'Homegrown' and a slot at 'Storm The Gates' plus the release of their first single of 2018 'Jacked Like the Ripper', Skinny Hobos are gig fit and ready to continue their tradition of big riffs and big drums and making far more noise than any two people should.

Two decades and seven albums into an extraordinary run, Biffy Clyro have received numerous awards and nominations, including three 'Best Live British Band' wins at the NME Awards and a nomination for the coveted Mercury Prize for Only Revolutions.

After taking a leave from the spotlight, the band are back with a vengeance with their latest studio album 'Ellipsis'.

"Ellipsis has an air of Moving Pictures about it; an amalgamation of everything that came before it into a cohesive whole, with a couple of new bits added in. It's still Biffy, but it sounds a little new." - The 405

"The whole feel of the album is fun, shackle-free, uninhibited, but still masterfully crafted. In fact, by opening themselves up Biffy Clyro have captured the spirit of a brand-new band again." - The NME

In a five-star review, The Telegraph raved, "it was a triumphal set drawn from recent albums, where the band have blended their attacking instincts with more emotionally resonant song forms."

The live show is no less re-born, with the frequent flyers performing their own headline dates across Europe and the US, appearing at countless festivals and even teaming up with Guns N' Roses for a series of shows.

Rock fans of all ages should rush to see one of the great live bands in a rare NZ appearance.
