Layabouts
From: Madrid, Spain
Lazy equation: (QotSA + The Hives) – Spain

Thrash Hits Verdict:
You can count the number of notable Spanish rock bands on one hand so we’re always interested when one starts doing things over here. There’s a kind of International Shit Band Filter that means only good bands get this far so we figured Layabouts must be ok. We gave it a listen and we weren’t wrong! What’s more, you can listen to the Spaniards’ third album, Savage Behavior yourself in the listening post below. Fancy!

Stillpoint
From: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Lazy Equation: (Funeral For A Friend + My Vitriol) x Biffy Clyro
URL: Facebook // Bandcamp

Thrash Hits Verdict:
Like something out of 2001, we heard Stillpoint rocking out on the the RADIO. Yeah, crazy talk isn’t it. Obviously, these days we find bands via MySpace all the time… Anyway. This Northern Irish trio even sounded a bit like they were from ten years ago, but not in a bad way. More in a way of all those awesome British rock bands (Hundred Reasons, Hell Is For Heroes, Reuben, etc) who were emerging around the turn of the millennium. In an awesome way. Check them out.

EXCLUSIVE: Thrash Hits hears new Biffy Clyro material

June 4th, 2008

Biffy Clyro in the park

Biffy Clyro invited Thrash Hits .com down to their record label offices this afternoon to have an early listen to some brand new, just-recorded songs.

Simon Neil and co have been recording some demos and while they have rough versions of about ten tracks, there is only one song which is completely finished and it’s called ‘Mountains’.

It is 3min 19sec of slightly angular, stadium-filling riff rock with a killer refrain of, “I am the mountain / I am the sea/ You can’t take that away from me.” It will stick in your head after the very first listen – I guarantee it. Expect a hell of a lot of distortion and a more positive outlook for their forthcoming fifth album, touted for release in 2009.

Listen to ‘Mountains’ by Biffy Clyro
‘Mountains’ will be released as a single on Monday, 25 August 2008 after Reading & Leeds Festival and you can pre-order it at Amazon. ‘Paperfriend’ is a possible B-side – a song which was fully recorded during the Puzzle sessions but was left off the final cut.

Watch this clip of ‘Mountains’ being debuted at Electric Weekend Festival in Getafe, Spain on 30 May 2008. It’s really crappy quality both in terms of sound and vision so don’t expect too much from this but rest assured ‘Mountains’ sounds amazing.

Since the release of Puzzle in May 2007, the Scottish trio have toured incessantly with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Bloc Party, Oceansize and Linkin Park and have played festivals around the world.

Biffy Clyro will be performing at Download, Glastonbury, T in the Park and Reading & Leeds festivals this summer.

Look out for an interview with Biffy Clyro on Thrash Hits .com, where they talk about the new album as well as coming to the end of the Puzzle campaign, very, very soon.
