Events
For those of you lucky enought to live alongside Thrash Hits in London town, tonight sees the launch of Someone’s Yelling Fire, a new punk/hardcore/metal/screamo/emo night at the recently-reopened Highbury Garage. Get there early enough and you’ll be able to catch live sets from The Xcerts, Save Your Breath and Flood of Red. Get their later, and you get to see Thrash Hits staffers collapse at the bar following an excess of beers. Double trouble! And just a fiver to boot.

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.
