Biffy Clyro can now confirm that City and Colour – the alias of the Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green – will provide the support on their upcoming UK and Ireland arena tour which commences in March. The tour will follow the release of Biffy Clyro’s eagerly anticipated double-album ‘Opposites’ which is out on January 28th on 14th Floor Records. The album will be previewed by the January 14th release of the single ‘Black Chandelier’.

 

City and Colour recently completed an extensive world tour in support of his third album ‘Little Hell’ which included two sold-out headline shows at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall. ‘Little Hell’ debuted at#1 in Canada and was certified Platinum, making it the third City and Colour album to reach that status following ‘Sometimes’ (2005) and ‘Bring Me Your Love’ (2008). City and Colour also earned Juno Awards for Alternative Album of the Year (2007) and Songwriter of the Year (2009). In the UK, ‘Little Hell’ was named in Kerrang’s best fifty albums of2011.

 

Green was recently in the studio recording the follow up to ‘Little Hell’ which is due out next year. For more information on City and Colour, please visit the official site or Facebook.

Opposites’ signals Biffy Clyro’s growing ambition with twenty-two tracks spread across two discs: ‘The Sand at the Core of Our Bones’ and ‘The Land at the End of Our Toes’. A deluxe version of ‘Opposites’ adds a DVD which contains a feature-length documentary which examines the making of the album. Fans who pre-order the album will receive a taster of what’s to come when they receive‘Stingin’ Belle’ as an instant gratification track. The accompanying video for the track is now online.

 

Biffy Clyro’s touring in support of ‘Only Revolutions’ saw them elevated to arena and festival headlining status as they played three sold-out UK tours which included a landmark show at Wembley Arena. Their status as one of Britain’s most exciting bands was reflected with Best Live Band awards from both NME and Q in 2011.

 

Recent weeks have seen the band unveil Storm Thoorgerson artwork to ‘Opposites’ with the help of Twitter, and they also played a special double-bill of sessions for Radio 1 by playing Fearne Cotton’s Live Lounge in the morning before hitting Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 Rocks later that same day.
