Biffy Clyro Join Foo Fighters On Spring Tour

Breakthrough band Biffy Clyro will be hitting the road with Foo Fighters for a portion of their spring tour.

The string of dates - which kick off May 17th in Tulsa, OK - will follow a run with Cage the Elephant and appearance at the Bamboozle Festival in Rutherford, NJ April 30th.

The Scottish trio is fresh off a successful US headlining tour, which included sold-out New York and LA shows, a KROQ Backyard BBQ show and a performance on FUEL TV's The Daily Habit.

The band's current single, "Many of Horror" is currently off to a great start on alternative radio stations in various cities. They will be performing the single on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly on Wednesday, March 23.

Biffy Clyro was also recently awarded the Shockwave NME Award for Best Live Band, beating out Muse and Arcade Fire. This win adds to Biffy's already lengthly list of accolades. Their fifth studio release, Only Revolutions, produced three Top Ten singles in the UK and is on its way to being certified double-platinum there. Receiving rave reviews, Only Revolutions was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize and their single "Captain" won Best Video at both the Kerrang! and NME Awards in 2010.

The band has a unique sound, producing a mind-boggling mix of off-kilter tempos, itchy, unpredictable guitars, soulful choruses and feral screams, and have shared the stage with Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, The Who and Linkin Park.
