Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro have celebrated hitting No 1 in the charts by announcing a huge homecoming show next summer.

The band, whose latest record A Celebration Of Endings topped the album charts last week, will play at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow on Friday 25 June 2021.

They will be supported by Yungblud, Frank Carter And The Rattlesnakes and Porridge Radio, with tickets going on sale at 9am this Friday, 28 August, from www.gigsinscotland.com

The album is their successive No1, after 2013’s Opposites and 2016’s Ellipsis, which both achieved gold sales.

Since the release of his 2018 debut album, 21st Century Liability, Yorkshire-born singer Yungblud has fast become the voice of a generation. His latest single, Lemonade, featuring Denzel Curry, dropped last week, with a second album due later this year.

Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, pictured below, are known for their phenomenal live shows and promise an unforgettable performance at Bellahouston Park. Their most recent album, End Of Suffering, hit the Top 5 on the UK album chart and received some of the best reviews of the former Gallows frontman’s career.

Opening the show will be Brighton indie-rockers Porridge Radio, whose second album Every Bad was recently nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

As for the headliners, A Celebration Of Endings has brought some of the strongest reviews of Biffy Clyro’s 25-year career to date.

The consensus praised the album’s eclectic style and uplifting positivity at a time when such an outlook is desperately needed.

The first two singles, Instant History and Tiny Indoor Fireworks, were both named as Radio One DJ Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World, and the band have just launched their latest single, Space, along with a visually striking video.

Biffy Clyro previously headlined Bellahouston Park in 2016 , a show which The Guardian described as a “triumphant set from champions of stadium rock.”

This new date represents a huge homecoming show for the Kilmarnock band and adds to a schedule which includes the intimate sold-out Fingers Crossed Tour plus a Saturday night headline set at Download Festival on 5 June.
