Electric Fetus

The record is a homegrown project that represents a reaction to their #1 album `A Celebration of Endings' and a rapid emotional response to the turmoil of the past year. It is the ying to the yang of `A Celebration', the other-side-of-a-coin, a before-and-after comparison: their early optimism of 2020 having been brought back to earth with a resounding thud. It's the product of a strange and cruel time in our lives, but one that ultimately reinvigorated Biffy Clyro.

"This is a reaction to `A Celebration of Endings'," says vocalist / guitarist Simon Neil. "This album is a real journey, a collision of every thought and emotion we've had over the past eighteen months. There was a real fortitude in `A Celebration' but in this record we're embracing the vulnerabilities of being a band and being a human in this twisted era of our lives. Even the title is the polar opposite. It's asking, do we create these narratives in our own minds to give us some security when none of us know what's waiting for us at the end of the day?"

"When you lose people that you love deeply and have been a big part of your life, it can make you question every single thing about your own life," he says. "Like a lot of creative people, I struggle with dark thoughts. If you're that way inclined you realise you're staring at darkness, but you don't want to succumb. Those moments don't stop. As the song says, `The devil never leaves.' There's never a day where you wake up thinking, `I feel great, it won't cross me ever again.'"
