Ahead of their New Zealand show at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Tuesday night (April 24), Biffy Clyro have announced details of their first acoustic album; MTV UNPLUGGED: LIVE AT ROUNDHOUSE LONDON, to be released on May 25.

Although their live shows are best known for their electrifying and explosive energy, Biffy Clyro has often demonstrated that their songs possess an added poignancy when stripped back to their essence.

MTV UNPLUGGED: LIVE AT ROUNDHOUSE LONDON is rich with favourites from the Biffy catalogue. ‘Machines’ is already long established as a highlight of the band’s live shows as Simon Neil performs accompanied by a single acoustic guitar, while the likes of ‘Many of Horror’, ‘Re-arrange’ and ‘Medicine’ are all natural fits for a MTV Unplugged performance. Yet the band also flourish with stripped-back performances of songs that were more aggressive and dramatic in their original form, such as ‘The Captain’, ‘Black Chandelier’ and ‘Bubbles’.

Recorded at London’s famous Roundhouse venue on November 8th, 2017, the set represented the UK relaunch of the iconic MTV Unplugged series. Biffy Clyro follow in the footsteps of influential rock bands who had previously performed as part of the series, notably Nirvana, Oasis, Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and George Michael.

MTV UNPLUGGED: LIVE AT ROUNDHOUSE LONDON also presents some special treats for Biffy fans. A stunning take on the Beach Boys’ classic ‘God Only Knows’ is an undoubted highlight, while a brand new original song is also included in the shape of ‘Different Kind of Love’.
