Biffy Clyro - Cultural Sons of Scotland
Film Screening plus Band Q&A
5 May - 7pm
Dir. Jack Lowe, UK, 2022, 67 min
‘Biffy Clyro: Cultural Sons of Scotland’ is an intimate documentary film showing the back-to-basics recording process the band adopted to create their ninth studio album, ‘The Myth of the Happily Ever After’.
Biffy Clyro are one of Britain’s biggest rock bands, having remained contemporary throughout their 25-year career encompassing nine studio albums, major festival headline performances, sell-out world tours and more. The famously private Scottish band have never allowed anyone unrestricted access to document their creative process, until now.
Recorded over three months in 2021, the band unexpectedly found themselves back where it all began: the west coast of Scotland. Faced with the feeling of uncertainty and despair which swept the globe at the height of the pandemic, Simon, James and Ben were grounded in more ways than one; forced off tour, they headed to their studio on a working Ayrshire farm to process what was happening the only way they knew how. The result was ninth album ‘The Myth of the Happily Ever After’, described by DIY as their “… most emotionally powerful record in years.” and Kerrang as “the sound of a world-class band making truly world-class music”.
The film will be followed by an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with the band (duration 25 min)
