Although their live shows are best known for their electrifying and explosive energy, Biffy Clyro have often demonstrated that their songs possess an added poignancy when stripped back to their essence. Now the band can announce details of their first acoustic album, MTV Unplugged: Live At Roundhouse London.

Recorded at London’s famous Roundhouse venue on November 8th last year, 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.

The set 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 an Unplugged performance. Yet the band also flourishes with stripped-back performances of songs that were more aggressive and dramatic in their original form, such as The Captain, Black Chandelier and Bubbles.

The album 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.

The MTV Unplugged tour presents a chance for a wider audience to see Biffy Clyro play a rare full-length acoustic set in magnificent surroundings.
