In a time when the term punk rock is bandied about for easy access to credibility, Biffy Clyro are true exponents of a punk rock sound and ideal for 2003 - one which ensures everything centres around a constant musical (r)evolution They're signed to an independent label, still rehearse in the same YMCA room for £10 a week - and happily boast about the fact - and patently don't give a flying fig for notching up the obligatory Top 20 hits that are demanded of their contemporaries. Think back to all the great bands who have done it their way, who turned down or tuned up for no-one, regardless of commercial consequences.
It's this attitude on which careers are built and respect earned. And so far for Biffy Clyro its working like a dream.
The trio's recent thirty-date UK tour saw sold out shows the length and breadth of the country, with six hundred rapturous converts cramming into London Underworld to sing every single word to > in what will turn out to be one of the capital's most over-subscribed gigs of 2003. A beautiful, beautiful sight. These recent rapturous shows are testament to Biffy Clyro's expanding fanbase, one which transcends the usual demographic, and draws in both young kids falling in and out of love for the first time and those who've been waiting patiently for a band who exude that same heart-stopping dynamic and raw, bloodied purity last heard with Nirvana in '91. Plus the high female quota shows is tribute to the refreshing feminine streak running through Simon Neil's lyrics - a real rarity in rock 'n' roll these days.
Hailing from Essex, UK... Morning Parade are currently one of the most hotly tipped bands for 2012. They release their long-anticipated self-titled debut album in the USA on 19th June 2012 which was recorded with acclaimed producer David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything),
2011 saw the band selling out UK and European headline tours, playing to packed out tents at V Festival, touring with the likes of 30 Seconds to Mars, The Wombats and The Kooks, supporting Biffy Clyro at Ibiza Rocks and sharing a stage with Coldplay at Rock am Ring. Morning Parade are currently touring the USA with Walk the Moon ahead of their headline show at Mercury Lounge, NYC.
Their electric live show takes you on an emotional rollercoaster with feel good anthem 'Under The Stars' to life affirming show stopper 'Born Alone' This is the beginning of a hugely promising musical journey for one of the UKs most exciting new talents. Soon us, ourselves and everyone else - will join the parade.
