Biffy Clyro's frontman struggled while working on new album
During an interview with the NME, he explained that a series of deaths really shook him up and left him struggling to cope: "I had a bit of a ‘do’... Storm [Thorgerson, designer of their artwork] died; my gran died; my best friend’s brother died on Christmas Day… It felt like when things couldn’t get any worse, they just kept getting worse.”
Neil went onto add that he "needed to sort [his] f**king s**t out" so he packed up and went to Los Angeles with his wife for a little while, and the change of scenery helped him get back to himself: "That was the turning point in getting my confidence back."
Biffy Clyro, meanwhile, will release their new album on July 8 and they have recently been confirmed to perform live at this year's Reading and Leeds Festival.
