Biffy Clyro have signed up to headline the Kerrang! Tour 2007, which will be hitting the UK in January. The Ayrshire trio, who are currently working on their forthcoming fourth album, will hit the road with Californian punk rock 'n' rollers The Bronx, Chicago pop-punkers the Audition and Californian goth-metal crew I Am Ghost!
This tour means a lot to us," Biffy Clyro bassist James Johnston grins. "Kerrang! has always supported us and it's a real privilege to be part of this. We're very excited to be headlining and we can't wait to rawk! We feel most at home on the road, so it's great to be going on tour again. There are people all over the country that we can't wait to see, so roll on the New Year!"
"We suggested to the Kerrang! staff that they visit the mystic that The Bronx consult on a weekly basis," jokes The Bronx guitarist Joby K. Ford. "At first they were sceptical, but then we told them about the taco stand next door and they were sold! And we got the Kerrang! tour. Good thing we slipped the mystic $20!"
"I'm so stoked that we're able to be a part of the Kerrang! Tour," says theAudtion frontman Danny Stevens. "It's such an honour that fans in the UK would want to have us back! Expect some crazy shit from theAudizzle! See you in January!"
"We are so excited to play this tour," adds I Am Ghost vocalist Steven Juliano. "We're looking forward to meeting all of you. Our live show will be something unique and inspiring."
