Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil is set to release a ‘solo’ album

If you don't already know, Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro has another band, Marmaduke Duke, and now he is set to go it alone this time with a solo album under the name of ZZC.


Speaking to Kerrang he said - " ... I'm reticent to say 'solo', it's another outlet, I guess. It’s a purely electronic album. I wrote it and made it when I was trying to make "Ellipsis" and I was worried about writing a Biffy song and making it as good as all our other songs. That wasn’t working so I had to go away and make some different music. ... I ended up making this dance record. It’s quite sparse. Some of it’s ambient, some of it’s hilarious. There’s not a guitar on it. It’ll be called ZZC but if you Google 'ZZC' it comes up as a Japanese porn site. I really should have checked."

He has already released a track under this name, "To The Bone", which was a part of the 'Drive Re-Score' by BBC Radio 1 (which kinda flopped in the end as a whole), however you can listen to it below.
