New this week: Biffy Clyro, Latitude Festival + more

Here's our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.

Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro has announced a very special live stream to launch their brand new album, A Celebration Of Endings. The full follow-up to 2016’s celebrated Ellipsis is due for release on 14 August 2020, the day before they take to an iconic Glasgow venue for a live performance of the new record in full.

Promising to use the space creatively for a unique live stream experience, the show will celebrate what is Biffy Clyro’s eighth studio album, and first material since last year’s soundtrack record, Balance, Not Symmetry. As well as performing the record in full, Biffy have confirmed that they will play some of their biggest hits during the soundcheck, to be broadcast as part of the live stream.

“We are really excited to launch A Celebration of Endings with such a unique and ambitious live performance from one of our favourite venues,” Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil said on announce. “We would love to be playing live shows to our fans across the world, but as this is not possible we are going to bring the biggest Biffy album launch imaginable direct to your living room.”

To date, the band – completed by James and Ben Johnston – have unveiled three tracks from the record, most recently dropping Tiny Indoor Fireworks.

Biffy Clyro will perform the live stream from an iconic Glasgow venue on 15 August 2020 at 20:00 BST. Tickets will be available from 9:00 on Friday 24 July 2020.

Releasing her new album Brightest Blue, Ellie Goulding has also announced a very special live stream performance, to be broadcast from London’s Victoria And Albert Museum on 26 August 2020.

The digital gig comes in support of her fourth studio album and follow-up to 2015’s Delirium.

In the world of festivals, Latitude Festival has announced its first names for 2021, confirming appearances by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, indie-pop outfit Bastille, and a special Sunday afternoon set courtesy of Snow Patrol.

The festival will return to Suffolk’s Henham Park from 22 – 25 July 2021, set to boast an expansive music, theatre, arts and comedy line-up across its uniquely picturesque rural location.

Air Thrill have announced the UK’s first socially distant inflatable obstacle course aimed at 4 – 14 year olds, bringing their BounceZilla course to London’s Catford Island from 25 – 31 July 2020.

Bringing together the inflatable assault course with the UK’s only NERF gun arena, the activity complies with all guidelines including a deep clean between groups, temperature scanning and free standing sanitiser stations.
