Biffy Clyro have just shared the first proper single from their upcoming album The Myth Of The Happily Ever After.

Following the release of excellent 'lead track' Unknown Male 01 earlier this month, the Scottish rock kings have thrown things back to their Infinity Land days with their newest effort, as frontman Simon Neil explains: "A Hunger In Your Haunt was a riff I’d had kicking around for a while.

"It’s an expression of pure frustration. There were moments in the past year when I just wanted to scream my head off. I lacked purpose and didn’t want to get out of bed for a while, and the song is a wake-up call to myself. You need to get a fire in your belly and get up and do something, because no-one’s going to do it for you. It’s like a self-motivating mantra."

Simon previously said of The Myth Of The Happily Ever After as a whole: "This album is a real journey, a collision of every thought and emotion we’ve had over the past 18 months. There was a real fortitude in A Celebration [Of Endings] but in this record we’re embracing the vulnerabilities of being a band and being a human in this twisted era of our lives.

"Even the title is the polar opposite. It’s asking: do we create these narratives in our own minds to give us some security when none of us know what’s waiting for us at the end of the day?”
