Biffy Clyro - Biffy Clyro go dance

Biffy Clyro's next album is ''very danceable''.

The 'Black Chandelier' hitmakers are using computers to make music for the first time and say their forthcoming seventh album marks a change in direction for the Scottish rockers.

Drummer Ben Johnston said: ''It's early days, but a couple of new songs we're recording are sounding very danceable.

''We're thinking of shaking up the way we write - all of us coming up with ideas on our computers and swapping them around. It'll be the first time we've really used computers to write.

''While I'm sure we'll create a few more big rock songs, it'll be good to see what new sounds we conjure up too.''

The group - whose last album 'Opposites' topped the UK charts - are ready to ''start afresh'' with their music and have promised to surprise fans with what they come up with.

Ben told the Daily Star newspaper: ''We think of our albums as two different trilogies, and 'Opposites' was number six. It's time to start afresh, and some songs we've worked on are very different.

''Some songs are dark - they sound like black metal.''

The 'Many of Horror' rockers headlined the Isle of Wight festival alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings Of Leon at the weekend but didn't think it was the right time to showcase any of their new songs.

Ben explained: ''A festival wasn't the place to try out new songs on people who wanted to dance to old favourites.''
