Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro are facing the prospect of vacating the farmhouse they have been using as a recording studio for the past decade due to a problem with "raw sewage".

The Mountains hitmakers reveal the country estate they have been holed up in in the Scottish county of Ayrshire requires some rather urgent plumbing work to fix the stinky issue.

Frontman Simon Neil tells, "We've got a plumbing problem. There has been raw sewage leaking through a wall. Its gone from being just gross to actually kinda dangerous...

He jokingly adds, "Maybe the new album will be raw sewage influenced. It might end up sounding like (thrash metal band) Municipal Waste!"

Biffy Clyro are currently working on the follow up to their last album Opposites, which was released last year (13).
