Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil has released the debut single with his new band, Empire State Bastard, called “Harvest.”

Describing the thrash-y tune, ESB proclaims, “Empires fall, States rise, Bastards sing…it’s ‘Harvest’ time m*****f******!”

You can listen to “Harvest” now via digital outlets.

Along with Neil, Empire State Bastard includes Mike Vennart, who plays guitar in Biffy’s live band and used to front the band Oceansize. Ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo also plays on “Harvest,” and will join ESB’s live lineup for their upcoming debut shows in the U.K. later in March.

Biffy Clyro released their latest album, The Myth of the Happily Ever After, in 2021.
