Glitter And Trauma

Album: Infinity Land (2004)
Charted: 21

Songfacts®:

  • The opening track from Infinity Land kicks off with a very un-Biffy sound. Frontman Simon Neil told Kerrang: "Part of the reason we put the drum machines at the start of 'Glitter and Trauma' was to confuse people - we wanted them to think they had brought the wrong album! That's how trusted we were back in the day (laughs)."
  • This was released as the first physical single from Infinity Land. Biffy Clyro's eighth single overall, it became their highest charting song to that date, reaching #21 on the UK Singles Chart.
