Biffy Clyro's James Johnston has said he wishes that the band could be outspoken like Liam Gallagher.
The band, who are currently working on the anticipated follow-up to 2009's 'Only Revolutions', said they love the frontman's patter.
''I wish we were more outspoken like Liam Gallagher. I love his patter. He is actually a really nice guy. We bumped into Liam and Noel when we were in Los Angeles a few years back,'' he told the Daily Record.
"We were in the same studio and went to see The Duke Spirit. Alan McGee was there and a big bunch of us together. We all went down to a reggae bar. Liam knew our songs and sang three of them and then Noel got on stage and started singing. They were all pretty drunk at the time."
The band have yet to announce details of a release date for their as-yet-untitled new album.
Meanwhile, Biffy Clyro have among the acts confirmed for this year's Isle of Wight festival. For more information about Isle Of Wight and all this summer's festivals, check out the Gigwise Festival Guide.
