"Tonight. 8pm. London. Southbank. Tate Modern. #agit8 #protestsongs" the tweet read.

Simon Neil and co treated fans to a three-song acoustic playlist including a cover of Rage Against The Machine's Killing In The Name along with Biblical and The Rain taken from the band's latest album Opposites.

Biffy are currently in the middle of a European festival tour with the trio travelling to Denmark's NorthSide Festival tomorrow (June 14th) while performances at Austria's Nova Rock 2013, Openair St. Gallen and Bilbao BBK Live among others will continue over the summer.
