Biffy Clyro surprised by playing a short set outside London's Tate Modern to raise poverty awareness for Agit8.

The Scottish band tweeted yesterday (June 12th) that they would be playing a special show that was in support of the charity.

"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.

They are also the main support act to Muse at a number of selected stadium across the continent.

Biffy will cap off their summer by headlining Reading and Leeds Festival at the end of August alongside other bill toppers Eminem and Green Day.
