Biffy Clyro (Early Show)
Biffy Clyro (Early Show)
Biffy Clyro came together in 1995 in a school in Kilmarnock, just outside of Glasgow, when childhood friends Simon Neil (vocals/guitar) and twins James (bass/vocals) and Ben Johnston (drums/vocals) started playing music together. United by a love of underground, experimental rock and post-hardcore bands such as Braid and Karate, along with the starrier likes of Guns N’Roses and Metallica, they quickly honed their own unique sound, a mind boggling mix of off-kilter tempos, itchy, unpredictable guitars, soulful choruses and feral screams, sewn together into a strange tapestry of sound that sat resolutely apart anything else being made at the time, both in spirit and - thanks to their admirable refusal to uproot from their hometown for the dog eat dog music community of London - geographically too.

Their first three albums – ‘Blackened Sky’, ‘The Vertigo Of Bliss’ and ‘Infinity Land’ – arrived in a barrage of creativity, a record released every year and relentless touring building up a small but devoted army of followers. Team Biffy’s ranks grew exponentially when ‘Puzzle’ came along and stunned listeners with its achingly personal, rich and complex take on rock anthems, and Simon, James and Ben found themselves playing Wembley Stadium with Muse, headlining the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury and gigging with The Rolling Stones. U2 even supported them at a special Little Noise session at London’s Union Chapel, although the highlight for the band came when they headlined in front of a hometown crowd at Glasgow’s SECC.

Their next album ‘Only Revolutions’, widely acclaimed as one of 2009’s finest albums and nominated for the Mercury Prize, saw Biffy Clyro make a stellar leap forwards into rock’s major leagues as it passed 600,000 sales in the UK alone. As well as a succession of hit singles – ‘Mountains’ (#5), ‘Many of Horror’ (#8) ‘That Golden Rule’ (#10), ‘The Captain’ (#17), ‘Bubbles’ (#34) and ‘God And Satan’ (#36) - the band’s subsequent successes included three sold-out UK tours which included a Wembley Arena date and three Scottish arena shows.

Having earned their first ever NME Award in 2009 for Best Video for the single ‘The Captain’, Biffy Clyro soon collected the Best Video prize for the same track at the Kerrang! Awards. 2011 then saw the band receive Kerrang!’s Classic Songwriter Award as well as NME and Q Awards as Best Live Band.

Biffy Clyro have recently returned to the road with select festival dates including Rockness, Download and the Isle of Wight. They’re now preparing for the January 2013 release of the eagerly anticipated new album ‘Opposites’. Again produced by GGGarth Richardson in Los Angeles, ‘Opposites’ signals the band’s growing ambition with twenty-two tracks spread across two discs:  ‘The Sand at the Core of Our Bones’ and ‘The Land at the End of Our Toes’.
