Description

The story of Biffy Clyro is as romantic as it is archetypal. Three childhood friends from Ayrshire formed a band, delivered three albums of abrasive youthful exuberance and finally cracked the big time when their fourth – 2007’s Puzzle – hit the charts at #2. By the time the promotion of their fifth album Only Revolutions had ceased, they were bona fide stars who could deliver hit singles in an era in which rock bands rarely trouble the charts. 2011’s Opposites propelled the trio to a whole new level as it debuted at #1 – suddenly Biffy Clyro had joined the elite category of bands who could repeatedly fill arenas (their most recent sold-out tour culminated with a gargantuan show at London’s O2 Arena), headline major festivals (Reading, Leeds and Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2013 alone) and earn waves of awards (Best Band at the NME Awards, Best Album at the Kerrang! Awards). The band announced that 2015 would be their ‘year off.’ In an interview with 3FM in June 2014, Neil stated that “[the band] will take a quiet year next year and disappear so people don’t get sick of the lovely Biffy.” In the same interview he stated that they were working on about 19 new songs, but felt it was too early to play them live. The first single “Wolves of Winter” was exclusively played as Hottest Record on Monday 21 March 2016 on Radio 1. On Monday 21st March 2016, during the live premiere of “Wolves of Winter” on Hottest Record on Beats 1, Zane Lowe, Neil announced that the band’s new album will be titled Ellipsis. The album, due for release on 8 July 2016, was made available to pre-order in a limited edition box set on the Biffy Clyro web store.
