Biffy Clyro
Clyro
are a Scottish rock band that formed in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire,[2] composed of Simon Neil
Simon Neil
(guitar, lead vocals), James Johnston (bass, vocals) and Ben Johnston (drums, vocals). Currently signed to 14th Floor Records, they have released seven studio albums, four of which (Puzzle, Only Revolutions, Opposites and Ellipsis) reached the top five in the UK Albums Chart, with their sixth studio album, Opposites claiming their first UK number-one album.[3] After their first three albums, the band expanded their following significantly in 2007 with the release of their fourth, Puzzle, creating more mainstream songs with simpler rhythms and distancing themselves from the more unusual dissonant style that was present in their previous three albums. Puzzle peaked at number 2 on the official UK album charts on 16 June 2007. The album went Gold in the UK, selling over 100,000 units, and later in 2012 went Platinum in the UK, having sold over 300,000 copies. The band released Only Revolutions
Only Revolutions
in 2009 which reached No. 3 in the UK chart and went gold within days of its release in 2009, going platinum later in 2010 (achieving double-platinum status in August 2011) and receiving a Mercury Music Prize
Mercury Music Prize
nomination. Only Revolutions included the UK hit singles "Mountains", "That Golden Rule" and "Many of Horror" all of which reached the UK Top Ten. The latter reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart

covered the song, and became the UK number one Christmas single for the year 2010. In 2011 the band was nominated for the Brit Awards for Best British Group.[4] At the 2013 NME Awards, they received the award for Best British Band.[5] On 25 August 2013 Biffy Clyro
Clyro
headlined the main stage at Leeds & Reading Festival. Based on their album and single certifications, the band have sold in excess of 1,240,000 albums and 400,000 singles in the UK alone. As of 2016, in total, the band have spent 155 weeks in the top seventy-five of the UK Album Charts, with two of those weeks being at the top position at number one and seventy weeks within the main top forty of the albums charts. The band's singles have spent a total of seventy-nine weeks in the UK Singles Charts, with six weeks in the top ten and forty-two in the top forty.[6]

History[edit] 1995–2000: Early years and formation[edit] The first incarnation of what would eventually become Biffy Clyro
Clyro
was formed in 1995, when fifteen-year-old Ayr-based guitarist Simon Neil met another guitarist, 20-year-old Boyan Chowdury and the pair recruited Kilmarnock-born Ben Johnston. Soon brought in was Ben's twin brother, James Johnston, and the four spent the next two years rehearsing, writing and covering songs. On 31 January 1995, they played their first gig under the name "Skrewfish" as the support for a band called Pink Kross at the Key Youth Centre in East Kilbride, now known as Universal Connections East Kilbride.[7] In 1997, guitarist Boyan left the band and moved to Liverpool (where he would eventually form The Zutons) and the resulting trio moved to Glasgow, where Neil went to the University of Glasgow, and the Johnston twins went to Stow College, studying Electronics with Music and Audio Engineering, respectively.[8]

and receiving positive and enthusiastic reactions from audiences,[9] the band were spotted by Dee Bahl, who soon became their manager. Bahl offered them a chance to release an independent single on Aereogramme's Babi Yaga record label: "Iname" was released on 28 June 1999, with Northsound Radio's Jim Gellatly (later of Beat 106 & Xfm Scotland) giving the band their first radio play. This first release led to the band being chosen by Stow College's Electric Honey record label to release a record: thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow was released on Nerosa on 13 June 2000, receiving airplay from BBC Radio Scotland
BBC Radio Scotland
DJ Vic Galloway.[9] A few days prior to the release of thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow, the band were spotted at the Unsigned Bands stage at T in the Park 2000 by a Beggars Banquet representative, and were signed to the independent Beggar's Banquet soon thereafter. 2001–2005: Blackened Sky, The Vertigo of Bliss
The Vertigo of Bliss
and Infinity Land[edit] On 9 April 2001, the previously unreleased "27" was released as a single. On 1 October 2001, a song from thekidswho... was re-recorded and released as a single, "Justboy"; this was repeated again on 4 February 2002, when the song "57" was released. On 11 March, the band's debut album, Blackened Sky, was released to generally positive reviews. It was around this time that the band began touring extensively, including supporting Weezer
Weezer
on 20 March at the Barrowlands in Glasgow.[9] On 15 July, the fourth single from the album, "Joy.Discovery.Invention", was released as a double A-side with a newly recorded song called "Toys, Toys, Toys, Choke, Toys, Toys, Toys" (which would later also appear on their next album The Vertigo of Bliss). In 2003, the band retreated to the Linford Manor
Linford Manor
recording studio in Great Linford, Milton Keynes, England, to record the follow-up to Blackened Sky. On 24 March, a new single was released called "The Ideal Height", followed by a further new single "Questions and Answers" on 26 May. The band's second album, The Vertigo of Bliss
The Vertigo of Bliss
was released on 16 June, to positive reviews which focused on the more experimental style of the album in comparison to Blackened Sky, as well as the introduction of string sections.[10] After touring relentlessly for The Vertigo of Bliss, the band retreated to Monnow Valley Studio in Monmouth, Wales to record a follow-up album. As with the previous album, two singles were released before the actual album: "Glitter and Trauma" and "My Recovery Injection" on 9 August and 20 September respectively. An additional digital download was also released on 31 May, called "There's No Such Thing As A Jaggy Snake". On 4 October, the band's third album, Infinity Land
Infinity Land
was released, followed by the final single from the album, "Only One Word Comes To Mind", on 14 February 2005. On 16 February, the band performed a cover of Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out" live from Maida Vale

show. Simon Neil's side project Marmaduke Duke also released an album in 2005, known as The Magnificent Duke. He toured the UK together with the Johnston twins accompanying on bass and drums. 2006–2008: Puzzle and mainstream success[edit]

In 2006, Biffy Clyro

left Beggars Banquet and signed a deal with 14th Floor, an offshoot of Warner Bros. In September, the band went to Canada to record their fourth album at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver (where it was engineered by Mike Fraser), and The Farm Studio in Gibsons. From these sessions the song "Semi-Mental" was released as a digital download on 25 December. On 5 March 2007 "Saturday Superhouse" was released, reaching No. 13 on the UK Singles Chart, the band's highest single chart position to date. Puzzle was released in June and helped the band to reach their highest UK Albums Chart
UK Albums Chart
position ever, hitting No. 2 in the first week of release, also reaching No. 17 in Ireland, and No. 39 in the overall world charts. The album is certified Gold in the UK, having sold over 220,000 copies, and as of February 2009 has sold over 300,000 worldwide. This album is notable for having somewhat more straightforward song structures and a more melodic overall sound than their previous work, while still retaining some more unusual elements.[11] Puzzle was voted the best album of 2007 by Kerrang! and Rock Sound. On 25 August, it was announced that "Machines" would be the next single from Puzzle, which was released on 8 October. Support slots for acts such as Muse (at the new Wembley Stadium), The Who, Red Hot Chili Peppers

and The Rolling Stones

were significant in expanding Biffy's fan base. The band also played the Download 2007, Glastonbury 2007, Reading and Leeds Festival

at Twickenham during the Lost Highway Tour. In December 2008 the band played their biggest headline shows, including a date at Glasgow's 10,000 capacity SECC. 2008–2010: Only Revolutions[edit] The band released a new single entitled "Mountains" in July 2008, which reached No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart
UK Singles Chart
– the band's first song to reach the top 10, and their highest charting single to date. "Mountains" would later be included on their new album. In an interview with the NME, the band stated that they had started work on a follow up to Puzzle, with Simon Neil
Simon Neil
saying that the album would include some of the band's "heaviest riffs to date". In an interview with XFM, Ben Johnston revealed that the forthcoming album would be "Oli Coates", and that they already had 16 demos laid down. Simon Neil
Simon Neil
told Kerrang magazine about the new album on 8 December, playfully saying "The soft bits are softer, and the hard bits are harder...", mocking how bands always label their new albums the most heavy and yet melodic so far. The band worked with Puzzle producer Garth Richardson once again at Ocean Way studios. Many videos were shown on the internet of them playing along to Shania Twain's "You're Still the One". A Kerrang! magazine article, published in March 2009, stated that they planned to enter the studio in April, revealing a working title for the upcoming album: "Boom, Blast and Ruin". A series of weekly updates on their official site slowly revealed letters of the new album title, and, after Rock Sound
Rock Sound
mistakenly revealed the album's name as "Only Exceptions", it was officially announced that the album would be titled Only Revolutions. In July 2009, Kerrang reported that they were filming the video for the first single from the album, "That Golden Rule". It was filmed on 1 July in London, with the band saying that the song is "like Kyuss and Tool playing with some Scottish freaks screaming over the top of it." "That Golden Rule" got its first play on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show on 8 July, playing the song twice in a row; it was then announced that the single would be released on 23 August 2009. It went on to reach No. 10 on the UK Singles Chart. Just before the official release of "That Golden Rule", Biffy Clyro
Clyro
performed on the main stage at V Festival, their second appearance at the festival (the first time being in 2006, in a much earlier slot; during their set on the Chelmsford leg, the band experienced power failures twice during the opening song "Glitter and Trauma"). "The Captain" was released as a single on 26 October 2009, following its first radio play on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show on 8 September. Only Revolutions

was released on 9 November 2009. On 24 February 2010, "The Captain" won an NME Award for Best Video.[12][13][14] Biffy Clyro

Simon Neil
stated that the band had come up with "six or seven" riffs for new material, although he did point out that their next album would not be recorded until at least 2015.[citation needed] 2016–present: Ellipsis[edit]

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. He confirmed that a new album was coming, most likely towards the end of 2015. The new album will feature tracks including "Wolves Of Winter", "Friends and Enemies", "Animal Style", "Re-arrange", "Herex”, “Medicine”, “Flammable", “On A Bang", “Small Wishes”, “Howl”, “People”, “Don’t, Won’t, Can’t” (deluxe release only), “In the Name of the Wee Man” (deluxe release only), and a film documenting the recording of Ellipsis (deluxe release only). The first single "Wolves of Winter" was exclusively played as Hottest Record on Monday 21 March 2016 on Radio 1.[19] On Monday 21 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
Clyro
web store. Ellipsis was released on 8 July 2016, entering the UK charts at number 1. Following the successful launch of Ellipsis, the band performed co-headline slots (co-headlining with Fall Out Boy) at the Reading & Leeds festival. The new Ellipsis songs featured prominently in the set list. Between the two headline slots, Biffy Clyro
Clyro
also performed a huge outdoor show in Glasgow, with Fall Out Boy

filling in as the support act. In November 2016, Biffy Clyro

were announced as the Saturday headliners of the Download Festival
Download Festival
2017. This marks their sixth appearance at the festival and their first headline performance on the main stage. [20] To coincide with these headline performances, a U.K. arena tour was announced with Brand New announced as the support act. The tour culminated in a performance at London's O2 arena. In December 2016. In February 2017, Biffy Clyro
Clyro
performed at the Shepherd's Bush Empire as part of Brit's Week to raise money for charity War Child. To celebrate such an intimate performance at this point in their career, the band performed as their own support act with Simon Neil
Simon Neil
announcing "we are Biffy Clyro, circa 2003 to 2005", and they played an hour long set of material from their first three albums. On 27 May 2017, Biffy Clyro
Clyro
performed to 25,000 people at the Radio 1's Big Weekend Hull 2017. They performed the songs Wolves of Winter, Animal Style, Biblical, That Golden Rule, Friends & Enemies, Many of Horror, Bubbles, Rearrange, and Mountains. The band performed at Glastonbury on Sunday 25 June 2017[21]. Artistry[edit] Name[edit] "'Mon the Biffy!" or, in more recent times, "'Mon the Biff!", are well known chants among Biffy fans,[22] usually shouted in between songs at gigs, or before the band comes on stage. The band have never disclosed where the name 'Biffy Clyro' originated, giving a series of stories as to how the name came about. Whilst being interviewed on Soccer AM, the band stated that they named themselves after a footballer named Biffy Clyro
Clyro
who played for South Ayrshire football club Ayr
Ayr
United, whilst admitting at the same time that they also make up stories about how they are named because they are bored with being asked the same question. Another story is that the band members were thinking about manufacturing Cliff Richard
Cliff Richard
merchandise and they thought about the Laszlo Biro
Laszlo Biro
pen and thought of "Cliffy Biro" that was then accidentally spoonerised on a drunken night out to 'Biffy Clyro'. Simon Neil
Simon Neil
appeared to confirm this as the real reason in a 2010 interview with Eve Jackson on France 24, and said that it was "a stupid name" that was often "awkward" to explain its origins when the band started and when not many had heard their music.[23] Another interview claims that the name Biffy Clyro
Clyro
comes from an acronym for "Big Imagination For Feeling Young 'Cos Life Yearns Real Optimism".[24] The band also state in an interview for BalconyTV
BalconyTV
that the band name was that of a Finnish footballer from the 17th century.[25] On Off the Ball in August 2011, Ben Johnston claimed "Well it’s a marriage of two words: Biffy is in fact the nickname of the spy who the James Bond novels were based on and Clyro
Clyro
is a town in Wales where both our families…used to go on holiday…".[26] In an episode of Music Choice's "Pop Quiz", Simon Neil
Simon Neil
explained that Biffy Clyro
Clyro
is the name of a Scotsman that built his own rocket and was the first man in space.[27] Musical influences[edit] The band cite influences ranging from heavy metal luminaries like Metallica
Metallica
to prog legends Rush, while reviewers are often quick to link their sound to the likes of Nirvana and Foo Fighters
Foo Fighters
– particularly in their use of shifting dynamics, which they adapted from Pixies
Pixies
and Fugazi.[28] Mark Z. Danielewski's second novel Only Revolutions
Only Revolutions
was influential for the album Only Revolutions; the band have since met Danielewski, discovering that he was a fan when he attended one of their shows.[23] Band members[edit]
