Biffy Clyro

Biffy Clyro at Radio X

Beginning as three school friends from Kilmarnock, Scotland, Biffy Clyro spent their early days playing gigs around Glasgow where they studied.

They were signed to Beggars Banquet after playing on the unsigned stage at festival T in the Park in 2000.

Since then, the band have released a string of albums varying in style. Their early work (the albums Blackened Sky, The Vertigo of Bliss, and Infinity Land) drew from heavier rock influences, generating a dissonant, uncompromising sound.

Their later work (Puzzle, Only Revolutions, and Opposites) had a more mainstream feel to it, with tracks like Saturday Superhouse, Folding Stars, Who’s Got A Match, and Mountains propelling the them into the mainstream.

Despite having one of their biggest tracks, Many Of Horror (When We Collide), covered by X Factor winner Matt Cardle, Biffy Clyro have only grown in popularity.

As well as playing all over the world and picking up a string of awards along the way, they headlined Reading and Leeds Festival in August 2013. Their style and look may have changed dramatically over the years, but you can still hear the sound of Kilmarnock in Simon Neil’s unfaltering vocal delivery.
