Biffy Clyro have revealed that the new material they have been writing for their sixth studio album is "really obscure".

The Scottish rockers, who first hinted that they were planning to start work on a new LP in March of this year and promised to "bring different elements" to their sound, told BBC 6 Music that their new tracks touched upon influences including country-prog and goth-rock.

Speaking about the sessions for the new record, frontman Simon Neil said:

We've got some really obscure things going on. We've got a kind of prog country song, which we never thought we'd do, and some weird kind of math rock stuff meets almost goth rock. It's hard to explain just yet but there are moments that are odd.


The singer also joked that the band had so much new material that they might be unable to fit it on a single LP, adding: "We're working pretty hard. We're now up to about 30 songs so maybe a double album, the dreaded 'D' word."

Biffy Clyro debuted the brand new track 'The Joke's On Us' earlier this summer, while playing at the Ibiza Rocks festival in Ibiza (July 20), and revealed to NME that they already had around 22 new tracks written for their new album.

The as-yet-untitled forthcoming sixth studio LP will be the follow-up to their 2009 effort 'Only Revolutions'. The band also released a live CD/DVD titled Revolutions: Live From Wembley earlier this year, which was recorded at Wembley Arena in London last December.
