Biffy Clyro have unveiled the artwork for their forthcoming new album 'Opposites' – check it out above.

Each time a fan tweeted the band with the hashtag #biffyopposites, a piece of the artwork was revealed on Biffy's website until the entire album sleeve was revealed. The hastag was used over 9,000 times in 12 hours.

The artwork to 'Opposites' is by Storm Thorgerson, who also designed the covers for the band's previous two albums ‘Only Revolutions’ and ‘Puzzle’. Thorgerson’s work has also appeared on albums by artists including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Muse.

The album is set for release in January or February 2013 and will feature 20-tracks split into two sections, 'The Sand At The Core Of Our Bones' and 'The Land At The End Of Our Toes'. It was produced by Garth Richardson in Los Angeles.

The band recently told NME that while they were recording the album, they were approached by Robbie Williams to play football, while singer Simon Neil was asked to play on the former Take That man's solo record.

Drummer Ben Johnston said: "We got asked to play football at Robbie Williams’ house, but we couldn’t do it because we had stuff to do." Singer Simon Neil added: "I got asked to play a solo on his record too, but I turned it down. I wish all the best for Robbie, but I don’t think he needs my help. Bizarrely, I think Slash is going to play the solo now, which makes the whole thing cooler."
