Biffy Clyro - 'Victory Over The Sun'

Biffy Clyro - 'Victory Over The Sun'

It starts off all acoustic and contemplative, but the thing about Biffy is that they’ve got rock souls that just want to break out, and they will not be denied. Here, they manfully struggle to keep the wolf from the door for a full one minute...

Biffy Clyro

Simon Neil – bare-chested, alone with an acoustic guitar, silhouetted against a white curtain – cuts a lonely figure as he opens Biffy Clyro’s arena tour with an emotionally tender ‘Different People’. His voice breaks as he sings,...

Biffy Clyro - 'Opposites'

Biffy Clyro – ‘Black Chandelier’

They fill arenas, they record albums at LA beach houses, they’ve got really nice upper arms but STILL Biffy are a failure in their loved ones’ eyes. “ You left my heart like an abandoned car ”, wails Simon Neil. “ Old and worn and no use...

Biffy Clyro – ‘Stingin’ Belle’

Biffy Clyro - 'Revolutions: Live At Wembly CD/DVD'

Live Review: Biffy Clyro

Live Review: Biffy Clyro

You should never look back: you’re likely to trip over your laces, step in front of the oncoming car, regret the things you haven’t done rather than the things you have, etc. But it’s unavoidable as a long-standing Biffy Clyro fan when you...

Live Review: Biffy Clyro

It’s taken 15 years for Biffy Clyro to arrive at this moment. Fifteen years of gruelling work, relentless touring and a stunning new album for Simon Neil to stand before Brixton Academy tonight, the adored frontman of a band on the brink of...
