Biffy Clyro are an alternative music trio, hailing from Ayrshire in Scotland. Formed in 1995, Simon Neil, James and Ben Johnston originally went by the name of Screwfish, but later changed to the unique Biffy Clyro for reasons unknown (although many believe it came from a Cliff Richard biro - the "Cliffy Biro").
Their first release came in 1999, with the three-track Iname, then in 2000 came the thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow four-track EP, which was released on the Electric Honey Record label, an Indie label run by students at Stow College, Glasgow.
Three albums in three years followed in '02, '03, and '04, with the releases of Blackened Sky, The Vertigo of Bliss, and Infinity Land, respectively, on the Beggars Banquet label (home to Oceansize). Biffy have also released eleven singles on the label since 2000, building a large catalogue of b-sides in a relatively short amount of time.
Despite the lack of a full-length release in 2005, Biffy have by no means slowed down their hectic schedule, and regularly tour the UK, and indeed elsewhere around the globe. They have also played many festivals over the last few years, most notably T in the Park, Reading & Leeds, Truck and Buk&Skit. At the end of 2005 they played four shows in four nights at the legendary King Tuts in Glasgow, showcasing the whole of one album per night and the much anticipated fourth album.
Finally, on Christmas Day 2006, the band released 'Semi-Mental' as a download-only single, followed by the first single from the new album Puzzle, 'Saturday Superhouse' on 5th March 2007. The second single, 'Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies', will be released on May 14th.
