The alt-rock three-piece is performing songs from their fifth studio album Only Revolutions. The Ayrshire band includes guitarist and lead vocalist Simon Neil, bassist James Johnston and drummer Ben Johnston. Though Neil is the lead vocalist the Johnston brothers also contribute occasional vocals. Their latest release has already reached number eight in the UK chart going gold within days of its release in 2009, platinum in 2010 and was subsequently nominated for a Mercury Music Prize. This built on the previous achievement that was their 2007 album Puzzle, which sold over 100, 000 copies. Biffy Clyro initially built up a small but loyal fan base through the release of their first three studio albums Blackened Sky, The Vertigo Of Bliss and Infinity Land. Following the emotional nature of Puzzle, which was created during the aftermath of the death of vocalist and guitarist Simon Neil's mother, the band wanted to break away from this and create an album filled with unadulterated rock.
