I admit it. When I first heard the name Biffy Clyro, I figured they would most definitely suck. And not just suck. They would suck at heights that only a band named Biffy Clyro could. Last year, a buddy of mine at Roadrunner sent me a copy of Puzzle, their criminally underrated masterpiece. I did and still do stand corrected. Biffy Clyro is fucking brilliant. Every song is great. Every b-side is stellar. Every cover they do makes the original sound like dog shit being pushed thru a Play Doh machine. Biffy Clyro is indeed awesome.
They have a new LP coming out soon, hopefully before the end of the year. The dudes are streaming a video for their new jam "That Golden Rule" on their website (and you can view it below as well). It's the most aggressive they've been in a minute...Just a barnburner of a track.
My point in all of this is: a)Don't misjudge bands with ridiculous names and B)This particular band with said name is damn near flawless and everyone should go buy all of their records and import singles with neato b-sides.
