POPULAR

Biffy are one of my favourite bands. A threepiece metal/screamo/punk/stadium rock/whatever the hell they feel like playing band from Kilmarnock, Scotland, they've become incredibly popular on this side of the Atlantic in the last couple of years. They started out sounding like Scotland's answer to Nirvana, went through a mental experimental phase, and ended up sounding like Scotland's answer to the Foo Fighters, except even more incredibly epic. Those of you who follow the British X Factor might know them since they wrote the winning song, Many Of Horror/When We Collide (a fact no one in the band is proud of).

They've got 5 studio albums, and a double album coming out shortly after Uno! The first single, Stingin' Belle, is here for you to sample.



I'd recommend them to anyone, they have such an incredibly varied style. No matter what you're into, you'll find a song of theirs that you'll fall in love with. My entire family have, as varied in musical tastes as we are.

P.S. Ladies, the consensus is that the frontman, Simon Neil, is one of the hottest guys in rock at the moment. I'll leave you to decide ;)

A NOTE TO ANYONE LOOKING TO GET INTO BIFFY

 

Listen to this album first :)

 

And then these, for their earlier stuff.

Exactly my thinking! I went back nearly 3 years and couldn't find one, unbelievable.

Apparently they have a tap dancer and a mariachi band on the new album, as well as bagpipes. Can't wait to see how that goes.

I really love some of their songs (the softer ones specially), the guy's voice is pretty amazing. :D

Yeah, I guess that's the better way to describe them... There are songs I can't stand, and other I love!

I guess I'm just biased because I love all of their songs, haha :D

He's a phenomenal singer though. Can't believe they're not bigger.

Well, tickets at the O2 are usually between €40-€60. I'm hoping they won't be too much more than €40.

I wasn't into them back when they toured Puzzle, and I missed them on the Only Revolutions tour. I'm pretty damn excited about seeing them, to say the least.

A common enough mistake, haha. His name is Simon Neil.

You should listen to more of their stuff, they're incredible. Only Revolutions, the album Mountains is from, is probably their most accessible. Kinda like a Scottish Foo Fighters.
