It's fair to say that over the last few months, Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" has been almost impossible to escape. It's been used on adverts and TV Shows along with having multiple daily plays on almost every radio station imaginable. Let's add a new direction for the track then shall we as Biffy Clyro chose to cover the infectious track while on Dermot O'Leary's BBC Radio 2 Saturday slot. Check out their acoustic take on the track below or re-listen to the entire show and interview over here.

I have a habit of playing music I love far too much. This year I've done it with a few albums already. This image kind of sums up my feelings towards music in general. Anyway with that in mind I've seriously given Biffy Clyro's latest studio release, Opposites, some heavy play. Multiple plays on a weekly basis and when it was released it was pretty much all I listened to for a month. I'm not kidding. Yet I still absolutely love it, and it's nice to see Biffy still offering up fans new stuff for fans on the regular. At the start of the month they released a live video of them performing "Different People" live at London's 20,000 capacity O2 arena, and today they give us a peek at them in the same venue rocking through "Black Chandelier" . Check out the video at the top.
Opposites is out now.
We can't give Biffy Clyro enough praise this year following the release of their fantastic double LP, Opposites. They've gone from strength to strength since the release, headlining their largest tour to date, supporting Muse and playing a string of US dates including Coachella. Today they offer up the official video clip for the track "Opposite" which sees a rather warped look at the world. It also sees the Simon, James and Ben being involved in a huge car crash and the horror that follows is pretty gripping. It's also a nice road safety ad. Always wear a seatbelt! Check it out above.
Opposites is out now
Biffy Clyro this year launched themselves into the stratosphere of UK rock arena status with the release of their double album Opposites. They played their largest headline tour of the UK too playing the likes of Manchester's MEN Arena and London's O2 Arena. The latter of which seems to have been recorded. Stereogum have premiered a live video for my personal favourite track from the new record, "Different People". Rocking the 20,000 strong London arena like no other, they put on a fantastic show and the flashing imagery of the recording gives you a bit of feeling for what their recent tour was like.
If you're still not familiar with the band, we had an exclusive track-by-track chat with them through the release which can be seen over here.
The band will support Muse on some upcoming European Stadium dates along with headlining Reading and Leeds Festivals in August. 2013 is the year of the Bif!
Along with hundreds of bands last weekend, the now arena dominating Biffy Clyro released a limited edition 7" for Record Store Day. On it you got a live rendition of their single "Black Chandelier" and a completely new, previously unheard track called "City of Dreadful Night". It's taken a little longer for it to appear online than I'd of thought but hey, we've got the goods for you guys now and you can listen to it below.
Biffy just wrapped up performances at Coachella and have some festival and arena dates with Muse scheduled for June onwards, dates of which can be found over here. Their number one double LP Opposites is out now.
All week we've been getting some exclusive videos from Scottish band Biffy Clyro in which they've been talking through their new album Opposites.

Today we get their opinions and thoughts on album closer, "Picture A Knife Fight". You can check out the video clip above along with streaming the track in full below. I've had this album on repeat for months and it's the gift that just keeps on giving. Seriously.
Opposites is out now and we suggest you pick up a copy of it over here.

This week we've been treating you guys to some interesting bits of video from Biffy Clyro, in which they talk us through their fantastic new double LP, Opposites. Today is no different and following videos about "The Thaw", "A Girl and His Cat", and "Accident Without Emergency" we today get a look at what the band have to say about the rather intriguing sounding "Spanish Radio". The track itself is one that'll grab your attention immediately when you hear the album, what with it featuring a mariachi band! They talk about the difficulties the guest musicians had with the timings and of drinking plenty of tequila after recording. Along with that you can stream the track in full below to see what they're talking about with a little more context. We'll have our final part of this series coming tomorrow, so keep your eyes pointed towards SKoA.
We've already enjoyed some delightful tidbits from Biffy Clyro over the past couple of days.

We have some more clips left for you in the coming days, and today we get another slice of goodness along with an inside look at what the three gents have to say about "Accident Without Emergency". See what Simon, Ben and James talk about above, and stream the track in full below. Turns out this track came about pretty damn quickly from inception to demoing! Keep your eyes peeled up until the weekend for some more exclusive videos.
