Biffy Clyro follow 2013's critically acclaimed #1 double-album 'Opposites' with their seventh studio album 'Ellipsis,' released on Warner Bros. Records / 14th Floor Recordings!

As is tradition, writing sessions for the album saw Biffy Clyro – Simon Neil (vocals/guitar) and the Johnston brothers James (bass) and Ben (drums) working in the intimate environment of their practice room. They then headed to Los Angeles for recording sessions with producer Rich Costey (Muse, My Chemical Romance, Sigur Ros).

Citing influences as diverse as Tears For Fears' 'Songs From The Big Chair' album, DJ Arca and Deafheaven, Simon Neil has described 'Ellipsis' as "more of a punch to the nose than a big cuddle." Lyrically, the album's songs tackle personal issues with the idea of "fighting back" a recurring theme.

Such themes are also apparent in the album's visceral first single "Wolves of Winter," which captures Biffy Clyro's famous blend of angular riffs, pummelling rhythms and strident hooks. Says Neil: "Wolves of Winter' is about us being wolves on a patch and if you come onto that patch, we'll tear you limb-from-limb."

An 'Ellipsis' indicates a continuation: in this case, Biffy Clyro's new body of work is an ongoing representation of everything that the band have stood for since first debuting in 2002 with the 'Blackened Sky' album.
