Biffy Clyro are a Scottish rock band that formed in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire in 1995, composed of singer and songwriter Simon Neil (born August 31, 1979 in Irvine, North Ayrshire) on guitar and lead vocals, and twin brothers; singer and songwriter James Johnston on bass and vocals, and Ben Johnston on drums and vocals (born April 25, 1980). Biffy Clyro’s beginnings saw Simon, James and Ben form a combo called Skrewfish, which also featured guitarist Boyan Chowdury, who left in 1997. Biffy Clyro made a significant chart breakthrough with their fourth album Puzzle, released in 2007, and have since scored a pair of UK Official Album Chart Number 1s, with 2013’s Opposites and 2016’s Ellipsis. Biffy Clyro also had the unlikely situation of penning 2010’s UK Official Singles Chart Christmas Number 1, when X Factor winner Matt Cardle released When We Collide (a renamed song called Many Of Horror) which gave Biffy their highest single position of Number 8 when their fans bought the original the same week. Biffy Clyro were nominated for the BRIT Awards for Best British Group in 2011 and 2017.
