A year later, the more elaborate The Vertigo of Bliss appeared. Constant touring to support the album kept the band busy until mid-2004 when they recorded Infinity Land, which was released late in the year. Three years later the successful single "Saturday Superhouse" announced the coming of their fourth album, Puzzle. In 2009, Biffy Clyro released their fifth studio album, Only Revolutions. Featuring such singles as "Mountains," "Bubbles," and "Many of Horror," the album was both a critical and commercial success, going platinum in 2010 and earning several accolades including a Mercury Music Prize nomination. In 2012, Biffy Clyro released an online video trailer announcing their forthcoming sixth studio album, Opposites. A sprawling, ambitious work balancing prog rock with mainstream, radio-ready pop, Opposites was released in 2013. Buoyed by the single "Black Chandelier," the album became the band's first ever to hit number on the U.K. album charts. The band also spent much of the year headlining their second world tour.
Biffy Clyro returned in 2016 with the full-length album Ellipsis. Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse), the album featured the singles "Wolves of Winter" and "Animal Style." They went on to promote the album with an open-air set in Glasgow, and headlined the Reading & Leeds festival in 2016 and the Download Festival in 2017. November of 2017 saw the group perform a stripped-back, unplugged set at London's prestigious Roundhouse. The performance was released as a live album the following spring and featured a cover of the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows." ~ Mario Mesquita Borges
