The quintessential ten-year overnight success story, Scottish rock band Biffy Clyro spent the past decade and a half building a cult following of obsessive fans, before breaking through to daytime radio playlists and major festival bills with their fourth album, Puzzle.
They followed up that success with Only Revolutions at the end of 2009, which continued to explore the chart-friendly facets of Biffy's complex alternative rock sound, characterised by dramatic dynamics, earnest-but-quirky lyrics and crazy time signatures.
A comparatively small number of listeners provided a whopping 4.2 million scrobbles for Only Revolutions, demonstrating the rewarding depths of the band's sound as well as their fans' loyal commitment. Despite turning off some long-term Biffy lovers with the glossy sheen of singles like 'Many of Horror', 'Bubbles' and 'Mountains' – which also appeared on chart pop compilation That's Now What I Call Music! 71 – these three tracks now proudly occupy the top three spots of Biffy Clyro's Last.fm chart.
