Happiness is a curious thing.
Take Biffy Clyro: a band who have fought for ten years to get into the position they're now in, the Scottish group's new album (a double, no less) is actually one of their most troubled works.
Fuelled by depression, anxiety, alcohol issues and the odd relationship trauma it's one of the more challenging major league rock efforts to come from these Isles. Out now, 'Opposites' raced to the top of the charts and is now set to be followed by what might rank as the band's most ambitious tour yet.
Yet their troubles don't seem to be over. Biffy Clyro have shared the new video for album track 'Biblical' - a clip which features Simon Neil in a strangely sterile environment.
Walking with clear intent, the frontman shoves someone in a hotel pool before helping a young child. Walking far away from his home, the frontman is then attacked by a gang of strangers before the clip comes to an end.
Watch it now.
