Biffy Clyro Reveal New Album Artwork After Barrage Of Fan Tweets

Written by Kiel Egging on October 20, 2012

Biffy Clyro unveiled the artwork for their brand new album Opposites in unique fashion overnight – via a Twitter hashtag overload.

Every time a fan tweeted the band with the hashtag #biffyopposites, a piece of the artwork was revealed on Biffy’s website until the entire album sleeve was revealed. NME reports that the hastag was used a whopping 9,000+ times in just 12 hours.

The Scottish rockers brought in longtime artwork collaborator Storm Thorgerson to do the cover for Opposites. Thorgerson – who has also done cover art for the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Muse – designed the artwork for the band’s previous two albums Only Revolutions and Puzzle.

Opposites – which was produced by Garth Richardson in Los Angeles earlier this year – will be released in either January or February 2013. NME reports that the album will consist of 20-tracks and will be split into two sections, The Sand at the Core of Our Bones and The Land at the End of Our Toes. Can I hear the words ‘double album’ ringing in your ears?

Biffy Clyro last visited our shores in December 2010, where they supported Muse on their arena tour, and did a couple of their own shows as well. There’s no news just yet on when they’ll be down here again.
