Their label, 14th Floor records, will be streaming a further two songs from the very same Christmas day. And an album - 'Puzzle' - will be released sometime after Hogmanay.
I don't know why, but the thought of this warms the casing of my chilly November heart. And I don't even like Biffy Clyro. Or at least nowhere near to the extent that their rabid army of fans do. I think I just like the memories of olde, where I'd open the new Championship Manager at 8am, installing it at 5 past, and then playing it for 20 hours straight, breaking only to stuff my fat face with pigs-in-blankets.
