Biffy Clyro chart Scotland’s football journey in new Euro 2020 performance and montage video
Though the band’s home country of Scotland sadly lost their opening game of the Euros today (June 14), Biffy Clyro shared a brilliant, uplifting performance and montage video before the team’s game against the Czech Republic.
The Kilmarnock trio performed a glorious rendition of 2007 album Puzzle’s track Now I’m Everyone, with footage of Simon Neil, and James and Ben Johnston, doing what they do best interspersed with videos and footage of Scottish football.
“Rock band Biffy Clyro chart Scotland’s long and painful wait to play at a major international men’s football tournament with a special performance of Now I’m Everyone,” say the BBC.

In other news, Biffy confirmed in May that they’d recently finished work on their “amazing” new album.
“Originally it was going to be completely hand-in-hand,” said frontman Simon of what was initially supposed to be A Celebration Of Endings’ sister record. “They do relate, but because we didn’t tour I ended up writing about seven or eight new songs for the album. Originally it was intended to be a few off-cuts from A Celebration Of Endings, but now it’s got wonderful new art and it’s kind of its own beast.”
Simon also recently announced his own six-part radio show for the BBC, documenting his love of music, and the songs that have shaped his personal and professional life.
With headliners Queens Of The Stone Age dropping out due to “restrictions and logistics”, the mighty Biffy Clyro are now playing Reading & Leeds 2021.
