Biffy Clyro have released a video for their track Animal Style.

It features on the Scottish outfit’s upcoming album Ellipsis, which is out on July 8 and available for pre-order through the band’s official website.

Biffy frontman Simon Neil previously said they wouldn’t rush the follow-up to 2013’s Opposites.

He said: “On this one, when I say stripped back, it’s not going to sound skeletal or anything but perhaps a bit more aggressive. Coming off the back of a double album, it’s important to be really concise.”

Biffy Clyro are currently on tour across Europe.
