Biffy Clyro Release Music Video For "Howl"

Biffy Clyro have released the music video for "Howl." Serving as the trio's first American music video from their new album, Ellipsis, "Howl" is a light-hearted homage to The Shining and David Lynch. In the short film Biffy Clyro enter a bar; events take a seemingly lysergic, twisted trip in which they’re surrounded by a cast of unusual characters: creepy twin sisters, burlesque dancers, a sinister, eye-patched barman and a particularly Twin Peaks-esque band. All three band members feature in bizarre reinventions. The video was directed by Marc Klasfeld, whose previous credits include famous videos for Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Slipknot.

Ellipsis still commands a Top 10 chart position in their native U.K., after shooting straight to #1, upon release. The band's growing international success also saw the album top the charts in Germany, Switzerland and Ireland.
