Simon Neil and co will be joined by special guests Architects on the jaunt, which kicks off at Leeds' First Direct Arena on November 5, and includes a stop at London's The O2 arena on November 12, before concluding in Bournemouth on November 15.

The tour news comes after the 'Bubbles' rockers headlined Download Festival for the second time on June 12.

The Scottish band released their ninth studio album, 'The Myth Of The Happily Ever After', in October.

They also gave fans a fly-on-the-wall look into the making of the record with the Amazon Prime documentary, 'Biffy Clyro: Cultural Sons of Scotland'.

The trio - completed by twins Ben and James Johnston - returned to Ayrshire to create the follow-up to 2020's 'A Celebration of Endings' in the intimate setting of a farm amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film follows "the band's ups and downs and their newfound approach to their creativity."

The journey concludes with the 'Many of Horror' group returning to the stage with a sold-out outdoor show at Glasgow Green in September 2021, for what marked their first show in their homeland in almost two years.

Speaking of the film, frontman Simon said: "In the same part of the world as I wrote my very first song is where we're making this record, and there's something really pure about that."
