Biffy Clyro commence work on album five in Los Angeles
Biffy Clyro will begin recording their fifth album on 26 April in Los Angeles.
Following up to 2007's Puzzle, all the tracks have already been written.
The Ayrshire band will spend three months recording with producer G-G-Garth Richardson in America.
Lead singer Simon Neil said: "We go in [to the studio] on Monday to start work on album number five - we'll be doing that until the end of July and then we've got a couple of festivals."
Elaborating on the sessions the singer said: "We're going to work with Garth again who did Puzzle - we've got a really good relationship with him now. We'll be a lot more relaxed.
"We've got all the tunes written. We're going to do it in a month then take a couple of weeks off to do some festivals and then do another month.
"Last time doing it over three months we almost lost our minds - it was too full on.
"This time we're take a breather in the middle and it should hopefully make for a great record."
Buffy Clyro return to the UK this summer to play the Rockness and V Festivals.
