The band are currently recording their sixth studio opus, which they previously revealed will be a double album released in the summer.
Speaking about the recording process, frontman Simon Neil told BBC Radio 1: "We're just investigating and experimenting with what we feel comfortable doing. We haven't got any reggae songs or dubstep."
He added: "There are a couple of songs that are written entirely on keyboards, string sounds, and I guess Phil Collins-type electro beats behind it."
Biffy Clyro were recently confirmed for this year's Isle Of Wight Festival, which will take place between June 22-24 at Seaclose Park, Newport.
