Recorded at London’s famous Roundhouse venue last year, the set represented the UK relaunch of the iconic MTV Unplugged series as Biffy follow in the footsteps of influential rock bands who had previously performed as part of the series, such as Nirvana, Oasis, Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and George Michael.
