Biffy Clyro are on track to score their third number one album.

The rock trio’s eighth studio album, A Celebration Of Endings, is outperforming the rest of the top five combined, according to the Official Charts Company’s mid-week update.

The album, which follows on from their soundtrack to the 2019 film Balance, Not Symmetry, has also earned the most physical and download sales of the week so far.

The Scottish band previously scored two number ones with 2013’s Opposites and 2016’s Ellipsis.

Indie rockers Sea Girls are at number two in the provisional rankings with their debut album, Open Up Your Head.

Manic Street Preachers’ lead singer James Dean Bradfield is at number three with his first solo studio album in 14 years, Even In Exile. The Welsh frontman could score his first top ten as a solo artist.

Brighton folk-punk band Levellers are at number four with Peace, their first album in eight years.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s Folklore has slipped from number one to number five.
