Artist: Biffy Clyro
Song: Victory Over The Sun
Album: Opposites

Ok here goes, this is my first tab so be gentle
Biffy's new album is amazing and this is definitely one of the best songs on it, 
so figured it needed a solid tab - I've tried to go through every single part and 
make sure it matches, but overall it works even if there are mistakes - please 
comment if you find any

Little correction, but I think the funky section is supposed to be:
D#-------------------------|
A#--------7--------7-8-7---|
F#----7-9------7-9---------|
C#--9--------9-------------|
G#-------------------------|
C#-------------------------|

Yes Deltast0rm is correct regarding the funky section. Other than that though great tab, thank you!

I was listening to the song and at the funky section i'm sure it slides into both 9s. So it would be something like:

D#--------------------------------|
A#------------7-----------7-8-7---|
F#-----7--8/9------7--8/9---------|
C#--8/9--------8/9----------------|
G#--------------------------------|
C#--------------------------------|
