Biffy Clyro - Victory Over The Sun tab

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
