Coldplay deny split rumours


Story by Jack Foley

COLDPLAY’S label has denied claims that the band is to split following comments made at this week’s Brit Awards.

Rumours about the band’s demise began to speculate following Wednesday night’s ceremony, when lead singer Chris Martin hinted that the band was going to move out of the public eye for a while.

He had just picked up awards for best single (Speed of Sound) and best album (X&Y) when he commented: “People are fed up with us and so are we. You won’t see us at one of these for many, many years. We mean it.”

The comments immediately triggered a media frenzy with one publication even printing a headline the following day stating ‘Coldplay split’.

But the band’s label were quick to deny any such split had occurred and told the NME that the band certainly wasn’t quitting.

According to the NME, Coldplay will be on the road until July, when their 16-month tour ends in Japan, and will then continue to work on new material.

In the meantime, the band will also be releasing the fourth single to be taken from X&Y in the form of The Hardest Part, which is due for release in April.
