coldplayband2009Coldplay is currently on tour here in the US and soon will head over to Europe. They have an amazing line-up of artists out with them. Jay-Z, Girls Aloud and White Lies, the band will also be supported by Flaming Lips, Bat For Lashes, Datarock, Killians, Howling Bells, Ministri, The Sunday Drivers, Moi Caprice, Miss Montreal and Pegasus. On top of all that they are already starting to plan for their new follow up project to 2008’s “Viva La Vida.” Frontman Chris Martin told the Philadelphia Enquirer

The next one [album] will be quite stripped down and based upon this story idea, which I can’t talk about because it might be bad,”  “I think at the end of this tour, we may not tour for a while. We may put out a record without quite so much fanfare.” Excellent business plan!

Chris also gave them an update on guitarist Joe Satriani and Yusuf Islam, a.k.a. Cat Stevens’ plagiarism accusations directed at the band’s 2008 song “Viva La Vida.”

We’ve never had a hit that big before. So I don’t know if it’s to do with it’s the only song that’s been that famous. Or that there’s a musical phrase within it that does pop up in a lot of other things we’ve now heard. But on my grandfather’s life, I promise that I didn’t mean to do anything wrong. If there was any basis in truth, I wouldn’t be offended at all. But on this one, it just makes me feel, ‘OK, I’ll have to prove that it’s not true by writing better songs.
