Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes has accused Coldplay of “jackin our steez” over the band’s rumoured new artwork.
As reported yesterday (October 30), Coldplay fans are speculating that a mysterious poster spotted on a London Underground platform could be the artwork to new album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’. The design features a colourful ‘flower of life’ geometric pattern and a date in December.
Fans of the group have taken to social media to claim the advert is for Coldplay’s seventh album, citing a similar design on frontman Chris Martin’s T-shirt at the recent Global Citizen Festival in New York.
However, one person not excited by the poster is Oli Sykes who raised comparisons between the design and that of his band’s 2013 album ‘Sempiternal’. Writing on Twitter he said Coldplay were “jackin our steez hard.” Sykes designed the cover of the album himself.
Coldplay are yet to confirm that the underground posters have anything to do with them. NME has contacted a spokesperson for the band but has not yet received a reply. Bring Me The Horizon released ‘Sempiternal’ in 2013. It features the singles ‘Shadow Moses’ and ‘Sleepwalking’.
