Coldplay speak out on split rumours

Tongues are wagging after the BRIT Awards

Coldplay have hit out at claims they’re to split.

Speaking from the stage at last night’s (February 15) BRIT Awards singer Chris Martin hinted the band would move out of the public eye once the promotion for current album ’X&Y’ was complete.

“People are fed up with us and so are we,” he said. “You won’t see us at one of these for many, many years. We mean it.”

However, the band’s label have hit back at reports that this means the band are splitting up.

A spokesperson told NME.COM: “Coldplay are not quitting. They are on the road until July, when their 16-month ’X&Y’ World Tour ends in Japan. They will then continue working on new material.”

The group’s next single will be ’The Hardest Part’, which is out in April.
