Coldplay’s New Album Might Be Their Last

Good news, Coldplay fans; the band will be releasing a new album.

But sadly, the good news also comes with some bad news; it might be the band’s last record, at least according to frontman Chris Martin.

Martin was on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier in the day to celebrate the band’s song, “Magic” from Ghost Stories, being named the “Hottest Record of the Year.”

While on the show, Martin revealed that less than a year after releasing Ghost Stories (which was released earlier this year), the band had headed into the studio to record some new music. What came from that recording session would become their seventh album which at present time is tentatively titled, A Head Full of Dreams.

While discussing the record, Martin compared A Head Full of Dreams to the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, giving the impression that this might be the band;s final record.

“It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something,” said Martin.

He added, “I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it.”

Even if the seventh album does become their last, one thing Martin has promised fans is that they will be heading out on tour in support of the record which we can assume will not be like the Ghost Stories tour which only included six stops, worldwide.

Anberlin Release “Stranger Ways” Video

Anberlin’s new album Lowborn is due out tomorrow, which for fans of the Florida-based band is bittersweet in a  way.

This new album, will be the last that the band will be releasing before they disband, but that also means some new music unlike what some other bands that we like have done in the past.

For the last week, Anberlin had given fans the chance to listen to Lowborn a week ahead of time on Pandora. The album sounds like what happens when you combine their musical career into ten tracks.

During the weekend, they released the music video for one of the tracks, “Stranger Ways.”

If the Vans Warped Tour has yet to hit a city near you, don’t forget to check Anberlin out as they have been on the full tour. In addition, they are still in the process of announcing tour dates for their “FINAL” tour before the disbandment becomes official, so keep and eye out for that.
