Studio rep denies Coldplay hiatus rumors

Oct. 3, 2006 at 9:11 PM   |   Comments

LONDON, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- A Capitol Records representative tells MTV News the British band Coldplay is not taking a five-year break from producing music.

MTV.com said representative Ambrosia Healy informed the TV network ongoing Internet rumors -- that Coldplay members were going to leave the music industry for five years to focus on their individual families -- are entirely false.

"The band is enjoying a much-deserved break, which I think everybody already knows," Healy told MTV News via an e-mail. "No, there isn't a self-imposed 'five-year hiatus.'"

Healy's statement came hours after several Internet Web sites reported that the birth of Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman's daughter two weeks ago, along with recent births for singer Chris Martin and drummer Will Champion, led the band to the hiatus decision.

While Healy confirmed that the addition to Berryman's family will not delay a new Coldplay album by five years, she offered no clues regarding a timetable for a new album from the "X&Y" band, said MTV.com.

"There isn't a timetable for them recording the follow-up to X&Y," she wrote. "They're enjoying not having a plan at the moment. Isn't that what a break is all about?"
