Bring Me The Horizon Call Bullshit On Rumoured Coldplay Cover Art

Your Dad’s favourite band Coldplay are teasing the release of their upcoming new album, and as we reported yesterday, are apparently doing so by putting up mysterious posters on the London underground, featuring a kaleidoscopic circle design and the date December 5th.

People have been quick to put together the clues to pretty much confirm it’s about Coldplay, matching the logo to their website and even Chris Martin’s shirt, but that’s not all the ever-probing internet has unearthed, with many pointing out the similarities of the design to Bring Me The Horizon’s cover art for album Sempiternal.

Which is all good and well as the internet is the internet BUT shit’s gotten slightly more real since the story broke, with BMTH frontman Oli Sykes taking to twitter to call out Coldplay for, and I quote “jackin our steez hard.” (/extremely british voice)

Although Coldplay are yet to confirm whether or not the poster and its art has anything to do with them, it wouldn’t be the first time the pop-rock outfit have been accused of nicking other band’s ideas. Remember that whole ‘Walking through Newtown and singing’ thing they did, which was incredibly similar to Sticky Fingers’ music video?

Get your hands off it Coldplay…
