Coldplay on Hold

(antiMusic) The Evening Standard is reporting that Coldplay plan to take a long vacation after their world tour concludes. Frontman Chris Martin proclaimed that Coldplay plan to "go into hiding" as the band picked up a Brit Award for album of the year earlier this week.

"People are fed up with us - and so are we," Martin told the crowd. "We won't see you for a long time. I mean it. It's going to be years before we have the chance to say this again."

The London paper says a spokesperson confirmed that the band would go on break following the conclusion of their current World Tour. The proclamations caused some to speculate that the band was calling it a day; however, their record label EMI has a different spin on the news. A rep for the label told NME, "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."
