12 Coldplay Months of 2011: August

Recommended Posts

August was a very exciting month for Coldplayers all over the world. It was peppered with festival dates, LP5 news and glorious, glorious redemption: Confirmation of Mylo Xyloto’s existence! The experience was nerving and tumultuous for avid Coldplay fans.

 

NEWS

Coldplay rumors were running rampant! The buildup for the as-yet-untitled LP5 was astounding. The most pressing question was: What will the new album be called? Here are a few examples of failed rumors, both ridiculous and fairly good guesses. Essentially, all we were given was a quote provided by Chris in a January interview: It most likely "Starts with an M. Two words."

 

Some lovely ideas:

 

1. Mnemonics and Murals (from a YouTube comment that was deleted)

2. Mutagenic Xylobrytes (Thanks to the now-banned Coldplayer1317. He was great.)

3. Major Minus

 

But finally, on August 12, we got redemption, with this image, early in the morning. Thanks to EMI Central America for tipping us, (

Coldplayers were of course up to receive the following image on the official Coldplay site:

...and an era was born. The title is quite possibly the most debated piece of Coldplay history to date. Here are a few (over)reactions of lovely Coldplayers:

 

I'm currently screaming into my pillow!!! AAAAAAAHHHH!

HAHA SUCK IT HATERS

 

FUCKING BRILLIANT TITLE

 

GREAT SLEUTHING

 

So, it was well-received and panned alike.

 

That was the big news, but here are some other highlights.

 

Mixing in Los Angeles, CA, USA

 

Celebrity shenanigans (Always hilarious)

 

Fix You covered by 40 artists for charity

 

 

CONCERTS

 

A new album means PROMOTION. Which was a total WIN for Coldplayers this Summer ***insert shameless plug for Lollapalooza here (I was there and it was totally badass)***

 

Unfortunately, though, there were only TWO festival dates for August. Then: Will, Jonny, Chris, and Guy took a much-needed two-week break from their awesomeness.

 

ATT/Samsung Summer Crush Concert Series: Los Angeles, CA, USA

 

This concert was recorded and broadcast on Jimmy Kimmel. Here's some pictures:

Oh yeah, and this video was from that concert. What a douchebag:

Lollapalooza: Chicago, IL, USA (August 5)

 

I was here and it was awesome. Need I say more?

 

Here's a picture. To be honest, they're all kind of the same.

....and that was August! A great month indeed.

 

Thank you, and now, I must be going. :escaping:

 

Let me know if you'd like me to add a poll or anything. Or if I blatantly forgot something. Thanks for the great opportunity!

Great job, Brent. May and August were certainly the best months for Coldplayers this year.
