Coldplay move into London bakery
The band find a new home in the capital
Coldplay Coldplay have set-up station in North London for the first time since their student days in 1999.

The band have taken over an abandoned bakery in Primrose Hill to use as a band HQ during the release of their new album 'Viva La Vida', which is released in June. they'll use the former shop, located in one of London's most upmarket boroughs, to rehearse and run their business affairs from for the next few months, and front man Chris Martin says he can't wait to get the band together.

"I used to walk past it every day," he tells NME. "For years I used to walk past it and think, 'What an ugly place'. Then, one day, a 'to let' sign appeared outside. I thought, 'Hmm, that place is so ugly, I bet no one would bother us if we move in there'."

"It's the first time we've had a proper band home since we were rehearsing in my student bedroom in 1999," Guitarist Jonny Buckland added.

The band release a new single 'Violet Hill' as a free download for one week only from their official website from 12.15pm today.
