Thank the comic book alien gods, cause Coldplay's next album will NOT be named after the lead character in their music-comic concept project!!

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin recently discussed the band's forthcoming musical venture, and its title will apparently be far easier on the tongue than Mylo Xyloto.

Martin dished:

Coldplay's Comic Book Comes Alive In Hurts Like Heaven Video! WATCH HERE!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTVColdplayComic Books

Ooo this illustrated world of darkness and repression is a far cry from Coldplay's Paradise!!

In the band's latest video for Hurts Like Heaven, we get to see Coldplay's comic book character Mylo Xyloto in all his renegade alien action (above)!

The cartoon in this video, AND the album of the same name, are all part of a multi-media collaboration project between Coldplay and famed director/writer Mark Osbourne, and while we're not SUPER big on the actual Hurt Like Heaven tune, we are loving this alien adventure story!

We wonder if this video comes straight from the Mylo Xyloto comic books, the first issue of which will be released February 2013?

We can't wait to get our hands on that comic and totally geek out for an hour or two! We wanna see if Coldplay are as good at constructing a fantastical, science fiction universe as they are at creating ear-pleasing songs!

Coldplay's Secret Mylo Xyloto Comic Book Concept!

Filed under: Music MinuteColdplayComic Books

Well welly well, Coldplay!

Masterminding a creative concept project over many years that combines music, art, and storytelling???

THAT IS AWESOME GALACTIC SPACE SAUCE!!!

It seems that Coldplay's latest studio album Mylo Xyloto isn't just a spectacular record, it's also a musical companion to a whole comic book universe, whose main character is called Mylo Xyloto!

Famed director/writer Mark Osbourne co-created the comic and its menagerie of characters with Coldplay, and is now FINALLY allowed to talk about this epic construction!

Osbourne reveals:

"[The comic series] is the story of Mylo Xyloto, a young Silencer on the front lines of a war against sound and color in the world of Silencia. Mylo discovers that the enemy he's been trained to hate his whole life might not be the enemy after all. Like many Silencers, he was raised in an orphanage and conditioned to be a Silencer from a very young age. Legions of Silencers were created after the Great War of Colors took many lives, including the lives of Mylo's parents Aiko and Lela. That war threatened the safety of the citizens and strict measures were put in place to ensure it would never happen again. At the start of our story, Mylo is not so sure that all the propaganda and strict measures are legitimate, but he keeps these concerns close to his vest since they are just vague feelings that even his best friend Rex can't quite support."

HOLY STELLAR SHIZ BALLZ! We want it and we want it now!!!

But, apparently there are only six issues being released monthly starting February 2013, and the amount will be limited!!

Booo!

However, if you are heading over to Comic-Con this Friday, members of the Mylo Xyloto creative team will be there to divulge MORE cray cray details at 1pm!

Huzzah!
