Coldplay's Concert Film

Live 2012
Pre-order Launch For Tour Film / Live Album,
Out On CD/DVD, Blu-ray/CD & Digitally On November 20 
EPIX To Exclusively Premiere The Concert Event On November 17
On November 20, Capitol Records will release Coldplay's Live 2012, the band's first concert film / live album in nine years. It documents the group's acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011. Premium network EPIX will premiere the tour film as an EPIX Original Concert Event in the U.S. on TV, online at, and on EPIX apps on hundreds of devices including Xbox consoles, iPads, iPhones, Roku players, and more.

Fans can check out the film's trailer and pre-order Live 2012 now at

The film was directed by Paul Dugdale, who helmed Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall and The Prodigy's Worlds On Fire concert films. Live 2012 includes footage from Coldplay's shows at Paris's Stade de France, Montreal's Bell Centre and last year's triumphant Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury Festival. Coldplay's 2012 outing came in at No. 1 on Billboard's latest ranking of the year's top-grossing tours.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said: "The Mylo Xyloto tour has been the most fun we've ever had as a band. It's felt very uplifting right from the start; partly because we are proud of the music, the LED wristbands, the pyrotechnics, the lasers and all of that stuff, but mainly because of the amazing audiences that we've been playing for. Over the years, our crowd has become more and more a part of the concert itself. They're loud, diverse, full of soul, and make the songs sound much better than we can on our own. We wanted to try to bottle the incredible feeling that they give us, and hence our concert film."

Live 2012 director Paul Dugdale said: "We wanted to make a film that was as intimate as it was epic, punctuating Coldplay's colour-drenched performance with candid portraits of the band. The set is curated from several concerts around the globe, using the 75,000-capacity Stade de France as the backbone. Myself and JA Digital wanted to approach this film in the same way Coldplay approach their stage show: it's essentially a film about people, and we wanted to highlight how the band have blurred the barrier between stage and audience to create a tour that reaches out to everyone from the front row of the stadium to those right at the back. It's a 90 minute kaleidoscope of emotions. My main objective as a filmmaker was to make the viewers' eyes widen and their hearts beat faster."

Live 2012will be available in the U.S. on CD/DVD, Blu-ray/CD and digitally.

Coldplay has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and won numerous awards, including seven GRAMMY®s, seven BRITs, six Q Awards and five MTV Video Music Awards. "Paradise," which won the VMA for Best Rock Video earlier this month, has 150 million views and more than 2.5 million downloads of the single have been sold.

The band has toured the world in support of its latest album, Mylo Xyloto, which scored the most No. 1 rankings of any 2011 album, topping the charts in 34 countries. Mylo Xyloto was Coldplay's third consecutive studio album to debut atop both the Billboard 200 and the U.K. album chart. Rolling Stone praised it as Coldplay's "most ambitious yet" while observed: "Mylo Xyloto works because the band once again manages to sound like Coldplay without sounding like any of their previous LPs, maintaining their stadium-spanning grandeur while subtly challenging preconceptions." "Music this uplifting, this inspirational belongs among the stars," said Q Magazine, awarding the album five stars. The band was recently nominated for a Q Award for Best Act In The World Today and for the Best Rock award at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards.

Alicia on 911

"Maiden Lane" is an original hymn written by Alicia Lemke (ALICIA) - a fearless and inspiring young talent.  Written as a tribute to those lost in the September 11th attacks, and as a lullaby to all those who had to sleep through that terrible night, the song was inspired by the My 9-11 Project: One Man's Journey Through the Unexpected Events of September 11th, 2001.  

ALICIA explains: "I wrote "Maiden Lane" after reading a passage from the story where the author walks civilians down Maiden Lane (a street in the Financial District) in order to put them to bed by candle light in his own apartment. As they walked down Maiden Lane, he was struck by the silence and heaviness in the air. My song looks to alleviate the heaviness of that day and bring hope to our future.

A native of Madison, Wisconsin, ALICIA’s wanderlust eventually landed her in New York City. Her extraordinary passion propelled her into the heart of the city's music scene where she has sparked a growing fan base.  In addition to her newly released singles “Luminous,” "Higher" and “Whistleblower,” ALICIA’s talent as a singer/songwriter was also recently showcased on the “Where The Hell is Matt 2012” viral video now reaching over 5 million views.
ALICIA played the side stage at the Florence & The Machine show Saturday, September 15, at Jones Beach at 7pm.

Maus Haus

San Francisco's Maus Haus is a concoction of Kraftwerk, the Beach Boys, and Sonic Youth steeped in a solution of glitchy noise,  dirty drums,  and buzzy synthesizers. Through this heady mix,  the band is still eminently approachable,  with catchy vocals, and moving rhythms.  The resulting sound is patently unique, yet strangely familiar.

Since the release of 2009’s sprawling Lark Marvels,  the band has progressed from a stage-filling 7-person ensemble to a powerful 4-piece with each member attending to multiple instruments, recalling the frenetic live performances of Battles.  The upcoming seven-track Light Noise EP is slated for digital release October 2, and physical release October 23 by new imprint Lavish Habits.

Maus Haus has supported Crystal Castles, Dengue Fever, Autolux, Black Moth Super Rainbow, !!!, Javelin, School of Seven Bells, on both coasts and between. The band was awarded "Best New Synth Rockers" from SF Weekly, and "Band of the Year" from the Deli Magazine.  In 2010, the band shared San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival main stage with artists such as LCD Soundsystem, Die Antwoord, and Holy Fuck.

"Light Noise" Tracklist

1. You Made My Radar
2. Where
3. Hey Jean
4. Mouth
5. No More Girls
6. Nervous Friends
7. Night Shift

Praise For Maus Haus
"You wouldn't be off base to consider San Francisco's Maus Haus one of the brightest hopes in the city's avant/indie realm. Picture Brian Wilson meeting Marcel Duchamp and departing together, arm in arm, to plan pocket symphonies…I'm betting these fellows won't remain a mousy secret for long." -- Bay Area Guardian

The Story Of Bob Dylan & The Band  

Features exclusive new interviews with Garth Hudson, Ronnie Hawkins, 
band producer John Simon & tour drummer Mickey Jones

In 1966 Bob Dylan began his first electric world tour. It was a landmark moment, both for Dylan and for the history of rock music, and it bitterly divided his audience.

Backing Dylan on stage was an obscure group of Canadian musicians collectively known as The Hawks. In the months following the tour they would join Dylan during a lengthy convalescence in New York's Catskill Mountains; when both parties re-emerged, Dylan had undergone an artistic transformation that sent ripples across American music and The Hawks had become simply 'The Band', one of the most important recording groups of their generation.

This is the story of the relationship between Dylan and The Band, the legendary amateur recordings that they made together in Woodstock, their re-invention of American music and their continued albeit sporadic relationship during the 1970s.

Featuring new interviews with Garth Hudson;  Band producer John Simon; The Hawks' 66 tour drummer, Mickey Jones; the man who assembled and tutored the Hawks and from whom they took their name, Ronnie Hawkins; Dylan guitarist, Charlie McCoy; Band biographer Barney Hoskyns; Basement Tapes Archivist, Sid Griffin, Isis magazine's Derek Barker and Rolling Stone's Anthony De Curtis.

Also features rare footage, archive interviews, seldom seen photographs and the music that changed the world, all at once making for the finest program on this element of Bob Dylan and The Band's respective and communal careers yet to emerge.

The Story Behind Coldplay's Album

Having entered the charts at Number One in 34 countries and sold more than six million copies, the story behind Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto album is now set to be revealed, with the release of the first of a six-part comic series at San Diego Comic-Con International.

The story of Mylo Xyloto was conceived and written by Coldplay alongside Academy Award-nominated writer and director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie), and the comics will be published by Matt Groening's celebrated Bongo Comics Group.

Said Coldplay on "Three years ago we had an idea with our friend Mark Osborne about a character called Mylo Xyloto - "xylo" as in xylophone, "to" as in toe. Gradually Mylo's story and universe came together and this ended up providing the backdrop for the album and tour. Now we're proud to announce that early next year the story is going to come out as a six-part comic. We hope you like it. It was fun making it."

Said Mark Osborne: "The comic is the latest expression of a music-driven feature animated film that the band and I started developing several years ago. It 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. There will hopefully be many, many connections for people who have heard the album. I am beyond thrilled with the way it's turned out."

The first issue of Mylo Xyloto will be available, with an exclusive variant cover, at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International (12-15 July) at the San Diego Convention Center. On Friday, 13 July, the production team behind the comic will appear at a panel to discuss the series and afterwards will be available for autographs in the official signing area. A limited supply of the exclusive edition of issue one will also be made available via the Shop.

The six-part comic will then be released monthly from February 2013. The series will be available to pre-order via the Shop soon.
