Does Coldplay's New Artwork Rip Off Bring Me The Horizon?

In case the ongoing Skrillex vs. Deadmau5 twitter feud doesn't fulfill your daily dose of musician beef, we've got a weird one. It looks like some people are accusing Coldplay's latest artwork of ripping off....Bring Me The Horizon

Not even modern-day, No. 2 on the Billboard 200, major label-era Bring Me The Horizon. We're talking about the cover art from their third album, Sempiternal, from 2013.

Apparently Coldplay's latest artwork has been popping up in and around London and looks very similar to the post-hardcore band's cover. Check it out above.

It caught the attention of BMTH frontman Oli Sykes, who sent out the above tweet. So, what do you think? Coincidence? Is Chris Martin a closeted metalcore fan? The world may never know.

In the meantime, read our essay on how Bring Me The Horizon are slowly changing the rock music world as we know it.
