The History of Capitol Records

Coldplay Release "X&Y"

On June 6th, 2005, Coldplay released their 3rd album, “X&Y“. When their previous offerings had become huge hits, with “A Rush of Blood To The Head” a significant step forward from the debut, “Parachutes”, and seen Coldplay become one of the major UK acts and flag bearers, expectations were high.
However it was obvious from early on that Coldplay were in no hurry to release another record as they tortured themselves in an attempt to better “A Rush of Blood To The Head”.

"Piece of Mind" released by Iron Maiden

Piece of Mind is the fourth studio album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released on May 16th 1983. It was the first album to feature what is now widely considered the definitive Iron Maiden line-up of Steve Harris, Bruce Dickinson, Adrian Smith, Dave Murray and new drummer Nicko McBrain.
