“We have a rule that one f— up is charming, but any more than that is unprofessional,” Chris told the mag about live performances.
The name of the band’s fifth studio album was recently unveiled. Mylo Xyloto will be released in the United States on Oct. 25!
Chris also opened up about the pressures of creating a new record.
“The honest answer is, I want anyone who spends money on us to be really pleased with their purchase. If you want to speak purely? How I really feel is, we don’t make it for us. We don’t make it to sell millions. We don’t make it to answer critics,” he shared.
“We make it so that if you’re in a store and you buy our record, or a ticket – like a good sandwich – you go, ‘That’s good!’ That’s all it is. And I look to my heroes on both record and live and I think that the people I like the most are the people that are really working for their audience,” he added
