Q.  Hey, I've grown rather fond of Apparatjik which I know Guy is apart of. Do you know if they will be releasing a new album anytime soon?

P.s will Chris ever let Guy solo sing an/a part of a song?


Guy is busy with Coldplay right now - as far as I know there are no current release plans for Apparatjik.
It took years for Guy to feel confident with singing backing vocals - singing lead isn't something he necessarily wants to do - it's not a case of Chris "letting" him.

Q.  Chris, as Guy have another band I want to know? Do you, Will or Johnny have other bands too or is only Guy?
Sorry for been so curios but thank you for listening to me. Love you all.

Guy is also a member of Apparatjik but Chris, Jonny & Will aren't in other bands even though they have featured or collaborated with other artists.
I don't know who you think I am, but I'm not Phil - who isn't in any other band - neither am I. I'm not in any.

Q.  Hey Oracle!
I've always wondered, how does Guy divide his time between Apparatjik and Coldplay? He works more on Coldplay, doesn't he? And do Jonny, Will and Chris feel bad about him being also in another band? Thanks for answering

The thing with Apparatjik is that all the members have also been busy with primary jobs; Mags was still in A-ha until quite recently, Jonas from Mew has band commitments and Martin continues with his "day job".
They make it work around their priorities. Guy's priority is Coldplay but when the band aren't in the studio or touring, he's free to work elsewhere as he has done - not just with Apparatjik.
It's not just Guy though. Chris, Jonny & Will have all collaborated, performed, guested (or whatever) with other artists.

Q.  Hi

Is it really the voice of Guy?
Thank you.

Yes, that is Guy taking lead vocal on Apparatjik's Sequential.

Q.  I'm still a little confused, is Apparatjik pronounced a-para-teak or apa-rat-chik? Everyone's saying it's the latter.
Thank you :)

Yes it seems I was confused too as I made a boo boo. It is in fact the latter as you say. I stand corrected... with a red face.

Q.  I love the sound of Guy's side project, Apparatjik, but how do you pronounce the band name correctly?
