MASSIVE Attack have teamed up with climate scientists to map their carbon footprint while on tour.

The band, best known for the album Blue Lines, have asked the University of Manchester’s Tyndall Centre to ‘map thoroughly the carbon footprint of band tour cycles, and to present options that can be implemented quickly to begin a meaningful reduction of impact’.

Research fellow Dr Chris Jones said: ‘We need partnerships like this one to look at reducing carbon emissions across the board.’

Last week, Chris Martin said Coldplay will not launch a world tour for their latest album over environmental concerns. Massive Attack’s Robert ‘3D’ Del Naja wrote in the Guardian that they discussed ending touring but ‘an entire international roster of acts would need to stop touring to achieve the required impact’.
