Atoms For Peace Press Photo 2010

Turns out the Thom Yorke???? moniker was too self-aggrandizing even for Thom Yorke, bless him. Each of those question marks — Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, Flea, and Nigel Godrich — are now accounted for in the name Atoms For Peace, the official moniker for the newly christened Radiohead side-project Thom unveiled in Los Angeles, is taking to Coachella, and, it turns out, will whip around the U.S.  (with Flying Lotus!) in the weeks leading up to that desert fest. You’ll remember “Atoms For Peace” as a track title on The Eraser; according to Thom’s deadairspace posting, they went with it because “it seemed bleedin’ obvious.” Dwight D. Eisenhower knows what he’s talking about.

The shows go on sale March 2nd and 3rd, depending on your city. Atoms For Peace’s April tour dates:

  1. Damn too far to catch one and even if I could, the ticket prices are damn expensive.

  2. I hope they play some new songs or something. Sigh.

  3. Really hope we’ll hear some new material here soon, i’m curious to see what all of them can come up with collectively. I like the name though, alot better then the “????”

  4. Oh man oh man I can’t wait for Coachella. I’ve never been able to afford tickets for Thom Yorke but I just recently sold my liver. I’m sure it is worth it.

  5. I really have to hand it to Thom. Not many people can simultaneously tout the green party and travel from country to country willy nilly on his whim.

    Someone call me when the new Radiohead album is finished.

  6. cool press photo :\

    …flea….

  7. chicagoooo. aragon’s sound sucks, but i’m too much of a radiowhore to pass this up.
    let’s hope for some new material.

  8. i thought Thom Yorke???? was a good name. i dont think this works as well. for Thom Yorke.

  9. Thom Yorke ???? is a really fuckin horrible name, glad they changed it.
