Earlier this week, Radiohead made a bunch of New York-area people happy by announcing that they’d play two shows at Roseland Ballroom next week, and they’ve also got guest spots coming up on Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report. And now Thom Yorke is letting the world know that the band’s sporadic live-show schedule will soon get busier. According to Yorke, Radiohead will tour next year. So you might want to just start refreshing the Ticketmaster website right now, just to be safe.
Yorke dropped that bomb when he was on his homeboy Gilles Peterson’s BBC radio show last night, as Pitchfork points out. On the same show, Yorke also claimed that his touring band Atoms For Peace, which also features Flea and Nigel Godrich, is almost done recording an album. Listen to the show here.
