Radiohead Update

With all the information that flies around in this day and age with the Internet, magazines, TV, and every other kind of media out there, it's hard to keep up with all your favorite bands—and by favorite bands, we mean Radiohead. To combat this inundation of info, Muzjiks has collected all the latest goings-on with the Oxfordshire quintet and put it one place to make your lives easier:

  • Thom Yorke's other band, at one point called Thom Yorke????, has been officially named "Atoms For Peace," and the band will embark on a brief tour next month that will culminate with a Coachella appearance. Other than Coachella, Flying Lotus will be opening for all gigs. The dates are listed below, and you can find ticket information here.
Mon 5 | Roseland Ballroom | New York, NY
Tue 6 | Roseland Ballroom | New York, NY
Thu 8 | Citi Wang Theatre | Boston, MA
Sat 10 | Aragon Ballroom | Chicago, IL
Sun 11 | Aragon Ballroom | Chicago, IL
Wed 14 | Fox Theater | Oakland, CA
Thu 15 | Fox Theater | Oakland, CA
Sat 17 | Santa Barbara Bowl | Santa Barbara, CA
Sun 18 | Coachella Festival | Indio, CA
  • On February 25, Thom Yorke played a solo gig at the Green Party benefit at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge. In addition to rarities like "I Froze Up" and "True Love Waits," Thom graced concertgoers with three brand new songs. Titled "Give Up the Ghost," "The Daily Mail," and "Mouse Dog Bird," it remains to be seen whether these songs are Radiohead, Thom solo, or Atoms for Peace material. Also played at the gig was "Lotus Flower," a relatively new offering that was debuted last year by Thom but has since been confirmed as a Radiohead song. You can find videos of the three brand new songs below and even more videos of the concert here:

  • Jonny Greenwood will return to film scoring as he writes music for Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood. Previously, Jonny has composed for There Will Be Blood and Bodysong, both of which were stellar scores.
  • Despite some short-lived hysteria and excitement, a TinyMixtapes article that claimed to have discovered the tracklist and album name for LP8 was found to be a hoax.
Until next time, keep your vinyl copies of OK Computer close, and say a few prayers. Who knows, maybe we'll wake up to a new Radiohead album one morning. After the revolutionary In Rainbows distribution, nothing is too far-fetched for Thom and the gang.

Hopefully this post was helpful to you. Feel free to discuss and comment. Take care, friend.
