Radiohead to Tour Next Year, New Atoms for Peace Album, Coachella 2012 Rumor
The two go back to back for the whole show, and touch on everything from Berliners Modeselektor and Anstam’s dark beats, through to Footwork from DJ Slugo and some classic Bristol swag from Massive Attack. But not before dipping into classic US Jazz from Duke Ellington and Bossa Nova from Segio Garcia.
Radiohead fans and music lovers alike, this show is not to be missed!
The big reveal came during the interview segments where Yorke mentions that Radiohead will indeed be touring next year “on and off” and that he’s working on an Atoms for Peace album following the band’s epic 2010 tour (all via Green Plastic Radiohead). I saw the band at the Fox Theater in Oakland when they rolled through ahead of their Coachella appearance, and it was an absolute triumph of amazing music and I’m hella down with anything these guys are going to put together for a proper studio project.
And regarding the tour, it makes sense now especially given that the Coachella rumor mill is already saying that Radiohead and No Doubt are confirmed for the two-weekend festival in 2012. There’s really no reason to think it would not come true given the band’s affinity for the festivals last time they toured in support of In Rainbows. Good news for us in the Bay Area; Coachella week is always epic with the amount of music we get flowing in and out of the area. We’ll definitely be following this news closely.
