When we asked our crew for what projects they were most excited about seeing in 2013, more than a few responded with “the new Atoms for Peace.” And while Rolling Stone has been all over the official word of a new album dropping early next year, the band just now gave the official release details away.
In “a note from Thom Yorke” that hit inboxes this morning, here’s what the front man has to say:
So finally I can tell you the Atoms for Peace record is coming out on the 25th February, it’s called Amok.
The front will look like theez..
The tracks are
Before Your Very Eyes
Stuck Together Pieces
Judge Jury and Executioner
We put something new on the website for you to stare at etc for a while here… www.atomsforpeace.info
It’s a while to wait i know so i’m sure some other things will occur before then.

We formed to learn to play The Eraser record, if you don’t know that, and discovered a really good energy doing that… and it fell into this record.
I’m still reeling from being on tour for much of the year but we are planning to get together and play etc next year ! We’re figuring all that out right now.
Atoms is a ongoing and open ended project, where it leads i know not for certain… which is what is nice about it.”
I think we can all be excited about the “It’s a while to wait i know so i’m sure some other things will occur before then.” line. You never really know that that means to Thom and how he books up his schedule, so be on the lookout for more on this as we get it.
