Yorke will play London with Radiohead and Atoms for Peace superproducer Nigel Godrich on February 22
Thom Yorke has announced a special series of live shows with Radiohead and Atoms For Peace superproducer Nigel Godrich.
Announcing the gigs on Twitter earlier today (February 4), Yorke wrote: “Me & Nigel out & about with two turntables & a microphone – London 22 Feb, Berlin 8 March, NY 14 March. Special guests & location to follow…”
Atoms For Peace – Thom Yorke’s side project with Godrich, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers and percussionist Mauro Refosco – release their debut album ‘Amok’ on February 25 via XL. Listen to the band’s track ‘Judge, Jury and Executioner’, which was first played live in 2009 in Los Angeles, below.
In a recent interview, Yorke and Godrich confirmed that they would be playing shows in the UK and Europe, but that they didn’t know when. “It’s still being figured out,” said Nigel. “It’s on the table.”
When asked if they’d be playing this summer’s Glastonbury Festival, Yorke said that they wouldn’t. “We won’t have got our shit together by then,” he explained.
