Thom Yorke and co to kick off US tour with TV appearance
Atoms For Peace are set to appear on the Daily Show With Jon Stewart this Thursday (September 26).
The group, which includes Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chilli Peppers bassist Flea, will tour the US in support of their ‘AMOK’ album this month and have booked an appearance on the political comedy show to launch the jaunt.
Earlier this month, Yorke and Godrich put out a new mix titled ‘You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry Mush’ – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen. The 11-minute mix, which is described by SoundCloud as a “collage of unreleased beats and such like.. featuring Mauro from Atoms for Peace and a mashed beat by Jonathan Greenwood esq”, was put together to soundtrack fashion line Rag & Bone’s latest runway show for New York Fashion Week. Yorke has soundtracked the brand’s shows twice before.
Atoms For Peace recently broadcast two shows from their three-night run at the London Roundhouse via Soundhalo. The service, which was premiered by Alt-J in May of this year, allows users to download high quality MP4 videos and audio tracks to their phones as the show they are attending is taking place.
The band recently revealed that they were pulling their music from Spotify after claiming that the streaming service was “bad for new music”. In addition to removing their debut album ‘Amok’, Godrich also removed his band Ultraista’s debut album from Spotify, while Thom Yorke’s solo album ‘The Eraser’ has also been taken down.
