RADIOHEAD are to create an Internet network that allows fans to ask questions about forthcoming album ‘AMNESIAC’.

The instant message service, accessible via the band’s US website www.hollywoodandvine.com, will allow fans to ask questions about tour dates, band members and ‘Amnesiac’, due for release in the UK on June 4.

Robin Bechtel, Head of New Media for Capitol Records said: “[This is] a fun, new and compelling way to deliver exclusive Radiohead music and information to their fans. By doing it through instant messaging, which is already an incredibly popular way to communicate, fans can get information about their favourite band as easily as chatting with friends.”
