Thom Yorke to bring supergroup to Coachella Festival?

Flea, Nigel Godrich and co are rumoured to be playing with him this April

Thom Yorke to bring supergroup to Coachella Festival?
Thom Yorke could be set to play this year's Coachella Festival with his unnamed supergroup.

The singer is already confirmed to play the Californian event in April with the likes of Gorillaz, Jay-Z and Muse, but with Yorke billed by organisers as 'Thom Yorke????', it is now rumoured that he could be playing with his all-star backing band at the event.

He played last year's Latitude Festival in the UK solo.

Now, EW.com are reporting that Yorke's representatives have said he intends to perform with the backing band he assembled in Los Angeles last year.

The group, which features Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, REM collaborator Joey Waronker, Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco, and long-term producer Nigel Godrich, played three shows in October.

Meanwhile, Yorke has hinted that his unnamed band are going to "do something hopefully in April", hinting at the possibility of a new solo recording.

Co-hosting the Gilles Peterson show on Radio 1 earlier today (January 20), the Radiohead man explained that while the band would be used for "just some more gigs" he did not rule out the possibility that it could "lead somewhere [else] as well".
