Singer says band will be on the road throughout next year

Thom Yorke has confirmed that Radiohead will be touring in 2012.

The band, who announced two shows in New York yesterday (September 20), have so far only played one live show, which consisted of a secret show at Glastonbury, in support of their new album ‘The King Of Limbs’.

But speaking to BBC Radio 1‘s Giles Peterson, Yorke confirmed that the band would be touring, saying: “The idea is to go out and play next year on and off during the year.”


The singer also indicated that Portishead‘s Clive Deamer, who played with the band during their Glastonbury set, would be part of the touring band.

Yorke also spoke about his plans to release a new album as part of Atoms For Peace, his project with producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, revealing that he is “finishing the album” at the moment.

Yorke recently performed a one-off show in Cornwall as part of the European Fish Fry festival.
