Radiohead register another company in run-up to new album release

It's the second company the band have established in recent months

Radiohead appear to have launched a new limited company amid speculation that they will release their album shortly.

As previously reported, the band established a company called Dawn Chorus LLP in October 2015, a holding company for their recently-announced tour. Now, as Consequence Of Sound reports, a new company has been registered called Dawnnchoruss Ltd.

It has also been noted that the group set up similar companies ahead of their last two albums. In July 2007, they founded Xurbia Xendless Ltd in advance of ‘In Rainbows’ (released in October that year) while in December 2010 they formed Ticker Tape Ltd ahead of ‘The King of Limbs’ release of February 2011.

Radiohead are expected to release a new album shortly, having recently announced a UK tour alongside a series of summer festival dates.

The band’s long-time visual collaborator Stanley Donwood has confirmed that he has heard the band’s new album, although it is not yet finished, describing the LP as “a work of art”.

After tickets for the band’s upcoming tour went on sale last week, frontman Thom Yorke described himself as “fucked off” as thousands of fans struggled to get hold of tickets. Demand for the tickets led to fans finding themselves queuing with thousands of others in search of tickets after they went on sale.

Radiohead will play the following headline dates:

Amsterdam, Heineken Music Hall (May 20-21)
Paris, Le Zenith (May 23-24)
London, Roundhouse (May 26-28)
New York, Madison Square Garden (July 26-27)
Los Angeles, Shrine Auditorium (August 4, 8)
Mexico City, Palacio De Los Deportes (October 3-4)
