Many hearts were broken back in October when Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood negated comments that the band would tour in 2016, after an interview with an “over-enthusiastic translator.” Ladies and gentlemen, mend those broken hearts together because Radiohead have officially confirmed a tour in 2016.
Early this morning (January 21st) the band announced via Facebook a number of festival headlining spots: OpenAir St. Gallen in Switzerland, NOS Alive Fest in Portugal and Primavera Sound Festival in Spain. Though there’s no mention of any North American dates currently.
The band has been confirmed to be in the midst of making their ninth studio album through photos that had surfaced. Recently, fans have also started to speculate that a Radiohead album is coming sooner than we think, after the band founded a new company called “Dawn Chorus.” As Consequence of Sound reports, Radiohead has a pattern of creating companies shortly before releasing new albums in the past.
They also released an unused title track from 2015’s Bond movie, “Spectre,” over the holidays. Check it out below:
