Thom Yorke Confirms 2012 Radiohead Tour, New Atoms For Peace Album

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke seems to really enjoy being on the radio these days. Fresh off of dropping by Mary Ann Hobb's XFM show to drop a new mix and do "The Twist," he popped back on the air last night to hang out with Gilles Peterson on his BBC Radio 1 show, spin records, aaaaand confirm a 2012 Radiohead tour and a new Atoms For Peace album.

Yup. Like bandmate Ed O'Brien before him, Thom noted that the band will be setting up tour dates throughout what might be the last year of civilization, if you believe the Mayans. AND, his Atoms For Peace side project (which we last saw in 2010 rocking through Thom's solo release The Eraser with, uh,  Flea) is putting the finishing touches on a new album. As weird as it sounds, I caught their show on that tour and it was very legitimately cool, so very curious about what this new Atoms For Peace album will sound like.

Listen to the whole radio show over here, and keep on spazzing about that upcoming Radiohead NYC Takeover.
