Despite the fact that Thom Yorke’s solo album, The Eraser, came out all the way back in 2006, the enigmatic Radiohead front man has finally deemed it time to do some full band shows in support. Last year, Yorke assembled an ad-hoc band that consisted of RHCP’s bassist Flea, producer Nigel Godrich, Beck drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco for a string of shows in Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theater.
Yorke will now bring these very same folks together again, dubbing the collective Atoms For Peace after a track on the album, for a nine-date run that kicks off with a two-night stand at New York’s Roseland Ballroom on April 5 and culminates with a high profile appearance at Coachella on April 18.Tickets go on sale to Radiohead’s Waste club members starting March 2nd, with the public on-sale March 5th.
