Radiohead To Tour UK Next Autumn
And Guitarist Ed O'Brien has told Xfm they've got a few more new tracks that fans should get to hear on the road...
The band have just unveiled two new songs - The Daily Mail and Staircase - that are being released as a double A-side on December 19.
The opportunity to see them play live since the release of new album King of Limbs earlier this year have been slim and the release of a series of live dates all outside of the UK must have been a major disappointment to masses of Radiohead fans.
But speaking to Xfm's Mary Anne Hobbs guitarist Ed O'Brien confirmed they will be performing on our shores in 2012.
"We are definitely playing the UK next year. It's just a matter of staggering how they sell the tickets, it's nonsense really. It will be the autumn of next year," he explained.
The band are already rehearsing for the world tour Ed told Mary Anne, "we're trying to keep it creative. We've got new songs, we've been rehearsing about four or five new songs this week so we're going to try and take those on the road. It feels really good."
Ed has also promised fans the band would be performing at indoor venues on the European leg of their tour, adding that they want a good sound whilst they perform King of Limbs, so outdoor festivals wont be the ideal venue for it.
