Radiohead Announce 2016 World Tour

Thom Yorke and his Radiohead bandmates make news for just stepping into a studio, but today there’s real reason for ‘Head heads to celebrate: the band has announced that, for the first time since 2012, it will be embarking on a world tour. 

News of this extended world tour comes shortly after a few of the band’s festival shows were announced, so it’s not quite as significant as it could have been. For shame, Radiohead. Anyway, since the news was announced, the band has dropped some new artwork on Twitter, which proves nothing but suggests that, by the time they kick this tour off in May, they might just have some new tunes to play for us.

The snazzy new artwork:
