On September 21, Radiohead's Thom Yorke
confirmed on BBC Radio 1 that the band will tour in 2012.
On Tuesday Radiohead announced two shows in New York. The band has so far only played one live show, a secret show at the UK's Glastonbury Festival, in support of its eighth studio album, The King Of Limbs.
In an interview with BBC Radio's Gilles Peterson, Yorke noted that Portishead's Clive Deamer, who joined the band at Glastonbury, would be part of the touring band.
Yorke also added that he is finishing work on a new album as part of Atoms for Peace, his side project with producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Beck drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco.
The King of Limbs reached the top ten in album charts in 21 countries, including number three in the US and seventh in the UK. The band's 2007 In Rainbows reached number one on album charts in five countries, including the UK, the US, and France.
