Radiohead Finally Reveal Plans To Tour Behind ‘King of Limbs’

Posted by MTV News On October - 18 - 2011

Radiohead

By Zachary Swickey

Many Radiohead fans have been scratching their heads wondering when the experimental group plans on hitting the road for their first proper tour following the release of their last album, King of Limbs, which came out way back in February. Well, rest easy folks, because the group has finally shed some light on their future touring plans.

Talking to Britain’s BBC 6Music, Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien revealed the band will be on the road for the majority of 2012. “We’re finalizing dates now, we’ll be on the road from the end of February to November and we’ll be playing in both the UK and US, the usual ports of call,” he said.

The usual ports of call indeed, as Radiohead’s scant appearances since KOL’s release have been a pair of much-hyped club shows in New York City and a semi-surprise gig at this year’s Glastonbury Music Festival. O’Brien then elaborated on the set list concert-goers can expect, saying, “Last time we went out it was In Rainbows and a greatest hits. It’s not going to be like that this time. It’s going to be predominantly from this record and the last one and then we’ll see which songs fit around that.”

O’Brien also mentioned that the their entire European tour will be an indoor affair, as they felt the new material demanded such a setting following their festival experience this summer. “Outdoor gigs can be great, but the sound can get diluted,” he said. “You’re at the mercy of the elements and I think the record demands a space where the music is loud, strong, and detailed.

No word on dates for the trek just yet, but here’s to hoping you’ve already seen “Idioteque” live.

Radiohead Perform on ‘Colbert,’ Are Suddenly Everywhere You Look

Posted by MTV News On September - 27 - 2011

Radiohead

By Steven Roberts

Once upon time, a Radiohead television appearance would’ve been big news here at MTV News. No, I won’t be beating that old drum in this blog post because that was totally like 15 years ago and the kids are f**king with “Twilight,” Demi Lavato and Skrillex these days. Thankfully, I’m too old for that (the tender age of 26) and I’m still psyched every time I see Thom Yorke and the gang on TV and/or the Interwebs.

Last night, the band stopped by “The Colbert Report’s” Dr. Pepper Flavor Zone to talk and laugh – albeit in that aloof yet awkward Radiohead kind of way – about everything from their humble beginnings as school mates to the pros and cons of releasing their music independently. The group revealed that they had no plans to release a Christmas album, much to Steve Colbert’s chagrin – Colbert readily shares that he won a Grammy for his Christmas album, “A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All” – and were steadfast about their distaste of big corporations. Afterward, the group performed an unreleased track titled “The Daily Mail.”

Radiohead also performed a number of tracks from their newest release, “King of Limbs,” as well as my personal favorite Radiohead song, “The National Anthem” from 2000’s “Kid A.” Unfortunately these performances didn’t air, but they are all available on Colbert’s website along with an interview between Colbert, Yorke and Ed O’Brien about global warming.

And if their appearance on “Colbert” wasn’t enough for your Radiohead fix, the band performed on “Saturday Night Live” last weekend (see it here) and will be performing Wednesday and Thursday evening at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. Tickets are sold-out, but don’t let that stop you.

Inside Radiohead’s Newspaper ‘The Universal Sigh’

Posted by James Montgomery On March - 29 - 2011

At exactly 12:57 p.m. Tuesday (March 29), I ventured outside of MTV headquarters here in Times Square expecting to see Thom Yorke standing on an overturned apple box, wearing a newsboy cap, hawking copies of “The Universal Sigh,” the bizarre newspaper thingy Radiohead printed to promote the physical release of their The King Of Limbs album (at least, I think that’s what it’s for). Instead, I was greeted by a line of wild-eyed Radiohead fans, each frantically checking their mobile devices, then scanning the horizon for any sign of the band — after all, this was the exact spot where Yorke and Co. announced they’d be handing out copies of the paper — then returning their forlorn gazes to their mobile devices. Some of them even perched MacBooks on their chests, which seemed a little ridiculous.

Nonplussed, I decided to go get a sandwich. It was lunchtime after all.

When I returned, sandwich in hand, the line had vanished. “Had all the papers been handed out?” I wondered. Turns out they were just being distributed one block up. So I walked up there, waited in line for roughly one minute and was handed a copy of the paper by a girl wearing a satchel over her shoulder. My photo was taken and that was it. No tussles, no shouting mobs, no Thom Yorke dressed like a street urchin. Just a bunch of Radiohead fans waiting patiently in a line outside an Aeropostale store. “Universal Sigh” indeed.

Now back up at my desk, I’m paging through it (you can do the same here), feeling the dusty residue of newspaper ink coat my fingers. It is an oddly nostalgic thing, that feeling, and perhaps that was the reason Radiohead decided to print “The Universal Sigh” in the first place: It’s a deliberately dusty ode to our (very recent) past, an overly wordy, artfully technophobic bomb lobbed at life in the 21st century. You cannot download it or upload it or even stream it. You have to read it.

Then again, if that’s not why they decided to do this, well, then I’m at a loss. Filled with Yorke’s overly-caffeinated e.e. cummings wordplay (“The book of/ the book of forgiveness/ the book of request/ the book of the dream/ that was ok”), actual lyrics from the Limbs album, short stories, a whole lot of post-apocalyptic scribblings and dense, dank artwork from Stanley Donwood, there seems to be no real point to “The Universal Sigh,” which, come to think of it, might actually be the point indeed. Because if you are a fan of Radiohead, this is exactly the reason you love the band in the first place.

There’s also one of those QR Codes on the back of the thing, which may unlock some secret content or something (apparently it allows you to download artwork, but I don’t know how to work it, because I am old). But really, “The Universal Sigh” seems to have been drawn from the same place the band went to for their The King Of Limbs album: Namely, an insular, do-it-yourself-for-the-sake-of-doing-it world that only Radiohead (and their fans) seem to inhabit. As one of the latter, I welcome the latest edition to the family, even if I don’t really understand it in the slightest.

And now it’s on to my sandwich, ink-stained hands and all.

With the voting now active on the match-up below, the second round games are now completely open. The winners of these pairings will all advance to the Sweet 16, where the voting windows get shorter and the competition even more intense.

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Sunday, March 27 at midnight. As always, you can follow all the voting here.

(2) Radiohead vs. (7) Owl City
Owl City are very much the Butler of this tournament, scoring unlikely victories against bigger, faster and more famous squads. They had an improbably hot run in last year’s Musical March Madness, and this time around they dispatched of indie darlings the Decemberists in relatively short order in the first round. But they’ll have to take on a very game Radiohead team who are coming off a big win against TV on the Radio. Which group will keep marching toward immortality and which will have to pack it in until next year? Your votes will tell the tale!

Watch the breakdown of the first round and a preview of round two!
