Excitement is not the first emotion associated with Radiohead fans—though they’d be forgiven for letting it get the better of them with today’s news.
The British indie band has announced a world tour that includes stops in New York and Los Angeles—prompting rumors a new album might be about to drop.
Fans are speculating that the image that appeared alongside the tour announcement might be the cover art of a new album, the follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs.

No official word on that, however. Announcing the tour on their website, the band simply says, “these are all the headline shows” they’ll play in 2016, leaving the way open for possible appearances at U.S. music festivals like the one already announced for Quebec’s Oshega fest in July.
The band’s statement promised they would “add a few more.”
For now though, the confirmed U.S. dates are July 26 and 27 at New York’s Madison Square Garden and August 4 & 8 at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, as well as dates in Montreal, Mexico City, London, Paris and Amsterdam.
As for an album, brace yourself for surprises.Read More
