Radiohead, purveyors of something or another, have confirmed the first several dates of a US tour in support of, yes, The King of Limbs (TMT Review). But the group is planning to record new material in December and January, so who knows? Maybe we’ll be hearing some new songs come February and March 2012, when the band hits the old forums-arenas-bank-centers circuit. And maybe they’ll be all hypnagogic or something.
Opening the shows will be TBD labelmates Other Lives, who are most famous for being the openers of Radiohead’s upcoming US tour. W.A.S.T.E. will provide some tickets on Wednesday, with general tickets going on sale this Saturday.

And hey, don’t forget to bid on Ed O’Brien’s Kid A guitar. The eBay listing says the condition is “very good,” but the picture shows the guitar obviously tarnished by these scribbled signatures on the pick guard. And surely the cheesy riff in “Optimistic” should lower the price, too. But eh, it’s for the Billie Butterfly Fund, so that’s cool. You can read more about the Billie Butterfly Fund here.
