The Austin City Limits Festival makes its highly anticipated return to Austin's scenic Zilker Park this fall, and for the first time ever, the festivities will span two weekends: Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13. This year’s stellar lineup features Atoms for Peace, the Cure, Wilco and the National, plus dozens more must-see acts.
Atoms for Peace
Atoms for Peace have mapped out a fall North American tour in support of their long-awaited debut album, 'AMOK,' which dropped last month. The trek kicks off Sept. 24 in Philadelphia and so far consists of a mere six concerts spread out over nearly a month, so we wouldn't be surprised if more dates surface. It's slated to wind down Oct. 17 in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Atoms for Peace have lined up more dates for a European summer tour that's slated to kick off July 6 in Paris and is now scheduled through a three-night (July 24-26) stand in London. The supergroup, which features Radiohead's Thom Yorke, producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and percussionists Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco, issued its debut album, 'AMOK,' late last month.
Atoms for Peace, the supergroup featuring Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and producer Nigel Godrich, have released a new video for the tune ‘Ingenue.’ The clip shows off Yorke’s dancing skills as he bends into various impressive positions alongside a similarly dressed partner.
It’s become increasingly difficult to pinpoint when exactly Thom Yorke let the machines take over. Maybe around the time of ‘Kid A’? Ever since Radiohead’s 2000 opus, he’s fused his veins, tendons and nerves with the coils, wires and cables that drive the laptops and computers used so expressively in his music over the past dozen years. Radiohead’s last couple of albums are unquestionably more machine than man, but it’s on Yorke’s 2006 solo record ‘The Eraser’ where they completely consume his soul.
What the freak are Atoms for Peace? As fans eagerly await the Feb. 26 release of the band's debut album, 'Amok,' footage of the Thom Yorke-fronted supergroup performing 'Judge Jury and Executioner' at Japan's Fuji Rock festival has surfaced online. The live clip was recently discovered via an Easter egg hunt promotion held on group's official website.
