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.
Atoms for Peace have yet to announce any gigs in support of their debut album, 'Amok,' which drops later this month (Feb. 26, to be specific), but principal members Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich are embarking on a brief trek that will feature the dynamic duo spinning records in three major cities. Yorke announced their plans via a Twitter post.
Upscale menswear isn't the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the name Thom Yorke, but the Radiohead frontman has been involved in the fashion world for a while. In 2011, he created a soundtrack for the premiere of fall line from designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, aka Rag & Bone.
In celebration of Dazed & Confused magazine's February cover story on him and his Atoms for Peace project, Thom Yorke has created a 25-minute mixtape produced by Nigel Godrich and featuring unreleased solo material and remixes of Radiohead and Atoms for Peace tunes, plus additional remixes of some of his favorite musicians, like Liars and Anstam.

The 2013 music festival rumor mill continues to heat up, with Radiohead singer Thom Yorke revealing potential plans to appear at this summer's edition of the U.K.'s popular Glastonbury festival. Some news outlets have interpreted Yorke's comments -- which came when he and Nigel Godrich, one of his bandmates in the supergroup Atoms for Peace, sat for a talk with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe -- as evidence that Radiohead may take the stage at this year's gathering, set for June 27-30.
