Radiohead’s Philip Selway Announces 2015 Solo Tour Dates + Shares Radiohead News
Though Radiohead remain in hibernation for the moment, drummer Philip Selway is using that down time to the fullest. He has just announced a short run of tour dates for early next year in support of his new solo album, 'Weatherhouse,' which is due out Oct. 6.
Though the tour is short, it does include a couple of high profile gigs, notably the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on Feb. 11. Other dates include stops in Leeds, Glasgow and Manchester. Get the full schedule below.
Don't let these solo dates worry you about new Radiohead music, though. Selway recently told Australia's Faster and Louder that Radiohead would in fact be headed back into the studio by month's end to begin work on their first new album since 2001's 'The King Of Limbs,' saying the band were "very keen to get on with the music.”
“We want to make music again together, that is what is going to drive it all along. When we get back together then we’ll discuss what we’ve got and where we want it to go. Even from there we never know where we’ll end up with the record,” he says. In the meantime, Selway has his 'Weatherhouse' record due out, guitarist Jonny Greenwood has done some work with the London Contemporary Orchestra and lead singer Thom Yorke has done his Atoms For Peace project, all of which have been roundly supported by each other.
“We’re all very supportive of what the others do outside of the band," Selway continued, "but we’re recognize it has a real value to us as a five piece as well. Everybody is developing their musicality and it gives us a chance to try out things that maybe we can’t do collectively in Radiohead. It frees up the way we do things in Radiohead."
