Good news for the Radiohead tour in 2012 ... there have been four new shows added: Apr 9 in Seattle, Apr. 11 in San Jose, Apr. 12 in Santa Barbara, and in case you've trapped in an offline bubble for the last 15 hours -- Radiohead is a headliner at the Coachella Festival for 2012, headlining the most coveted Saturday night spot.
Going to any part of the Radiohead tour? You're likely to hear new Radiohead songs: "We're trying to keep it creative. We've got new songs, we've been rehearsing about four or five new songs this week so we're going to try and take those on the road. It feels really good," said guitarist Ed O'Brien when speaking to XFM's Mary Anne Hobbs.
Radiohead singer Thom Yorke said the same thing back in October when in the U.S., speaking to Rolling Stone: "We can get things together quite rapidly at the moment," talking about a new song titled "Come to Your Senses." "We have this version of it. It's a five-minute rehearsal, but it has the essence of what we need. There are a few of those. It would be fun to have them ready when we go to play next year. I don't know how we would release them."
