Radiohead’s The King of Limbs may not have been heralded like some of the band’s prior efforts, but it appears from a new Rolling Stone interview that the group has been enjoying the small bursts of promotional activity surrounding it. It also turns out that the recent spate of live dates from the band will precede a return to the studio to record its follow up in December.
“We can get things together quite rapidly at the moment," said Yorke, who is also recording an album with his Atoms for Peace band. He says that he and procuer/bandmate Nigel Godrich "were excited about [Atoms for Peace] for so long, then we kind of lost our way. So we're taking some steps back."
Expect more live activity form Radiohead in 2011 as well—it turns out that sharing drummer Clive Deamer with Portishead delayed a full-on set of dates this year, which is set to change in 2012. Well, kinda. "It will be sort of on and off, with big gaps," Yorke says of the schedule, before adding: "But not that big."
