Radiohead Expected To Reactivate in 2024

Radiohead are gettng ready to return after having a “little break”, according to the band’s drummer Philip Selway.

Radiohead haven’t released new music since 2016 album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ and haven’t performed live since 2018, but after enjoying a lengthy hiatus founding member Selway believes that the group, also comprised of Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood and Ed O’Brien, are getting to the point of wanting to reconnect.

Appearing on a live stream with the Crow Hill Company, the musician said: “We’ve actually had a little break for a minute; the last show that we did was back in 2018, but we’re coming back ’round to that point now. There is just something particular to that relationship – that creative relationship and personal relationship – actually, you can’t get anywhere else.

“We’re all coming back around to that point now of thinking, ‘Right, we’ve had a break – this is it. This feels like something to dive back into and really explore and see what other directions it can take us in.”

During their break, singer Yorke and guitarist-and-keyboardist Greenwood have formed new band The Smile with Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner.

The trio released their debut LP ‘A Light for Attracting Attention’ in 2022 and will unveil second album ‘Wall Of Eyes’ in 2024 as well as setting off on a UK and EU tour.

Earlier this year, Selway explained the motivation for Radiohead’s break, revealing that the members wanted to pursue various side projects.

Speaking to Prog magazine, Selway said: “We’re always talking about stuff. But in terms of an actual kind of collective project, beyond the ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ stuff that we’ve been doing, it’s kind of further down the line for us when that will happen. We’re talking about that, but at the moment everybody’s doing their own thing.

“When the pandemic happened, we’d always planned to take a veer off from Radiohead around that, so we could get on with other stuff. But that just meant that those other projects kind of grew, so we’re allowing time for all of those projects to go where they need to. But yeah, we’ll get together soon and in the next couple of years there will be something there, of some sort.”
