The return of Radiohead is imminent.
On Thursday, the pioneering British band announced three headlining gigs at European festivals, their first concerts since 2012. And Radiohead is also reportedly planning a North American tour that would take place this summer.
Radiohead will headline the long-running Primavera Sound Festival, which is set for June 2-4 in Barcelona, Spain. LCD Soundsystem, Sigur Rós, PJ Harvey and Tame Impala are also scheduled to perform at Primavera Sound. Watch an announcement video for the festival above.
Along with Mumford and Sons, the German rap groups Deichkind and Fettes Brot and Two Door Cinema Club, Radiohead is also set to headline OpenAir St. Gallen in Switzerland on June 30-July 3. And on July 8, Radiohead will perform at the NOS Alive Festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
In addition to those festival dates, Radiohead is expected to make their return to North America this summer. Although no dates have been announced, Consequence of Sound is reporting that the band is likely to do a North American festival tour in July, which would position them up as one of the headliners at Lollapalooza in Chicago, set for July 28-31.
After spending last fall in the studio, Radiohead is expected to release their still-untitled ninth album sometime this year. If their past two albums are any indication, the new record will pop up with little advance notice.
