Decorated musician Thom Yorke is going solo before the holidays this year. The Radiohead frontman has announced two December shows in California, hitting the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on Dec. 12 and Fox Theater in Oakland on Dec. 14.

Yorke's solo gigs will run in conjunction with the CD and vinyl reissue of his 2014 solo album, Tomorrow's Modern Boxes, which is slated for a Dec. 8 release. His sophomore solo effort and first since 2006's The Eraser, the album will be available on streaming services for the first time upon its release in December.

Longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich will join Yorke on his short string of shows. The duo, which performed under the moniker Atoms for Peace during the The Eraser touring cycle, will also be accompanied by videographer Tarik Barri, who will contribute visual effects to the performance.

The two solo shows come in the wake of Radiohead's world tour in support of A Moon Shaped Pool this past summer. Guitarist Ed O'Brien revealed in a July interview with BBC Two that the band would take some down time for solo projects before revving Radiohead back up for a small tour in 2018.

Yorke and Co. will also hit the Day For Night Festival in Houston on Dec. 17. The three-day festival will include performances by Nine Inch Nails, Solange, Justice, St. Vincent and many more. Grab tickets to Yorke's Dec. 12 show at LA's Fonda here
