Thom Yorke is heading to Tokyo for his first Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes show.
The Radiohead singer will perform music from his second solo album at Hostess Club’s all-nighter at Summersonic Festival on August 15. The line-up also includes FFS (aka Franz Ferdinand and Sparks), Matthew Herbert, Spritualized, Jon Hopkins and Bo Ningen, so if you happen to be in Japan that weekend, it’s a hot ticket.
As CMU reports, Nigel Godrich confirmed on Twitter last week that he would be on hand “with some modern boxes” and that Tarik Barri would be providing visuals – we’re willing to be there’ll be more live dates announced soon. Find out more about the Japan show from Hostess Club.
Yorke has lately been working on an 18-day-long composition for Radiohead’s regular visual collaborator Stanley Donwood, and, less happily, has become the face of “marital and sexual problems in men”.
