Radiohead will play Madison Square Gardens in New York on July 26-27, the Shrine Auditorium in L.A. on Aug. 4 and 8, and Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes on Oct. 3-4. Among the festivals are Les Nuits Des Fourvieres in Lyon, France, Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Osheaga Music And Arts Festival in Montreal, among others.

As to the new album, Consequence of Sound noted that:
