Thom Yorke's side project previously known as ???? will hit the road this April under its new official name, Atoms For Peace. Yorke assembled the live outlet to bring his 2006 solo album The Eraser to the stage, and debuted the band - which features Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, producer Nigel Godrich, Beck drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco - during a string of shows in Los Angeles last year.
Atoms For Peace will play 9 dates total on their tour, with 2 of those shows at Oakland's Fox Theater. As for why Yorke chose Atoms For Peace, the title of a song on The Eraser, as the name for the band, it just "seemed bleedin' obvious," the Radiohead frontman writes.
