Thom Yorke's other band-- you know, the one with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Beck/R.E.M. drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco, and Flea-- now has a name: Atoms for Peace. The news comes straight from Thom himself via Radiohead's Dead Air Space blog.

(The more you know: Atoms for Peace was the name of a speech and program spearheaded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 50s that set to promote peaceful nuclear energy and aided countries including Iran in their development of atomic power. It's also the name of a track on Yorke's solo bow, The Eraser.)

And, along with a previously announced set at this year's Coachella, the band is plotting a two-week, eight-date tour of some major U.S. cities this April. Flying Lotus will open up the gigs, which are listed below:



Atoms for Peace:

04-05 New York, NY - Roseland Ballroom *
04-06 New York, NY - Roseland Ballroom *
04-08 Boston, MA - Citi Wang Theatre *
04-10 Chicago, IL - Aragon Ballroom *
04-11 Chicago, IL - Aragon Ballroom *
04-14 Oakland, CA - Fox Theatre *
04-15 Oakland, CA - Fox Theatre *
04-17 Santa Barbara, CA - Santa Barbara Bowl *
04-18 Indio, CA - Coachella

I love how Flea's the only one who doesn't need an introduction.

The only person I really hadn't heard of is Mauro Refosco

Flea is the shit. Even though he was in a Gen-13 movie.
