Atoms For Peace are Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke's side project with Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, super-producer Nigel Godrich and percussionist Mauro Refosco. They release their debut album Amok on February 25 via XL.

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich spoke to Zane Lowe before playing "Judge Jury and Executioner". They discussed the possibility of UK concerts, during which they confirmed that they would be playing shows in the UK and Europe, but that they didn't know when. "It's still being figured out," said Nigel. "It's on the table."

When asked if they'd be playing this summer's Glastonbury Festival, Yorke said that they wouldn't. "We won’t have got our shit together by then," he explained.

Lowe then asked if fans would ever be hear the songs Radiohead recorded at Jack White's studio in Nashville last year. Yorke said yes, but that: "It's in the mountain of stuff that I've got to finish... first I've got to get the kids from school."
