This will be the first set of live shows of the band since 2012.

Many fans are pointing out that this could mean that the band will have a new album, a follow-up to 2011’s King of Limbs. This, however, was not mentioned in the tour announcement.

The band, however, has been giving hints that they are on their way to releasing new material. Last year, a photo of the band in the studio was posted online, and guitarist Jonny Greenwood said in October that “lots has been recorded,” although the band did not confirm any specific plans yet.

The band’s announcement also said that they are minimising secondary ticketing, so there will be restrictions, “including a limit of 2 tickets per order on all shows. Please carefully read the ticket store’s terms & conditions before you buy as you may need to bring ID to match your ticket.”
