Yesterday Radiohead’s Thom Yorke announced the official release date for his side project, Atoms For Peace. Thom Yorke on vocals, Nigel Godrich producing, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea on bass, Joey Waronker on drums and Mauro Refosco on percussion, the debut album Amok will hit Feb 26, 2013.

To tide fans over until February, Yorke advises fans to visit Atoms For Peace’s official site for something to “stare at.”

“We formed to learn to play The Eraser record, if you don’t know that, and discovered a really good energy doing that… and it fell into this record,” Yorke said in a press release.

“I’m still reeling from being on tour for much of the year but we are planning to get together and play etc next year ! We’re figuring all that out right now.

“Atoms is a ongoing and open ended project, where it leads i know not for certain… which is what is nice about it.”

7/17 update: The CD & vinyl is available for pre-order on Amazon now!!

*– “alleged album art & name.  If you remember what Ben Folds did for Way To Normal by leaking a nearly full “fake” album ahead of the regular album… well, take things with a grain of salt. :)

Opeth’s Heritage (goofy cover art)

1st Jun 11 (Wed) 9 comments

Behold, the cheesy-as-hell-looking cover art for Opeth’s upcoming album Heritage (out 9/20/2011 on Roadrunner)…

I just checked, it’s not April 1st again.  Does June 1st represent a similar joke day in Sweden?  Seriously… their faces as fruit on the tree?  Seriously, you guys.  I think it’d actually be an OK album cover without the heads on the tree thing.  With it, though, I classify this as a “death metal fail.”

And, I can’t make out which band member is in the lower right.  Should he be fearful for his job?

I was gonna post a blog about a reminder about Orange Tulip Conspiracy‘s upcoming West Coast tour, Opeth and wrapping their latest video, or Will Ferrell and his George W. Bush stage production, or Wynton Marsalis on the Colbert Report, or a too cute for school puppy, or Kevin Smith doing a space film next… but it ALL got sidetracked due to this amazing new album cover (thanks EW blog):

Animal Collective‘s Merriweather Post Pavilion (due out Jan. 20, 2009)

THIS is NOT an animated GIF. It’s a regular, 1-layer jpeg.  I downloaded it and it doesn’t have any funky layering going on.  It’s all a trick of the eyes…

Wicked cool.
