Breaking with conventions is Radiohead's core brand. Also in the public image: shortly before "A Moon Shaped Pool" was released and reached the top of the British charts, Thom Yorke and colleagues deleted all content from the band's website and from social media profiles. Of course there were no interviews or concerts either. This attitude of refusal has so far found its counterpart in the famous desire to decompose music.
The new Radiohead album is out. It bears the title "A Moon Shaped Pool" and was once again accompanied by an online campaign, which is no longer a big surprise. At first the band's homepage gradually disintegrated until only a white area was visible, at the same time all entries disappeared from the band's social media accounts. Shortly afterwards the words "Burn The Witch" could be read on the page. A day later a mysterious video clip of a song of the same name and the announcement that something would happen next Sunday. Meanwhile it was clear even to the last one that it had to be the release of a new album, the completion of which Radiohead had already talked about on several occasions.
The next big thing
The new album is here! It's called "The Incident." As with every new recording of Porcupine Tree, the expectations of fans and critics are enormous: The band has long since earned a reputation as an innovator of art rock. Will the album be the next big thing? Or is it a lot of smoke for nothing? According to bandleader Steven Wilson, "The Incident" is one of the best things he has ever created.
