While the world hasn’t gotten a new Radiohead album since A Moon Shaped Pool came out in 2016, The Smile’s A Light For Attracting Attention is one of the best albums of 2022 so far. The trio, of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood along with drummer Tom Skinner, laid down an excellent guitar-driven collection of tunes like “Thin Thing” and “You’ll Never Work In Television Again” that often feel as macabre and paranoid as Radiohead’s classic musings. Produced by Nigel Godrich, it’s a seriously stunning album and more than just a stopgap in the Radiohead canon.
Today, The Smile announced their first tour of North America and all of the dates will be happening before 2022 comes to a close. Their East Coast run begins in mid-November with dates in Providence, Boston, and New York City, before shooting up to Canada, the Midwest and then ending in on the West Coast for dates in Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Fans across the country will get a chance to experience the band’s new album live and tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, June 17th at thesmileband.com. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
