Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has announced a North American tour for later this year.

He’ll play 13 shows around his previously announced sets at Austin City Limits, where he’ll be joined by Nigel Godrich and audiovisual artist Tarik Barri in the trio’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes project.

The shows will get under way at Laval’s Place Bell on September 26 and wrap up with a set at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on October 29.

Tickets will go on general sale from 10am local time this coming Friday (June 21).

News of the tour comes just days after cryptic poster ads for Yorke’s upcoming solo album began to pop up in cities around the world for a company called Anima, including a series in London.

The adverts carried the headline: “Do you have trouble remembering your dreams?” and had the phone number 07588 733 111 printed at the bottom.

Calling the number reveals a short portion of the track titled Not The News.

Last week, Radiohead decided to release an 18-track collection of demos recorded around the time they were piecing together their 1997 album OK Computer after the files were stolen from Yorke’s archive.

The band pushed the material out through Bandcamp for a limited time after the thief demanded they pay $150,000 for their return.
