Thom Yorke has confirmed a new series of live electronic performances to take place this fall in North America with Nigel Godrich and Tarik Barri, aka Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes.
The new shows will feature Thom Yorke along with Godrich and visual artist Barri performing songs spanning Yorke’s solo works The Eraser and Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, Atoms For Peace’s Amok, as well as new and unreleased material.
Following the September 2014 release of Yorke’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes album, he, Godrich and Barri embarked on their first tour, covering the UK, Europe and Japan throughout 2015. Following Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ December 2017 reissue on XL Recordings, the trio made its U.S. debut headlining theaters in Los Angeles and Oakland and appearing at the Day For Night Festival in Houston. More recently, the trio played a series of U.S. dates November 23 through December 22, 2018, of which critics had to say:
“A beauty to behold… If there were ever a rock star to affirm the power and necessity of dancing, to return it to the realm of vital human expression, it is Yorke.”
— Washington Post
“Dense, intricate dance music designed to get lost in”
—Los Angeles Times
“Music to careen through the Star Gate to… And throughout it all, there remained his voice, as grand, elastic, and emotive as he’s ever been”
— Boston Globe
Prior to the North American tour, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes will embark on a run of dates throughout Europe and Asia, beginning July 2 in Cologne, Germany and concluding July 28 in Seoul, South Korea.
