Radiohead albums have been coming once every four years or so these days. And while there's no official release date to the group's next album, any nugget or kernel of progress will cause message boards to explode and fans of the band to run naked through fractured, arrhythmic fields.

The band will head back to the studio at the end of summer to begin work on their ninth album and first since 2011's The King of Limbs. Speaking to BBC 6Music, bassist Colin Greenwood said (via NME): "We're taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of the summer."

Frontman Thom Yorke is currently prepping the February 25 release of Atoms for Peace' debut album, recently announcing DJ sets with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich next month in London, Berlin and New York.
