Radiohead erases internet presence
The band Radiohead has left the internet.
On Sunday, the rock band seemed remove its online presence, replacing its home page with a plain white screen, deleting its Twitter and Facebook history—and sending out hard copy leaflets in the post.
Meanwhile, fans have received cards in the mail from the band which say “Sing the song of sixpence that goes ‘Burn the witch’.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is all stoking speculation about what it means for the band’s ninth studio album. Fans had been expecting a June release. The removal of its digital presence, though, may suggest it could arrive a little sooner than expected.
…according to Germanic folklore, Walpurgisnacht — or “Witches’ Night” — falls on either 4/30 (today) or 5/1 (tomorrow), depending on the year. Radiohead recently started two companies, Dawn Chorus LLP and Dawnchoruss LTD, and International Dawn Chorus Day is held on the first Sunday in May, which also happens to be tomorrow, 5/1.
