Radiohead is erasing itself from the internet ahead of new album release

It sounds like Radiohead has a serious case of The Bends. According to The Guardian, the English rock band has begun to scrub its presence from the internet, leading fans to wonder what exactly the band has planned. Maybe they’re lost In Rainbows. Okay, enough with the Radiohead puns.

The band’s website, Radiohead.com, leads to a blank white page, while its social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter) have gone dead as well. With a new album reportedly coming out this summer, many have speculated this is some big stunt by the band to drum up anticipation. However, given Radiohead’s very public disdain for online streaming, perhaps this is just another form of protest.

Radiohead has performed stunts like this ahead of big album releases before, so chances are the band will be back online in no time. Last we heard, its follow-up to 2011’s King of Limbs was going to be released in June, but with the band going dark, perhaps we’ll see it hit sooner.
