The super-group consists of Flea, bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joey Waronker, drummer for R.E.M., Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco of Forro in the Dark, and finally, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.
“It has been decided that we call ourselves Atoms for Peace,” Yorke said on the Radiohead web site. “Hope you like the name. It seemed bleedin’ obvious.”
In April, Atoms for Peace will begin a brief tour starting with two nights at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. The tour will come to a close on April 18, with a performance at the Coachella Festival in Indio, California.
