In an interview with Zane Lowe yesterday on Radio1 Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke revealed he would be at Glastonbury Festival in some capacity.

York was joined by his fellow Atoms for Peace band members Nigel Godrich, and Joey Waronker to talk about their forthcoming 'Amok' album. The band also revealed that plans for 'shows' were "on the table" and they were discussing touring "Europe and ting" after the band's bassist Flea has finished touring with Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Replying to a question asking if Atoms for Peace would be appearing at Glastonbury Festival, Yorke replied, "No.. we won't have got our shit together by then." Then Godrich and Waronker add, "Probably", "Are you sure?" and "Maybe?"

Yorke then reveals that members of Atoms For Peace could be performing at the Festival, hinting at a possible Radiohead or Thom Yorke (and band) appearance, adding "Yes, no, maybe, not as the whole unit, maybe as a broken part of the unit. I've got to get in somehow for free, so...."

They then add, "Yes, we are planning to go to Glastonbury, and so we have got to do something, but it might not be that."
