Atoms For Peace, a new "supergroup" led by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will play the Barclay's Center on Friday, kicking off its United States tour in Brooklyn.
The concert follows the release of the group's first album, AMOK.
In addition to Yorke and Flea, longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker (known for work with Beck, R.E.M and Elliott Smith) and percussionist Mauro Refosco, make up Atoms for Peace.
Atoms For Peace made news last July after pulling AMOK and Yorke's other solo project, The Eraser, off of popular streaming service Spotify, Godrich announced on Twitter.
"These things cost money.. Pink floyds catalogue has already generated billions of dollars for someone(not necessarily the band) so now putting it on a streaming site makes total sense.. But if people had been listening to spotify instead of buying records in 1973… I doubt very much if dark side would have been made.. It would just be too expensive… I think the point is – that streaming suits catalogue.. But cannot work as a way of supporting new artists work," added in writing, according to Consequence of Sound.
The group is scheduled to start a European tour in July, after wrapping up its American tour.
