Like most Radiohead fans, I have learnt not to read too much into anything the band says or does between releases. But deleting every post from every social media platform and an entire website cannot go without comment; especially when an album is due.
The band’s social media profile and cover images on Twitter and Facebook were changed to plain white squares about 45 minutes ago, and every post has been deleted or hidden. You could be forgiven for thinking radiohead.com has a server error:
What’s coming? Maybe another few months of silence. Maybe a new release very soon. Or maybe a VR app called Negative Space. No matter what, one thing the band has already put out is a flyer featuring “BURN THE WITCH” in large print, with the Radiohead bear making an appearance too. Hopefully the only thing burnt, apart from the new CDs, will be the band’s web presence.
