Radiohead Disappears From the Internet

Radiohead disappeared from the Internet overnight, possibly signaling the imminent arrival of the group’s ninth studio album.

The British band’s website went down Sunday, leaving a blank page for visitors, while their six-year-old Twitter feed read “@radiohead hasn’t tweeted yet.” The group’s Facebook posts were also deleted.

Brian Message, Radiohead’s manager, reportedly revealed the new album would be released in June in a tweet that has since been deleted. But recent activities are leaving fans speculating the album may come sooner.

Fans in the U.K. received cryptic leaflets on Saturday. “Sing the song of sixpence that goes ‘Burn the Witch,'” read the leaflet. “We know where you live.” The leaflet included a Radiohead logo in the bottom right corner.

Radiohead is no stranger to surprise releases. In 2007, the group launched the first experimental “pay what you want” download for its seventh album, “In Rainbows.” For it’s 2011 release “King of Limbs,” Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke handed out copies of a Radiohead “newspaper” at a London record store.

Yorke also deleted tweets from his Twitter, although other group members’ accounts are still going strong.

The band appears to be taking their own advice from their 2000 record “How to Disappear Completely.”
