EXIT R:Evolution: Atoms for Peace to headline EXIT Festival

Thom Yorke’s new project - Atoms for Peace will spearhead the EXIT R:Evolution with their unique blend of experimental electronic rock where digital and analogue blur.

Joining Thom on the Main Stage will be Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker of Beck/REM and percussion virtuoso Mauro Refosco. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see such highly acclaimed artists performing on stage together in the unique setting of the Petrovaradin Fortress at EXIT.

This is how they got there, according to Yorke -"When we first hung out, we were at Flea's house. We got wasted, played pool and listened to Fela Kuti all night. It was that idea of trance-ing out.“

One of the founders of EXIT, Ivan Milivojev, said: "We are very excited to host one of the most wanted bands of today. Every European festival is eager to get Atoms for Peace this year, and we are happy to be able to do so."

The band will be performing tracks from their eagerly anticipated debut album “Amok” which is due to be released on 25th February. Find out more and watch the video for the single “Judge Jury and Executioner” here: http://www.xlrecordings.com/releases/21692
