Radiohead fans have been given more news on what the band are planning for 2006, and the stage they currently find themselves at as far as the next record is concerned.

Ed O'Brien was a guest on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show this week, and revealed that the band plan to hit the road in the spring to play some small UK dates. This will be followed by a summer trip to America.

By the time they hit the road they hope to have around ten new tracks in the set list, with another recording session scheduled for February.

The band have been talking to producer Mark Stent, who's worked with Madonna and Bjork and they hope to work with him on the next recording session.

The plan is to have a couple of tracks ready to be downloads to co-inside with the tour, the album is likely to surface later in the Summer.

Recently rumours were circulating that the band were to play next August's V Festival, a story the band themselves denied.

Although there is no news on festival appearances as yet, major shows will doubtless follow the trip to the States.
