Radiohead have disappeared completely

Radiohead, a band known for innovative ways of getting their music into the world, have deleted all information from their own website, Facebook page, and Twitter account.

The word is that it’s a clue somehow to how their new album will be distributed, but today it made me think of an older song of theirs from 2000’s Kid A, titled “How to Disappear Completely”.

Given the omnipresence and feeling of omnipotence that comes with people trolling the internet for an almost unlimited amount of information, going “silent” before shocking the internet with new material seems like a revolutionary act of rebellion.
