RadioheadRadiohead frontman Thom Yorke has posted a message on the band’s website saying the band are “splitting up.”

In a very tongue in cheek post Yorke said the band were washed up before admitting that he was only joking. Thank God for that.

Radiohead are busy at work in the studio laying down tracks for the eagerly awaited follow-up to the 2003 album ‘Hail To The Thief’.

In a typically off-kilter post, Yorke joked: "It is the end of our two week session. We're splitting up its all shit. We're washed up. Finished. Only kidding.

“It was fun. Some of it has been really great fun. And there were moments that stick in my head when I went 'TUNE!' 'TUNE!'"

Guitarist Ed O’Brian hinted that the band have nearly reached completion of the new track ‘Bodysnatchers.’

In his post, as the nme reports, he said: “Friday night the end of a two week session. Riffs and fragments of the songs going round my head. It's been great. It's always difficult to judge right now but I think we may have got 'Bodysnatchers'.

”Had a couple of sticky days at the beginning of the week but saw it through. On a roll now. Lots of stuff to be done yet, but so far so good. The studio is fab, its so good to play in and listen. You know what works and what doesn't.”
