However, as Yorke told Peterson, "The idea is to go out and play next year on and off during the year."
Yorke also added that Portishead drummer Clive Deamer, who recently performed with Radiohead when they filmed an episode of Live From the Basement for BBC, would be part of the touring band.

Last night, Brit rockers Coldplay performed "Paradise" off their upcoming album, Mylo Xyloto, on The Late Show with David Letterman. The much-anticipated album, which will be released on October 24, is "designed to be a story," as Chris Martin told MTV News. "It's supposed to be about two people who grow up separately in a very big oppressive city, and they each are a bit lost in their lives."
Martin went on to explain that "Paradise" is "about a girl really, the female half of the album, just about being a bit lost in the world and escaping through fantasy."
The anthem, as expected, is destined for arena sing-alongs. As last night's performance illustrated, the band hasn't lost any energy since 2008's Vida la Vida. "Paradise" is the second single off Mylo Xyloto, following the release of "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" this past May. […] Read more »

In an interview with Rolling Stone out today, Geoff Barrow of Portishead discussed the group’s plans for the 20th anniversary of debut Dummy. While Barrow revealed that they have no plans for a rerelease, repackaging with B-sides, or any similar cleaned-up anniversary edition, he did disclose that Portishead will begin working on a new album in January 2012. First, though, the band will do a tour, starting on October 1.
