Following the huge success of their secret gig on the Park Stage at Glastonbury, Radiohead have hinted that they may tour.

Talking to BBC 6Music, drummer Phil Selway, who has recently played solo gigs under his own name gave strong indications that the five-piece will go back on the road.

When asked about the prospect of live work, the drummer said, ‘Absolutely that is what we are talking about that the moment, it felt exciting doing that and it felt like we had something else to offer musically.’

About the success of the set at Glastonbury, he continued, ‘It just felt like a new lease of life in what we are doing, and we would like to see where that takes us.’

The band have played relatively few gigs in the UK in recent years aside from appearances at Reading and Leeds festivals in 2009 and a four date tour in 2008.

In addition to the tour the band are also being tipped for a 2013 headline date at Glastonbury.

If the rumours are true it would mean a headlining hat-trick for the band following slots in 1997 and 2003.

In other Radiohead news, the band have announced plans for a remix EP.

Tracks from the band’s most recent album, The King of Limbs have been reworked for a three-track EP released next month.

The fourth and final in a series of remix releases, Give Up the Ghost, Little by Little and Codex feature on the disc.

The three track EP will be available through Radiohead.com and selected independent stores, including an ultra-collectable 12” vinyl edition.
