Radiohead is reopening the vault once again tonight, Thursday, May 21, for a trip back to 2011 — specifically, the band’s The King of Limbs From the Basement performance.

The video will go up on the official Radiohead YouTube page starting at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET. Just tune in below at the proper time:

The King of Limbs was the eighth full-length album from Radiohead, released in February 2011. The record was a bit of an adventure even by the esteemed experimental band’s standards, and front man Thom Yorke reflected on the From the Basement performance on Twitter:

Turning The King of Limbs into a live performance and filming it was a strange and wild thing, we were not sure if it would work. Thanks to everyone’s dedication and commitment it ended up being, for me, one of my favourite musical experiences.

This trip back through the Radiohead vaults is the latest in a series of performances uploaded to the internet. Recent weeks saw the band reprise its 2016 Summer Sonic set:

This is all an ongoing project from Radiohead announced in early April as a means of unearthing especially key live performances from the band’s history as a means of keeping fans entertained during the COVID-19 pandemic.
