Following their eigth album ‘King of Limbs’ released earlier this year, fans speculated that it was not a complete representation of the music Radiohead had been working on. Rumours spread that there would be a ‘King of Limbs: Part 2’ released before the end of the year. This was a rumour the band were quick to deny.
In addition to the eight track CD/download, a couple of extra tracks – ‘Supercollider’ and ‘The Butcher’ – appeared on the vinyl version. Still the rumours persisted. The theory suggested there must be more music, there has to be a ‘King of Limbs: Part 2’ since the original album was so short…
On June 20th 2011, Radiohead posted a clip from their upcoming performance on ‘Live From The Basement’. The clip features the debut performance of another song not to make ‘The King of Limbs’.

Love the new layout you got going. Looking forward to making the switch myself here shortly.
I am not sure Radiohead were so quick to deny TKOL2 rumours – everyone is still scratching their heads trying to get answers. This Live from the Basement is a pretty big deal and there is hope that some answers may finally surface after it is all said and done.
Just really wish the band would officially come out and talk about The King of Limbs.
They said there wasn’t going to be ‘KOL2’ though, didn’t they? Seemed like only weeks after the album came out those first rumours were quashed. Who knows what the band have up their sleeve?
