For the first time since Radiohead released their eighth LP, The King of Limbs, fans will be able to watch the acclaimed outfit perform the material live. On July 1st, the BBC will air Radiohead – The King of Limbs: Live From The Basement, a 55-minute broadcast featuring the band performing their album in a “studio setting with some additional behind the scenes material,” according to an issued press release.

As the title indicates, the episode will be part of From the Basement, which is a podcast turned TV program created by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. The band will be filmed and recorded by the From The Basement team, which includes Godrich, “Dilly Gent, who commissioned many of the memorable Radiohead videos and Grant Gee who filmed the Radiohead documentary Meeting People is Easy.”

“The programme is filmed in HD, will have no audience and no presenter – just a rare opportunity to see an intimate performance from one of the greatest bands in the world,” the press release goes on to note. The BBC plans to distribute the program to a “substantial network of broadcasters in place for its premiere.”

Radiohead previously performed on From the Basement in 2008 and you can watch the entire episode below:
