The Smile play Roma Summer Fest 2024 in Italy

By popular demand, THE SMILE, the group formed by Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead with Tom Skinner, announce a new show in Rome! In addition to the already announced date of Sunday 23rd June 2024, the band will pay a second date in the capital on Monday 24th June 2024 again at the Cavea Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone for the Roma Summer Fest.


“Friend of a Friend”, the third single after “Bending Hectic” and “Wall of Eyes”, anticipates the new album Wall Of Eyes out on January 26, 2024 on XL Recordings. The album was recorded between Oxford and Abbey Road Studios and is produced and mixed by former collaborator Sam Petts-Davies and the string arrangements are by the London Contemporary Orchestra.

The video for Friend Of A Friend, created by director Paul Thomas Anderson, will premiere alongside listening to the album in surround sound at a series of unique events hosted in independent cinemas between January 18th and 25th. The Italian event will be held in Milan on Saturday 20 January at 8.30pm at the Cinema Godard of Fondazione Prada in Largo Isarco 2.

Wall Of Eyes is the follow-up to his 2022 debut A Light For Attracting Attention, which received acclaim from magazines including The Guardian, Pitchfork, The Observer, The Needle Drop, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, Uncut and MOJO, and many more.
