Swimming in acclaim after the release of their excellent new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, Thom Yorke and company are touring the world. Today, Radiohead revealed the acts that will support them at several of these upcoming shows, announcing their openers in a series of tweets.

Radiohead’s world tour kicks off in Amsterdam on May 20 and closes out at Austin City Limits Oct. 7-9—tickets are on sale now, although many of the shows have already sold out. The prospect of a Radiohead tour was already exciting enough, but the band’s newly announced openers are a compelling trio of avant-garde artists. We loved Holly Herndon’s haunting and intricate Platform; Shabazz Palaces, whom you can listen to here, are far from your average hip-hop duo; and Dawn of MIDI have made waves with their danceable subversions of jazz.

Enjoy some vintage Radiohead Paste Cloud audio below, and beneath that, find the band’s updated summer tour dates. A Moon Shaped Pool is available on iTunes, with physical copies due out on June 17.
