Unbelievable! After Radiohead fanatics have spent days deciphering the cryptic lingo now referred to as “WB” (short for Worm Buffet, this name popped up on a T-shirt with the same artwork a while ago on the W.A.S.T.E. merchandise website) which Radiohead has been using to communicate mysterious messages about LP7, all of a sudden the wait is over!!

The band has quite simply announced that the album, called In Rainbows (how very ‘happy’ for Radiohead), will be available for download from Radiohead.com from October 10th. That’s a mere 9 days from now!! You can also pre-order a fancy discbox that will contain a second cd with extra material, artwork AND the whole thing on vinyl. The discbox is expected to be shipped around December 3rd.

And get this: pre-ordering the discbox automatically gives you the possibility to download on October 10th, but if you are only ordering the download and not the discbox, you can enter the amount you want to pay for it yourself!! They’ve definitely made the whole bypassing of a record company an exciting ordeal. The website is getting massive amounts of hits, making it near impossible to order, but after about ten times I finally managed to get through.

I’m not so fond of the artwork though, judge for yourself:
