Radiohead has announced a slew of new tour dates for 2016, including three nights in London and the band's first U.S. gigs in four years.

Thom Yorke and company, who last released their eighth studio album The King of Limbs in 2011, will perform at the famed Roundhouse in Camden, North London, from May 26 to 28. The group will also headline shows at Madison Square Garden on July 26 and 27, followed by two arena gigs at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium on August 4 and 8.

New tour dates announced on Monday also include shows in Paris and Amsterdam in May and Mexico City in October. The dates are in addition to previously announced festival gigs including Summersonic festival in Tokyo in August and Lollapalooza Berlin in September.

The official announcement notes that all of the group's 2016 tour dates will be headline slots with tickets on sale from March 18. Tickets will be limited, however, to two per customer to minimize secondhand resales.

The band's burgeoning tour schedule has sparked some speculation that a new album could be on the way to accompany the dates.

Radiohead last released new music in late 2015 when they unveiled their unused soundtrack submission for the James Bond movie SPECTRE. Taking the same name as the movie, the group posted the track to their official website as a Christmas present to fans.

In a message they said plans to use the track "didn't work out" but the song "became something of our own, which we love very much."

In February, Sam Smith earned an Oscar for his contribution to the SPECTRE soundtrack, "The Writing's on the Wall".
