In 2006, Thom Yorke, lead singer of the English rock band Radiohead, released a solo album called "The Eraser."

In 2016, Yorke has apparently erased his band's presence from the Internet.

On Sunday, fans began noticing the posts on the band's Twitter and Facebook pages were deleted. The quintet's official website,, leads to a blank white page. Yorke's personal Twitter account has also been scrubbed.

The erratic behavior has led fans to wonder if this is all a part of an elaborate album release plan. Some fans in the United Kingdom have reportedly received letters in the mail from the band with the words "Burn the Witch" on them.

The band is no stranger to experimental album releases. In 2007, as the music industry was reeling from upheaval thanks to the Internet, Radiohead released its album "In Rainbows" with a pay-what-you-want model.


The band's tweets have been erased.
