Radiohead Offers 'Love and Support' After Fans Got Attacked at Album Release Party


Thom Yorke and his bandmates slam the violent incident happening during the album release party in Istanbul, Turkey.
Radiohead reacted to the violent incident at a party in Turkey celebrating the release of their new album "A Moon Shaped Pool". Fans coming to Istanbul's Velvet IndieGround Records for the listening party were attacked by Islamic extremists.

"Our hearts go out to those attacked tonight at Velvet IndieGround in Istanbul," Thom Yorke and his bandmates say in a statement. "We hope that someday we will be able to look back on such acts of violent intolerance as things of the ancient past. For now, we can only offer our fans in Istanbul our love and support."

The religious group was angry because alcohol was served at the event during Islam's holy month of Ramadan. Several people were injured in the attack, but luckily there was no fatality. One fan was reportedly left with a bloodied head after hit in the face with a bottle.
