Atoms For Peace to Tour in 2013?

Will Atoms For Peace be touring in 2013?  They announced their first single yesterday for a song titled “Default”, with an album to follow in 2013.  In an interview with I Like Music Ultraista’s (Nigel Godrich’s new band) Laura Bettinson was asked about touring in the U.S. and said:

“Yeah, we’ve just sold out our pre-order tickets for the LA show, which was great! Hopefully we’ll play for the rest of the year. UK shows in November. They’re confirmed. Then Paris as well. A few European places too. Maybe do some festivals if the opportunity arises. Perhaps Japan and Australia next year before the Atoms For Peace thing kicks off because both of the guys are in it .”

Ultraista recently released their third song titled “Bad Insect”.  Listen to it below.

Atoms For Peace are playing a DJ Set tonight in NYC at Warm Up 2012.
