Remember way back in February when Radiohead released “King of Limbs,” after less than a week's notice that it existed?

Well, the band is getting ready to remind everyone who didn’t pick it up with a massive publicity push that kicks off Saturday, when Thom Yorke and the guys are the musical guests on the “Saturday Night Live” season opener.They will also be the sole guests on a special hour-long “The Colbert Report” on Sept. 26.

Those appearances will set up concerts at Roseland Ballroom on Sept. 28 and 29, the band’s first American concerts since the album’s release. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday through Ticketmaster, with a limit of two per household.
