It's the Summer of Arcade Fire! An endless stream of Arcade Fire songs, videos and information has been coming out of the Arcade Fire machine for the past month, and shows no signs of slowing down with two new songs surfacing. Consequence of Sound was good enough to Soundcloud them after they originally appeared on 107.7 The End and Zane Lowe's BBC Radio show.
It's been a few years since Arcade Fire have toured the U.S., and now they're ready to play a number of shows east of the Mississippi in August. It will almost be an Arcade Fire/Spoon tour, as they'll play together for a number of shows. Arcade Fire will donate $1 from every ticket to Partners In Health.
Tickets are on sale now.
They're touring in support of their new album The Suburbs, due ot on August 3rd via Merge Records (nicely timed with the tour). The Suburbs was co-produced by Markus Dravs (Coldplay, Bjork). It will be the follow up to 2007's Neon Bible. It will be a CD and double-LP offering, and was recorded in Montreal and New York. This is Arcade Fire's third full-length studio album.
