It has been a long three years. Arcade Fire’s last album Neon Bible was released in 2007, and the Canadian geniuses have been working hard on the follow up Suburbs – due out on August 2nd 2010.
Fans are right to be excited. Frontman Win Butler gave an interview to Zane Lowe recently in which he declared himself delighted with the record – adding that usually he can’t stand to listen to his own work.
While only a select few managed to get Arcade Fire tickets for tonight’s concert at Hackney Empire, the Montreal band will play live in the UK on a number of other occasions this summer – with confirmed dates at Oxegen Festival outside Dublin – as well as at Leeds and Reading Festivals.
Given that the London gig is in preparation for their performance at Oxegen Festival, it is not unreasonable to imagine that Arcade Fire will arrange something similar before their appearances at Reading and Leeds Festival.
