Arcade Fire to release new double album 'Reflektor' next month

This fall the biggest indie band in the land, Arcade Fire, is back with their fourth full-length album Reflektor, which will be a double album. It will be released on October 29 via Durham-based Merge Records and the press machine for it has just kicked into high gear.

The band released the video for the album's title track on Monday which you can check out below. They've also release a really interesting interactive video that combines your webcam with your smartphone to create some cool effects to accompany the song. Check that out at

Arcade Fire will be the musical guest on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on September 28, which will be hosted by Tina Fey. There are certainly more things in the works to build hype for the album. Maybe the band will finally return to the Triangle for a proper show in the next year or so in support of Reflektor or at least show up for Merge's 25th anniversary party next year. (Or at least we hope.)
