Arcade Fire Album Release Date

2013-07-12 by Vegeta of Nazareth | 42 Comments
Arcade Fire has announced October 29th, 2013 to be the release date of their currently untitled new album.

The songs were commented on to be "dance-y and groovy," (possibly influenced from being partially recorded at the studio of LCD Soundsystem frontman, James Murphy) and “rooted in the mid-19th century and African American history in the US."

A single is expected to be out September 9th.

The cover looks like they blew up EPCOT.
And I can see it now on Pitchfork. "Great, but not Funeral"

Looks like they want to take their suburban stab at Remain in Light.

@HD Funeral deserves pretty much all of its praise, Neon Bible is an underrated gem, The Suburbs is overrated but still good (it is to Arcade Fire what The Wall was to Pink Floyd)

Yeah Neon Bible has a handful of phenomenal songs (Keep the Car Running, Intervention, No Cars Go), but overall it's streets behind Funeral and The Suburbs imo.

This is probably my most anticipated release for the rest of the year.

...and My Body is a Cage ofc
I like NB more the Suburbs because each track just seems to do more and feel more...distinctive. Whilst the Suburbs is solid (and would have been damn near perfect as a 10-12 track album) songs like Rococo and We Used to Wait get very repetitive
This is probs my #2 most anticipated, after Kayo Dot

I agree that The Suburbs doesn't have many individual tracks that stand out, but by the same token there isn't a single one I don't like, and I think it all works really well as a whole. For me, Neon Bible works in virtually the opposite way.

@baseline: that's a pretty heavy statement to say that they intentionally released a bad album. Does any artist actually do that? Kid A was Radiohead trying break away from Ok Computer, but they didn't have to sacrifice quality to do it

@YourDarkAffected Bob Dylan intentionally released a bad album, Self Portrait, to get hippies to move off of his lawn.

The cover looks like they blew up EPCOT.


Don't think that picture was said to be the cover, though (not to my knowledge/not yet). Just a picture they posted along with the announced date

that picture is not said to be the cover, and the 'epcot' thing to which you refer is called a geodesic dome
