Drummer Jeremy Gara says they’re ” still mixing and trying to decide which songs will end up on the record, because we’ve recorded more than we need”, but all the tracks are finished on the new Arcade Fire record!
Will Butler hinted last June that we could have a new album by March ’17, but this is the first concrete news we’ve gotten since.
Gara also went on to say that “From my perspective, it looks like Arcade Fire starts in April and finish around April 2019” when asked about possible touring plans! Maybe a spot at McMahon or the Dome?
Ugh, probably not… We’ll likely have to drive to see it with those jerks in Edmonton who are a bunch of jerks with a fancy new arena full of jerks that bands really like to play in. Cause they’re jerks.
