Arcade Fire have set the release date for their fourth album. In response to a simple tweet from a fan ("You're my favorite"), the band responded, "Thanks. Our new album will be out October 29th." They included a bizarre blown-out photo with the message excerpted above and appearing in all of its collaged and overexposed glory below.

As previously reported, LCD Soundsystem main man James Murphy has leant an hand in the production department, alongside the Montreal band's longtime collaborator Markus Dravs (Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, Björk). The latter worked on Arcade Fire's Grammy Award-wiFnning 2010 LP The Suburbs. The chamber-pop posse debuted some new songs at a secret gig back in December, and one called "Crucified Again" before that.

In the time since, founders and front-people Win Butler and Régine Chassagne delivered an indie-rock scion unto the world — a seven pound baby boy. Butler has also announced his intent to compose a score for an independent film, Home Burial, inspired by the Robert Frost poem of the same name. Revolt TV has reported that a new single is due out September 9.
