Arcade Fire Work on New Album

It’s been a long, crazy year for the Arcade Fire since they emerged from last year’s CMJ Music Marathon with Next Big Thing tattooed across their foreheads, and now the band is looking to go back into the studio to work on a new album. Arcade Fire bassist Tim Kingsbury told that the band “want[s] to start making a new record… We’ve been touring these songs for a couple of years, so we’re ready to move on.” The Arcade Fire’s debut album, Funeral, came out in the U.S. in 2004 and has been a surprising hit for indie label Merge. This fall, the Arcade Fire will open for U2 in their native Montreal on November 26 and 28. The band will appear, organist and all, at the CMJ Music Marathon on Thursday, Sept. 15 at Central Park’s SummerStage.
