Just last week, we talked about the forthcoming Arcade Fire LP as one of our highlights we are looking forward to in 2017. Now, drummer Jeremy Gara has confirmed that the recording is finished on the album and it's being mixed right now. While there is no official date yet for the release, the band's tour dates have them playing numerous summer festivals, making a mid-year release likely.
Speaking to Red Bull Poland, Gara even laid out some vague plans for a very busy touring schedule for the Montreal outfit. "From my perspective," Gara said, "it looks like Arcade Fire starts [touring] in April and finish around April 2019.”
In the meantime, Arcade Fire are planning the release of The Reflektor Tapes/Live At Earls Court on January 27. The DVD features concert footage from the band's 2014 shows at The Earls Court in London.
