Arcade Fire Growing Beards, Working On New Album

Okay, calm down. Calm down. We’ll get to the beards in a second.

The drummer for Arcade Fire, Jeremy Gara, recently sat down for an interview with Canadian radio station CKCU-FM and dropped the news that the band is now in the studio “pretty much full-time.” In the interview, Gara also talked about new ideas for their arena shows, family priorities, and how they’re currently growing beards.

You can listen to the full interview here.

The smells of a new Arcade Fire record are in the air, and boy do they smell delicious. Especially when coupled with the recent hints that LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy is acting as producer. I’ll say that one more time. James Murphy plus Arcade Fire. Are your ears salivating yet? If so, go and get that checked out.

There is no release date on the horizon. However, in the meantime, you can listen to Arcade Fire’s latest song above, titled “Crucified Again,” filmed live for your viewing pleasure. (Note: The video quality is subpar, but the audio is serviceable.)
