Before watching Arcade Fire’s performance of “Afterlife” on last night’s (Feb. 20) episode of The Tonight Show, make sure you’ve digested your breakfast. There’s a lot of spinning.
With very large drums in tow—their nod to Imagine Dragons as Win Butler joked with the DJ—the band performed live at the Triple J Radio studios, showing off their newly expanded drum section.
Arcade Fire fans will soon have extra opportunities to dance under the disco ball, as the band has added additional dates on the extensive Reflektor Tour, with even more to be announced.
Celebrities went all out this year, what with their resources and their Instagram accounts. Here are some of our favorite costumes from the year, from vampires to of course Miley Cyrus and Ellen Degeneres as Nicki Minaj.
Diehard Arcade Fire fans will recognize the highly danceable “Afterlife” as the second song the band performed on the premiere episode for the current season of ‘Saturday Night Live.’
The album’s rhythmic focus was inspired by the drummers of Haiti, where Butler’s wife and fellow bandmate, Regine Chassagne is from.
Today (July 12), the band unexpectedly announced October 29 release date for their as-yet-untitled fourth studio releasing while casually responding to a fan’s praises.
