Arcade Fire Announce North American Tour

Arcade Fire announced a few days ago that they will go on tour in 2014 to support their new album, Reflektor,  The tour will kick off in March 6 in Louisville, KY and go all the way until Aug. 30 in Montreal, QB.

The band has already played a bunch of tiny shows in L.A., Brooklyn and Montreal, all under the band name "Reflektors".

The new album has more of a dance beat quality with new sounds.  The sound was inspired by Regine Chassagne and Win Butler's trip to Haiti to see Carnival and was later expanded upon by co-producer James Murphy.

Butler said to Rolling Stone magazine, "Going to Carnival for the first time and seeing rara music, which is a kind of street music with all of these horns and African percussion.  I remember being on a beach at three in the morning, and there was a voodoo drummer playing, and he had been dancing for like, four hours with kids and teenagers and they started to get the spirit. . . . It really kind of makes you feel like a hack being in a rock band, having musical experiences like that. It's just like, 'Oh right. There's living, beating folk music that's alive in the modern world.' I've always listened to folk records, but actually experiencing it reminded me of the whole point."

Another point of interest, Arcade Fire is instilling a dress code for this upcoming tour of all the show-goers: they need to wear formal attire.  Interesting, eh?
