Emerging from Montreal, Canada, in the early 2000s, Arcade Fire quickly earned a reputation for transcendent live shows that brought arena-size ambition to stages of all sizes. By the close of the tour supporting its 2004 debut album Funeral — widely hailed as one of the best and most important albums of the 2000s — Arcade Fire’s live experience was already raising thousands of voices in ecstatic unison nightly—while the band found itself sharing stages with the likes of U2 and David Bowie.
Titled in tribute to the memories of family members, Funeral’s cathartic confrontation of tragedy and life-affirming celebration of love, hope and band members’ Haitian roots has only grown in stature over the years.
WE, the sixth Arcade Fire album was released May 6, 2022. Produced by Nigel Godrich, Win & Régine, WE is a 40 minute epic as much about the forces that threaten to pull us away from the people we love, as it is inspired by the urgent need to overcome them.
