Canadian band Arcade Fire are getting ready to release their fourth studio album Reflektor on October 28. To promote the release the band will be the musical guest on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on September 28.
It has now been reported by Consequence of Sound that the program will be followed by a 30-minute concert special on Arcade Fire. No details about the special has been released as of yet, but it’s probably safe to assume it will contain quite a bit of material from Reflektor.
The band has done a great job with drumming up interest for their new album, by releasing an interactive music video, and playing a secret gig to which they showed up wearing the giant heads that they wear in the “Reflektor” video.
