Arcade Fire is an indie rock band based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada which is based around the husband and wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. In 2004, their first full-length album Funeral was recorded. While the group does use the mainstay rock instruments of guitar, drums and bass guitar, they also employ an array of more eccentric musical instruments for a rock band, such as strings, accordion, various brass and harp.

History

Win Butler, the lead vocalist of Arcade Fire

Formation and early history (1995–2004)

The band was formed while Win Butler was at the Phillips Exeter Academy and originally consisted of Butler, Josh Deu, and Tim Kile (now of Wild Light).[1] The band's current lineup formed around the husband and wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne around mid-2003 and was solidified in late 2003 to early 2004 when their first full-length album Funeral was recorded. Before this, an eponymous EP (often referred to by fans as the Us Kids Know EP) was sold at early shows.

Arcade Fire is known for their enthralling live performances as well as their use of a large number of musical instruments. In addition to mainstays guitar, drums and bass guitar, members play piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass, xylophone, keyboard, French horn, accordion, hurdy gurdy, harp and mandolin. With several able musicians, Arcade Fire takes most of their instrumental diversity on tour and band members switch instrumental duties throughout their shows. The number of instruments, along with a wide set of musical influences, has provided a substantial number of resources on which to draw during the recording process. The promise shown by the band in their live shows allowed them to land a record contract with the independent record label Merge Records.[3] For other uses, see Guitar (disambiguation). ...

When asked about the rumour that the band's name refers to a fire in an arcade, Win Butler replied: "It's not a rumour, it's based on a story that someone told me. It's not an actual event, but one that I took to be real. I would say that it's probably something that the kid made up, but at the time I believed him."[4] The arcade in question was the Exeter arcade and bandstand in the town square of Exeter, New Hampshire, where both Butlers attended Phillips Exeter Academy preparatory school.[5] Location in Rockingham County, New Hampshire Coordinates: Country United States State New Hampshire County Rockingham County Incorporated 1638  - Board of Selectmen Paul Binette, Chairman Robert Eastman Joe Pace William Campbell Lionel Ingram Area    - Town 51. ... , Phillips Exeter Academy (most commonly called Exeter, Phillips Exeter or PEA) is a co-educational independent boarding school for grades 9–12, located on 619 acres in Exeter, New Hampshire, U.S., fifty miles north of Boston [1].

Funeral (2004–2006)

Funeral, debuted in September 2004 in Canada and in February 2005 in the UK. The title of the debut album was chosen because of the deaths of several relatives of band members during recording. These events created a somber atmosphere which influenced songs such as "Une année sans lumière" ("A Year Without Light"), "In the Backseat" and "Haiti", Chassagne's elegy to her lost homeland.[6] Singles from Funeral Released: June 20, 2004 Released: March 28, 2005 Released: May 23, 2005 Released: September 12, 2005 Released: February 16, 2006 Funeral is the highly critically-acclaimed debut album by Arcade Fire. ...

David Bowie heard the band while on tour and brought them to the attention of label owners. Still without a major label backing, the success of the band and the album, Funeral, has been acclaimed as an Internet phenomenon. After a 9.7 rating from Pitchfork, Merge Records sold out their inventory of Funeral and it became the label's first album in the Billboard 200 chart.[7] The band booked small clubs for their 2004 tour, but growing interest forced many venue changes, far beyond the band's expectations, and continued internationally into mid-2005 throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and the SummerSonic Festival in Japan. Taking much of the summer of 2005 off, the band made six key festival appearances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the Sasquatch! Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Reading Festival in the UK, Electric Picnic in Ireland and the Lowlands Festival in the Netherlands. Funeral made many top ten album lists for 2004, with Pitchfork, Filter and No Ripcord crowning it the album of the year. With the release of Funeral in 2005 in the UK, Japan and Australia, Arcade Fire also made many top lists for 2005. The MTV2 2005 Review hosted by Zane Lowe named Funeral Album of the Year, and NME named Funeral Number 2[8] in their list of 2005's best albums and "Rebellion (Lies)" the 2nd best track behind Hounds of Love. By November 2005, Funeral had gone gold in both Canada and the UK and sold in excess of half a million copies worldwide,[9] a phenomenal number for an independent release with minimal television or radio exposure. It has also surpassed Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea as the biggest selling Merge Records album to date.[10] David Bowie (pronounced ) (born David Robert Jones on 8 January 1947) is an English musician, actor, producer, arranger, and audio engineer. ...

Arcade Fire was featured on the April 4, 2005 cover of Time Magazine's Canadian edition and hailed as a band who "helped put Canadian music on the world map". On May 1, 2005, the band performed to approximately 15,000 fans at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.[11] In May 2005, the band signed a short-term publishing contract with EMI for Funeral and in June the band released a new single, "Cold Wind", on Six Feet Under, Vol. 2: Everything Ends, the second soundtrack album to the popular HBO series Six Feet Under. The BBC used the track "Wake Up" on an advertisement for their autumn 2005 season and the tracks "Rebellion (Lies)" and "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)" on adverts in January 2006. On September 9, 2005, the band appeared on the UK/US TV special Fashion Rocks, where David Bowie joined them for "Wake Up". This recording, as well as recordings by the collaboration of Bowie's "Life on Mars" and "Five Years", were made available on the iTunes Music Store in a virtual live EP. The same trip to New York City took them to the Late Show with David Letterman and a concert in Central Park. The Central Park Show had a surprise appearance by Bowie and capped a great touring season for the band. On September 11, 2005, Arcade Fire appeared on the long-running BBC music series Top of the Pops, performing "Rebellion (Lies)" — on what was one of the band's first mainstream UK television appearances. The band also performed to a TV audience in Paris for Canal+, and the show was later screened on UK television's Channel 4. The band has scored two number one songs on MTV2 (UK) NME Chart Show, with "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)" and a three week run with "Wake Up". However, this success followed Rough Trade Records's (the label that distributes Arcade Fire's music in the UK) decision at the last minute not to release "Wake Up" on CD, and only on 7" vinyl. is the 94th day of the year (95th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

During the downtime between Funeral and the beginning of recording sessions for Neon Bible, the band purchased a defunct church in the small Quebec town of Farnham, approximately 70 kilometres (45 miles) outside of Montreal, and spent the early part of 2006 converting it into a recording studio.[14] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 535 pixelsFull resolution (1024 × 685 pixel, file size: 339 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old version. ...

The first track officially released from Neon Bible was "Intervention" in December 2006 on iTunes.

The album was leaked to peer to peer networks on January 26, 2007 and was officially released March 5, 2007 in the UK, and March 6 in North America. Neon Bible premiered at No 1 on the Canadian Albums Chart & The Irish Album Charts and No 2 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 charts & The UK Top 40 Album Chart for the week of March 12, 2007.[18] The album was also No. 1 on the Rock and Indie album charts. The first proper single, "Black Mirror", was announced in January 2007. Displaying echoes of British band Echo and the Bunnymen, "Black Mirror" reached the #1 spot on CBC Radio 3's R3-30 chart for five consecutive weeks, from March 22 to April 19, 2007, and was the first single by any band ever to spend more than two weeks atop that chart.
