In a recent interview with Red Bull Poland, Arcade Fire drummer Jerry Gara revealed that the band has completed the recording of their follow-up album to 2013’s Reflektor. However, the timeline for the release is not something that Gara could elaborate on, since the final mix is still being worked on:
“The album should come out this year. At this stage we are still mixing and trying to decide which songs will end up on the record, because we’ve recorded more than we need. But we’re almost finished. I don’t know when it’ll come out, I hope soon. I know we’re a popular band, but we always stick to the same rule; we record until we feel that the music is ready.”
Gara did reveal the the group may be preparing for a massive two-year tour, “for obvious reasons [Arcade Fire] is a very important part of my plans, and a quite mysterious one. I don’t know where we’re going to play, I don’t know when we start, or when we finish. From my perspective, it looks like Arcade Fire starts in April and finish around April 2019.”
This is certainly news that should excite fans of the Canadian rockers. The group will also release The Reflektor Tapes / Live at Earls Court documentary DVD on January 27th.
