Arcade Fire continues to build buzz about its new album, Reflektor. After treating costumed crowds in Brooklyn to a couple of shows and appearing on The Colbert Report (as The Reflektors in each case), the band will return to its actual name for an NPR Music "First Listen Live" performance at LA's Capitol Studios — and you'll be able to hear it live on FUV and The Alternate Side. It all starts Monday, October 28th at 10pm.
We've been told that the show will feature highlights from Reflektor and a few older songs, but with this band, clearly the unexpected is expected. That's not the only Arcade Fire news: Reflektor is officially out on October 29th, but after it was leaked today, the band released its own version in the form of a full-album lyric video. (Unfortunately the video is currently unavailable).
Update [10/28]: Missed the show? Listen anytime in the FUV Vault.
