Arcade Fire is back with a new single, an upcoming album and a huge North American tour starting this August and keeping the band on the road until the end of the year.
The popular Canadian rock band announced their upcoming fifth studio album, to be titled Everything Now, on Thursday afternoon. The album is set with a July 28 release date, just in time for the start of their also newly announced North American run which starts on Aug. 6, with their headlining set at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Titled the “Infinite Content” Tour, the North American dates follow their previously announced European run of shows, which start this weekend with their set at Primavera Sound over in Spain.
According to Pitchfork, Arcade Fire will be joined on various dates by an impressive mix of support acts including Wolf Parade, Broken Social Scene, Angel Olsen, Phantogram, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Grandmaster Flash.
Everything Now is the band’s first studio effort since their hugely successful 2013 Reflektor double album, which earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album in 2015. The album’s first single, also titled “Everything Now” was released on Wednesday, and can be heard in the video above.
