Arcade Fire in iTunes Mishap; Band Announces NY Gigs

Arcade By now, the word is out that the Arcade Fire's extremely anticipated next album will be titled Neon Bible and is expected some time in early spring. The band posted the the first single, "Intervention," to iTunes, but there was some confusion. Lead singer and band mastermind Win Butler put a note up in his section of the band's website stating that "Intervetion" was to be posted as a charity single on Dec. 28 with proceeds going to benefit Partners in Health. Unfortunately, someone from the band's record label, Merge, posted the wrong song ("Black Wave/Bad Vibrations") two days early and the song leaked onto the web. The band is asking that people make a donation to PIH since many have gotten the song for free.

I just purchased what is labeled as "Intervention" from iTunes, but based on this information, I'm not sure if I'm listening to the correct song. After calling 1-866-NEON BIBLE x 7777, I am somewhat confident that the song I got is "Black Wave." Either way, if both songs are indicative of what's forthcoming from these guys, the album is going to once again put the Arcade Fire at the top.

Go to iTunes and buy it yourself.

The band also recently announced they're going to take up a five-night residency at New York's Judson Memorial Church Feb. 13-17. Tickets for those shows go on sale Jan. 5 at 9 am EST. They're also playing London's St. John's Church Jan. 29-31 and then Porchester Hall Feb 1-2.
