Arcade Fire released their sixth studio album, WE, on Friday (May 6th). The project includes the singles “The Lightning I, II” and “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid),” both of which they performed during their career fifth turn as musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Saturday (May 7th).
The band will support WE with a recently-announced fall world tour which opens in Dublin, Ireland on August 30th. The North American leg of the WE tour — featuring very special guest Beck playing a nightly acoustic set — will kick off October 28th in Washington D.C.
Tickets for all dates will be on sale to the public beginning on Friday (May 13th) at 10 a.m. local time. Arcade Fire has partnered with PLUS1 (http://www.plus1.org) so that $1 per ticket goes to KANPE (http://www.kanpe.org), and their work bringing support to the most vulnerable communities in Haiti.
