Emerging from Montreal, Canada in the early 2000s, Arcade Fire quickly earned a reputation for transcendent live shows that brought arena-size ambition to stages of all sizes. By the close of the tour supporting its 2004 debut album Funeral — widely hailed as one of the best and most important albums of the 2000s — Arcade Fire’s live experience was already raising thousands of voices in ecstatic unison nightly—while the band found itself sharing stages with the likes of U2 and David Bowie.

Titled in tribute to the memories of family members, Funeral’s cathartic confrontation of tragedy and life-affirming celebration of love, hope and band members’ Haitian roots has only grown in stature over the years. The album has been named the #1 album of the ‘00s by Rolling Stone, and has topped Best of the Decade lists around the world including NME, Q, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Mojo, Spin, Consequence, Paste and more. Subsequent Arcade Fire albums Neon Bible, The Suburbs, Reflektor and Everything Now have earned the band three #1 albums worldwide, nine GRAMMY nominations (including a 2011 Album of the Year win for The Suburbs), four Juno awards (including three for Album of the Year), a BRIT Best International Album award, as well as an Academy Award nomination for the original score to the feature film HER.

WE, the sixth Arcade Fire album was released May 6, 2022. Produced by Nigel Godrich, Win & Régine, WE is a 40 minute epic as much about the forces that threaten to pull us away from the people we love, as it is inspired by the urgent need to overcome them.
