Jack's Song Of The Day: Arcade Fire

arcadefire Jack's Song Of The Day: Arcade Fire

When we say Canadian indie rock band, do you think of an orchestra?

If not, you should!  Because [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Arcade Fire[/lastfm] has combined the two and they sound pretty flippin’ sweet!

Now the band is not a full orchestra but includes: Win Butler (vocals, guitar, piano), Régine Chassagne (vocals, accordion, keyboards, hurdy gurdy, drums), Richard Reed Parry (bass, guitar), William Butler (keyboards, guitar), Tim Kingsbury (bass), Sarah Neufeld (violin), and Jeremy Gara (drums).

They formed around the married couple of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne around 2003 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

According to Rolling Stone, their name is derived from a story someone told front man, Win Butler, about a fire in an arcade!  Simple enough!

The band has put out three studio albums: Funeral (2004); Neon Bible (2007) and The Suburbs (2010).

The Suburbs was released this past August!  ‘Modern Man’ is the fourth single off the record…
