i may be a bit slow on this band (very) but only recently released how amazing they are. Have had the album for qutie a while and loved it, just come home from uni for xmas and that the only cd i had on me and its amazing.

Watched them live on MTV2 recenlty and they just blew me away.

p.s another band that is hot at the moment is the rifles has any one else heard of them??

I was really late to this party also. Just bought the album a month or so ago. Surprised I liked them so much because I usually don't like that style very much. They're just so much better than I expected, even after having seen a great performance on Letterman. There's probably an Arcade Fire thread here that's a year old.

so the new album will call " Neon Bible" !

first new track !

intervention

Intervention, new version

Keys taken back I throw
The people they all grow
And choose what they want written on their stone
All quiet and alone

You can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
I know I want to fight I want to die
Just tell me what to say

Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone

There's something in the air
The people they all sit and stare
And tell me what they point to tell me where
And tell me…

Who's gonna throw the very first stone?
Whose gonna re-set the bone?
Sitting with his head in a sling
I hear the soldier sing

Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone

Sunshine light
Someone teach me how to fly
And onto something for wish I would die, but I just don't know what
Though I can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
And make it all concisely clear
You know I'm gonna fade

Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope

Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone
Hear the soldiers groan

I really love the new song Intervention.

Funeral is my favourite album of all time, so I look forward to many happy times listening to Neon Bible :)

Really? I thought when you asked when it was being released you meant "When will this be available for download on oink or soulseek?"

:wacko:

edit: I really thought it was a simple question, a question that someone here might know the answer to. Maybe there are no simple questions in the Little Room. sigh...

I really like the song....it sounds equally awesome acoustic or with the huge organ, which is hard to do.

I think it's actually kind of old. At least it sounds similar to a song they played in like February.

well the first version that's posted there is from "Morning Becomes Eclectic" in January.. so yes, it's an old song.. and also an outstanding song

hopefully all the songs will be better than "Cold Wind".. that song was boring..
