Following the universally acclaimed reception to singles “The Lightning I, II” and “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid),” Arcade Fire’s “excellent sixth album” (The New Yorker) WE is out now in its entirety via Columbia Records.
WE’s release coincides with the announcement of Arcade Fire’s autumn world tour. In the wake of surprise underplays including New Orleans’ Toulouse Theatre, New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Coachella’s Mojave Tent, and a triumphant visit to the UK with the reopening of iconic London venue KOKO, the WE world tour will see the return of the full production Arcade Fire “must-see live act” (Variety) experience to global stages, launching in Dublin on Tuesday, 30th August and running through 1st December in Toronto. The UK leg of the WE tour – featuring special guest Feist – will kick off in Birmingham on 2nd September ahead of shows in Manchester, Glasgow and London’s O2 Arena. North America will be treated to very special guest Beck playing a nightly acoustic set, starting 28th October in Washington D.C.
Tickets for all tour dates are on sale now. Arcade Fire has partnered with PLUS1 (http://www.plus1.org) so that $1/£1/€1 per ticket goes to KANPE (http://www.kanpe.org), and their work bringing support to the most vulnerable communities in Haiti.
