Arcade Fire are back in the studio recording new music for their next album, according to drummer Jeremy Gara. In an interview with Ottawa radio station CKCU, Gara spilled the beans on Arcade Fire's new album:
"We are just working like we always have. We took a couple months off and we've been writing songs. Now we're in the studio pretty much full-time just doing what we do. And we kind of shut the door. We haven't really gone out and done anything in over a year now. We haven't done photos or interviews or anything. We're just working on music and growing beards and living at home a lot and going out to dinner together."
You heard 'im—bellies full and beards full-grown (Regine Chassagne has probably not grown a beard, then again, Gara did say they haven't done photos in a while), Arcade Fire are back at it. And they're aiming for a release at the end of 2013, which would put them at one incredible album every three years since 2004. We aren't even mad that the band told Canada before they told us! Go on with your bad selves, Arcade Fire. Record away. [Rolling Stone]
