ARCADE FIRE have debuted a series of never-before-heard new songs at a secret show in their native land of Canada.

Among the most beloved alt-rock bands of the 21st century, news of an forthcoming record from the group have surfaced over the last year or so and intensified upon the release of the Mavis Staples-assisted ‘I Give You Power’ in January.

Fourth months on from their first outing since 2013’s double LP Reflektor, a recent low-key gig in their hometown of Montreal was reportedly the sight of the band road-testing a series of new tracks.

According to the Montreal Gazette, the never before aired music was performed in front of an intimate crowd of 50 people and they were required to check their phones in order to prevent unauthorised footage emerging online.

Whilst their new album is yet to be formally confirmed, we’ll be sure to keep you updated with any and all developments.
