An intrepid Arcade Fire
fan caught a curious banner on their website
redesign... a few people got the scoop before it was stripped. It read "Arcade Fire Presents: "The Suburbs". Let's speculate!
As King Pitchfork and others have observed
, this could be referencing a number of things. It could be the title of their next album, rumored for a 2010 release. It could be referring to the movie they are working on with Spike Jonze. They could just be messin' around! You know those Arcade Fires. Always be joking.*
Their summer tour, as the King notes, means we will be hearing about this soon enough. -joe
