TORONTO - After reaching international success with the Grammy-winning "The Suburbs," Arcade Fire is blazing back with a new album scheduled for an Oct. 29 release.
The Montreal-based indie rockers announced the news on Twitter in response to a random fan, also tweeting a digitally edited image of the band.
Arcade Fire's third album, "The Suburbs," topped charts in the U.S., Canada and around the world en route to double-platinum sales here.
It also shocked many by winning the Grammy Award for album of the year in 2011, as well as a host of other recognitions including the Polaris Prize for best Canadian album of the year.
There has been little news about the hotly anticipated follow-up.
However, in an interview with Rolling Stone, former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy says the group recorded with him at DFA Records' studio in March.
"I think it's going to be a really great record, actually," said Murphy in the May interview.
