Arcade Fire (Canada)

This week featuring Canada

ARCADE FIRE

Arcade Fire are probably one of the biggest Canadian imports today.  They are a seven piece band formed in 2001 in Montreal.  Arcade Fire came to prominence with the release of their debut album “Funeral” in 2004 to critical acclaim.  “Neon Bible” released in 2007 and had huge success on the charts.  2010 saw the released of the bands third album “The Suburbs”.  In 2011 Arcade Fire won Album of the Year at The Grammy Awards and they won Best International Album and Best International Group at the 2011 BRIT Awards.  The band uses a vast array of musical instruments with the multi-instrumentalist band switching duties throughout a show, this makes for a powerful impact of sound.
