It is hard to believe that indie-rock band Arcade Fire has been active for nearly a decade and a half, perhaps due to its consistently fresh sound and ever-evolving style. While the Montreal-bred six-piece outgrew its indie status long ago (as demonstrated by collaborations with the likes of David Bowie, Bono, and Neil Young), Arcade Fire retains its alternative and experimental mentality. Indeed, the band’s debonair aesthetic elevates its music into a high art defined by an all-encompassing sense of positivity complemented with a dash of reality-born tribulation.
This year, purchase Arcade Fire tickets to see a group that is uplifting, orchestral, and immensely appreciative of everything that music stands for.

While the group received critical adoration for 2004’s anthemic debut Funeral (2004) and 2008’s political Neon Bible, it was not until 2010’s The Suburbs that Arcade Fire was cemented as one of the most distinctive voices in rock.
In fact, one moment in particular stands out as the turning point in Arcade Fire’s post-Suburbs career. At the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in February 2011, the world was left in shock as Arcade Fire claimed the award for Album of the Year, besting powerful contenders such as Eminem, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry in the process. It was a result that nobody could have anticipated, and even award presenter Barbra Streisand was noticeably surprised by the win. As the members of the band walked onto the stage of Los Angeles’ Staples Centre to accept their prize, Arcade Fire was transformed into an international sensation.
The Grammy win may have been unpredictable, but it was also absolutely deserved. The Suburbs was, in every sense of the word, a masterpiece. The album was a bundle of contradictions; it was both hopeful and apocalyptic, intimate and expository, despair-laden and overwhelmingly beautiful. As such, Arcade Fire not only earned its Grammy Award, it also deserved its Brit Award for Best International Album, Juno Award for Album of the Year, and prestigious Polaris Music Prize.
Now, Arcade Fire is back with its highly-anticipated fifth studio effort Everything Now. Released on July 28, Everything Now is the follow-up to 2013’s rara-tinged Reflektor. If the title track is any indication, the band will be embracing exciting new influences, including disco hints and ABBA-era pop inclinations. Still, despite the welcomed presence of these new influences, the group has retained its penchant for euphoric jingles and heartbreakingly sincere lyrics.
Arcade Fire is a force to be reckoned with in concert, partly due to its multi-instrumentalist members and their proficiency at playing the violin, cello, xylophone, keyboard, synthesizer, accordion, mandolin, and harp.
