ARCADE FIRE PRESENTS “MONEY + LOVE”

ARCADE FIRE PRESENTS

“MONEY + LOVE”

A FILM BY DAVID WILSON

STARRING ARCADE FIRE & TONI COLLETTE

NEW TEASER LIVE NOW AT https://youtu.be/jdQXK2kfWek

Everything Now is proud to present a more in depth advance look at “Money + Love,” a double video directed by David Wilson, written by David Wilson and Arcade Fire, and starring Arcade Fire and Toni Collette.

“Money + Love” will be released March 15. The new teaser is now live at https://youtu.be/jdQXK2kfWek.

“Money + Love” opens in the aftermath of Arcade Fire’s 360-degree deal with global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now, and features a narrative that unfolds over the course of full performances of “Put Your Money on Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love” from the GRAMMY-nominated global #1 album Everything Now (Sonovox/Columbia).

Win Butler commented on the ambitious scope of the two-song short film, “The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since Reflektor and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time”.

Director/co-writer David Wilson added, “The ambition and scale of the piece was huge from the outset. I adore working with Arcade Fire – reacting to their vision and scale is a beautiful thing to creatively respond to. The belief and trust in me from the band made this one of the best experiences of my career. It’s an as-close-to-perfect collaboration that I can think of with me and Win hitting emails backwards and forwards continually over the formation of the script. The connection, communication and enthusiasm from the band on the multiple shoot days led to an extremely tight bond. I’m super excited for this to be out in the world.”

Toni Collette said of her role, “Arcade Fire is on of my all time favorite bands. I was blown away when they asked me to be part of their video. It was a total pleasure acting with them and an even greater pleasure getting to know them. They continue to inspire and I continue to admire. I mean, who gets to do that? I am so lucky!”

Having closed out 2017 with a triumphant run through Latin America, Arcade Fire resumes its Infinite Content Tour on March 1, when the band headlines the Okeechobee Festival in Okeechobee, Florida. The Infinite Content Tour will see Arcade Fire headlining sold out dates across the UK and Europe from April 6at the 3Arena in Dublin through June 18 at the Stadthalle in Vienna. Following that, Arcade Fire will return to the States for a trio of festival headlines: Summerfest’s July 8closer (the band’s  first Milwaukee appearance in 14 years), July 14 at Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham AL, and July 15 at Forecastle in Louisville KY.

Preservation Hall Horns, RAM, and Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire Release Theme Song To Commemorate Inaugural Krewe du Kanaval

Preservation Hall Horns, RAM, and Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire
Release Theme Song To Commemorate Inaugural Krewe du Kanaval

“Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!)” Available Now at www.kanaval.org

Proceeds To Be Donated to the Preservation Hall Foundation & KANPE

In anticipation of the inaugural Krewe du Kanaval taking place Tuesday, February 6, 2018 in New Orleans, the Preservation Hall Horns, RAM and Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire have collaborated on “Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!),” a Krewe du Kanaval theme, released today at www.kanaval.org.

“Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!),” recorded in New Orleans last week, is an embodiment of the spirit of Krewe du Kanaval: a new Mardi Gras Krewe, mobile music event and celebration of Haiti and the diaspora of cultures that have enriched New Orleans’ identity and arts for hundreds of years.

The music of “Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!)” was written by Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, with lyrics by Win Butler, Regine Chassagne, and Richard Morse. The song was produced by Win Butler, Regine Chassagne, and Eric Heigle, and mixed by Craig Silvey with Win Butler and Eric Heigle.

The inaugural Krewe du Kanaval will run from 12 noon through to the late evening, consisting of a parade/procession through the French Quarter and Treme, a free afternoon festival in Armstrong Park and a ticketed Kanaval Ball at the iconic club One Eyed Jacks. Much like the theme song, the Krewe itself is a joint effort between Preservation Hall, Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire and Haitian friends. It aims to be a welcome and necessary annual addition to New Orleans’ Mardi Gras traditions and will raise funds to benefit the Preservation Hall Foundation and KANPE – two not-for-profit organizations which serve important unmet social and cultural needs in New Orleans and Haiti.

Confirmed talent includes members of Arcade Fire including singers Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, the world famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band, DJ Nickodemus, DJ Cosmo Gonik, Paul Beaubrun and special guests from Haiti including RAM.

EVERYTHING NOW Presents

ARCADE FIRE “Put Your Money on Me” & “Creature Comfort” 12” Singles Now Available For Pre-Order

Featuring A-Sides From The GRAMMY-Nominated Album EVERYTHING NOW & Exclusive Non-LP B-Sides

Pre-orders are open as of today for two new Arcade Fire 12” vinyl singles: “Put Your Money on Me” featuring the exclusive B-side “Put Your Money on Me (Windows 98 v.1.0),” and “Creature Comfort” also backed with an exclusive non-LP B-side “Comfort My Sleng Teng (Geoff Barrow Mix).”

Both singles will be released January 19, 2018 and feature A-Sides from the band’s global #1 album Everything Now (Sonovox/Columbia), which has been nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Alternative Album category.

Arcade Fire recently wrapped up the North American leg of its Infinite Content Tour with a November 3-4 two-night stand at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto that had the Toronto Star describing the band as “attacking every note and every grand pronouncement as if its very collective life depended on it. Arcade Fire is as good as it’s ever been right now. Period.” NOW magazine added “They didn’t crowd the stage – they filled it… Their exuberance hasn’t worn off… as this show reaffirmed, they’re going to be an arena band for a long while yet.” Critical response similarly matched crowd elation at every date of the Infinite Content North American trek, with highlights including:

“This band seriously knows what they’re doing onstage… Arcade Fire gigs are transformative, again and again. You should see them wherever you have a chance to.”—Stereogum

“Irony, sincerity, whatever—it all sounds amazing… an immediate reminder of how they’re still one of the best bands in the world.”—The Independent

“A celebration of the best working rock band in the world.”—New York Daily News

“It’s a tricky thing, of course, to make 17,000 people feel like you see them in the same way you once reached out to touch 500, but in a show that spread 23 songs over two hours of passionate performance the group managed to do just that. Part of that came through the creative production… but the strongest ties between stage and stands remain the pure power of Arcade Fire’s songs, the music and lyrics pulling everyone into a shared communion of the human spirit that lives within these notes and words.” – OC Register

“Not just anthemic but transcendent… there’s no better way to experience that effect than on stage.”– Chicago Tribune

“A joyous affair… unflagging energy… makes their live presentation one of the most thrilling you’ll find.”—Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Astonishing creativity and nonpareil production made the show an uninterrupted marvel… the concert proved that Arcade Fire remains an imposing contender for the title of the world’s best rock band.”—Kansas City Star

“Glorified the virtue of being present, awake, and alive… the band performed as if they were fighting for the very survival of indie rock… there was a unifying sense of optimism at the heart of theses songs and this performance.”—City Pages

“By the end of the night, the crowd had danced, cheered and, in some cases, cried itself to the point of exhaustion”—Las Vegas Weekly

The Infinite Content Tour currently runs through April 28, 2018 at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. For further information, see the itinerary below or go to arcadefire.com.

#InfiniteInfiniteContent #DressCodeGate CONTESTS LIVE NOW

Arcade Fire, whose fifth album Everything Now will be released this Friday, July 28, are currently running two Twitter contests for fans.

The first, called Infinite Infinite Content, challenges fans to create their own version of the song “Infinite Content” using only musical scores and MIDI files that the band has provided. That competition ends at 11:59 eastern time on July 27.

The second, inspired by the negative reaction to a fictional dress code that the band never insisted on for tomorrow’s intimate show in Brooklyn, is called #Dresscodegate. The band is asking fans to tweet a photo of themselves in their least hip, least trendy outfit; winners will have access to special VIP areas at the show, and they’ll be gifted a bunch of Everything Now swag.
