Arcade Fire's Win Butler has admitted that it is hard work writing, recording and touring as part of the band.

In a new interview with Q Magazine, the band have also promised to deliver a "great show" when they headline London's Hyde Park on Thursday (June 30).

Asked about how seriously Arcade Fire take recording and touring, Butler replied: "Every record, there's been some point where we've looked at each other and gone, 'What are we doing? This is so hard'. Because it is. It's just hard. Making anything properly is really hard."

The frontman also spoke about what fans can expect from their performance at Hyde Park, Win Butler replied: "It should be a great show. We're just going to do what Arcade Fire do best. Just get out there and play some rock n'roll."

The Vaccines: 16:40 - 17:10
