Arcade Fire are to appear in their own concert special on US TV later this month.

The band are booked in as musical guests on the season premiere of NBC's iconic comedy show Saturday Night Live on September 28, and straight after the episode ends the same network will broadcast a 30-minute Arcade Fire concert special, Consequence of Sound has confirmed. NBC's Arcade Fire special will celebrate the release of the band's forthcoming album 'Reflektor' but at present no further details about the show are known.

'Reflektor', the band's fourth album, is set for release on October 28. Frontman Win Butler recently described the album, which is a double, as a "mash-up of Studio 54 and Haitian voodoo".

Pre-orders for the 'Reflektor' double album have now opened up at Arcadefire.com, with the website stating that early orders will come with first access to ticket sales for special shows as well as the band's forthcoming world tour.

The band unveiled the video for the album's lead single, also called 'Reflektor', last week (September 9). The black and white clip, directed by Anton Corbijn, features the band wearing oversized papier-mâché heads and playing the track in the back of a truck which is being driven by band members Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. In addition, the almost eight-minute long video features a man wearing a suit made entirely out of mirrors and a coffin covered totally in mirror tiles, as well a huge mirror ball. Watch it below.
