Arcade Fire are set to appear on satirical US news show The Colbert Report next week.

The band will appear on the Monday night (October 21) episode of the programme, which is broadcast on the Comedy Central channel in North America. Host Stephen Colbert will interview the band, who will also perform under the name The Reflektors. The band have been using the pseudonym whilst promoting their forthcoming new album, 'Reflektor', which will be released on October 29.

Arcade Fire recently issued a video teasing the new track 'Afterlife'. The two-minute, 21 second video features footage shot in Haiti and the band's now-familiar papier macher masks. The band have also released a 30-second clip of another album track, 'Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice)'.

The band posted the lyrics to songs 'We Exist', 'Here Comes The Night Time', 'Normal Person' and 'Afterlife' to their Facebook page earlier this week. All four songs were performed by the band during their recent NBC concert special Here Comes the Night Time.

The band are confirmed to perform at the annual Bridge School Charity show alongside Queens Of The Stone Age, Tom Waits and My Morning Jacket on October 26/27. Arcade Fire fansite Arcade Fire Tube also reports that the band will play an intimate live date in Miami next week at the Little Haiti Cultural Centre. These shows come in addition to the pair of New York shows the band are playing tomorrow (October 18) and on Saturday (October 19), at 229 Meserole in Brooklyn.

Arcade Fire will release their new album 'Reflektor' on October 29. Read NME's track by track review of the album.
