Meanwhile, Win Butler and Régine Chassagne are opening a Haitian restaurant in Montreal called 'Agrikol'. Chassagne herself has family hailing from the Caribbean island of Haiti, with the band's 2013 album 'Reflektor' partly influenced by the music of the country.

Butler told Canada's The Globe And Mail: "[The restaurant is] more of an art project. The idea is that it's a cultural space. The thing that we were really impressed with at Rhum Corner is that it's this space for Haitian and Caribbean culture and it's really cool and contemporary." Butler added that Agrikol will replicate the "cultural warmth" of Haiti.
