The film will hit cinemas worldwide on September 24
Arcade Fire are set to release a feature-length film, titled The Reflektor Tapes, in September.
The project, directed by Kahlil Joseph (who has worked with Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar in the past), follows the band as they write, record and tour in support of latest album ‘Reflektor’. The Reflektor Tapes will hit cinemas worldwide on September 24.
In the new trailer, Win Butler of the band compares music to “being led by a spirit” while Régine Chassagne says that Arcade Fire’s “inclination is to tell stories”. The trailer is filled with live clips from the band’s ‘Reflektor’ world tour, including arena gigs and smaller dates in the US and Haiti.
The film has been described in a press release as “a unique cinematic experience, meeting at the crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history”. It will feature the group touring around the world and visiting the Caribbean country of Haiti.
A teaser and a music video for album track ‘Porno’ were revealed last month (July).
Watch the new trailer below:
Meanwhile, Arcade Fire husband-and-wife duo Win Butler and Régine Chassagne are opening a Haitian restaurant in Montreal called Agrikol. Chassagne herself has family from Haiti.
Butler recently told Canada’s The Globe And Mail: “[The restaurant is] more of an art project. The idea is that it’s a cultural space.” Butler added that Agrikol will replicate the “cultural warmth” of Haiti.
