You Won’t Have to Wait Long for the New Arcade Fire Album

Just about two months, actually: A day after two new songs leaked, the band has announced that their third studio album, The Suburbs, will be out August 2. Co-produced by Markus Dravs and recorded in Montreal and New York, it's Arcade Fire's first new release since 2007's Neon Bible. The only thing left to figure out: Is the backlash coming now, or will the fourth album be the one everyone decides to hate? [NME]
