The excitement continues to grow with the Arcade Fire. Yesterday two songs off their double-A-side, limited edition 12” leaked across the Internet. Fans were surprised and stoked to hear featured tracks “The Suburbs” and “Month of May.”

Today Arcade Fire has announced the title of their heavily anticipated third full-length studio album: “The Suburbs.” The album will be available on August 3rd via Merge Records. But you can pre-order “The Suburbs” now on CD and double-LP in the Merge store and receive “Month of May” and “The Suburbs” for download immediately. You’ll also get a FREE poster with your order!

Written, arranged, performed and produced by the Arcade Fire and co-produced by Markus Dravs, “The Suburbs” was recorded around Montreal and New York over the past two years.

I don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to hear the entire album. I wonder what the Arcade Fire has in store for our ears.
