In a surprise move, Arcade Fire took to Twitter to announce details of their new album.

The news broke when the band responded to a tweet from a fan who said, "You're my favorite." Their response? "Thanks. Our new album will be out October 29th." They also revealed a new picture, featuring the Montreal Biosphere, which caught fire on May 20th, 1976.

The follow-up to The Suburbs was recorded in multiple locations throughout last year, and featured a brief stint with James Murphy at his DFA studio in New York. A new single is expected on September 9th.
