All the signs point in the right direction. First, last November Arcade Fire were announced as headliners for the Isle Of Wight Festival in the UK. Then, last month, Arcade Fire released a new single titled ‘I Give You Power’. The song was their first new music in more than three years. Then came the announcements of the summer festival appearances across Europe.

Now, Arcade Fire have announced an official European tour in, with a mix of festival and standalone shows, their first tour since touring behind their last album Reflektor in 2014. Of course, with a spate of new shows and new music, it’s only a matter of time before they release a new album.

Arcade Fire’s European tour kicks off with their appearance at Primavera Sound in Barcelona at the beginning of June and wraps in Florence, Italy in mid-July.
