All #Funeral15 content from the band:
Sep 12: Remastered “Rebellion (Lies) video.
“The ‘Rebellion’ video is the first video we made as a band, filmed in the months before the release of ‘Funeral’. Our friend Josh Deu, who used to play in Arcade Fire, did the visual effects on the video. Somehow along the way the wrong version got uploaded and the official video only existed in a degraded form. We are happy that he was able to redo the hand drawn effects for this restoration. Enjoy the band as the babies we were!” -Win Butler [NME]
The band has put up Funeral merch on their online store. This tee just one of the new items.
Sep 14: Happy birthday Funeral!
Sep 16: Behind the scenes video during the Funeral era
Anton Corbijn’s unseen portraits of Arcade Fire. The unseen-ness of these are very debatable, but here they are anyway.
La Sala Rossa. This show was after we recorded the album but before released. We played a sold out show in Toronto & then came back to Montreal & there was a line around the block. It was the 1st time we played a show in Montreal that not everyone could get into. #Funeral15 pic.twitter.com/IiSR90DlTl— Arcade Fire (@arcadefire) September 21, 2019
This was our first time in New York, we went all the way down to play at @pianosnyc for an A&R guy. I think there were more people on stage than in the audience. @DanBoeckner from @WolfParade played with us. ❤︎ #Funeral15 pic.twitter.com/dtw9psIGCm— Arcade Fire (@arcadefire) September 21, 2019
