Developments over at Arcade Fire.com.
Could be the title of the new album, could be a new song, could be the title of the short film they've been working on with Spike Jonze. But something is definitely called "The Suburbs" and Arcade Fire are presenting it. First they had a banner up there that said "Arcade Fire presents 'The Suburbs'". Now it only says "Arcade Fire presents", but if you check out the source code you'll still find this post's title in the header.
Stay tuned. This post will be updated with more news as/if it happens.
"The Suburbs" has now been removed from the source code as well.
Previously been reported the working title for the Spike Jonze and Arcade Fire short film was "Scenes from the Suburb". However, I'm now hearing people in the know claiming the official name of the shooting down in Austin, TX was "The Suburbs". So I'm starting to lean more and more towards The Suburbs is referring to that. I think it's too close after the shooting finished to expect the full thing right now, but a trailer or something like it might perhaps be in line. I really hope the new website launches soon.
