Arcade Fire have shared the trailer for their first feature length film, The Reflektor Tapes, and it’ll make you wish you could be a part of the band. Surely they wouldn’t notice one more person shaking a maraca or hitting a cow bell in the corner, would they?
The film is getting a limited US release on September 23rd and is produced by music documentary specialists, Pulse Films. Their previous work includes the hit Nick Cave film 20,000 Days on Earth, and Blur’s No Distance Left to Turn. Kahil Joseph, a Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner for his short Until The Quiet Comes, is the director.
The film follows the making of the ambitious album Reflektor, from the first rehearsal sessions in Jamaica through to recording in Montreal, and finally the obligatory worldwide stadium tour. The biggest treat for fans will be the inclusion of a brand new, previously unreleased track.
Pulse say it “is a rare opportunity for fans to delve beneath the surface and get closer to the band themselves.”
In a statement, the band said:
There were parts of the Reflektor tour where I think we, Arcade Fire, came the closest in our careers to putting on stage what we imagined in our heads.
