on May 16, 2014, 9:15am

Arcade Fire have unveiled their new video “We Exist”, which serves as the latest single off the band’s fourth studio album, Reflektor.

Filmed primarily during the band’s set at Coachella weekend two, the clip features Spider-Man himself, Andrew Garfield, playing the role of a gay man struggling with his identity. It’s touching narrative is directly inspired by the song itself, which is about a son coming out to his father. Win Butler had introduced their performance of the track by saying, “The right to marry anyone you want is a human rights issue.”
