As Arcade Fire Tube points out, Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara recently appeared on Ottawa radio station CKCU 93.1 FM, where he provided an update on the status of the band’s next album. Gara said the band is recording “pretty much full time” in their new studio space, though they’re not that far into the process. “We’re under no pressure to do anything under any sort of schedule.”
Gara didn’t want to make any promises when it came to a possible release date, but said the “goal is to work through Christmas, get something finished in the Spring,” adding, “later next year if I can ballpark [a release date].”
Gara also discussed how he came to be a member of the band and offered a few interesting anecdotes, specifically how they spend their money. Listen to the full clip below.
