Unknown-2

As if there wasn't enough hype around Arcade Fire already, the band recently announced they will be playing a 30-minute NBC special.  Arcade Fire will be joining former SNL star Tina Fey on the premiere of the show's 39th season on September 28th.  But that's not all!

In honor of their upcoming album, Reflektor, Arcade Fire will be hosting a 30-minute special that will immediately follow their SNL performance.  The news was fist reported by Consequence of Sound.  NBC has only confirmed the news, no other details regarding the special have been released.  It's expected that Arcade Fire will highlight a lot of material from Reflektor.

Arcade Fire have promoted Reflektor in a rather unique manner.  They released their album date via Twitter, released an interactive music video and played a secret show in costume.  So if you are a fan of Arcade Fire and had plans on Sep. 28, break them because their NBC special is certainly not one to miss!

Also! Look for Arcade Fire's fourth studio album, Reflektor, is due out October 29.
