Arcade Fire Working "Full Time" On New Album

Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara has given an update on the progress of the band's new album.

Gara told Canadian radio station that for the follow-up to 2010's 'The Suburbs' they had to leave their old church based studio, as the roof collapsed. However, they now have a new space where they are working 'full-time'. 

"Now we’re in the studio pretty much full time just doing what we do and we kind of shut the door," Gara told.

"We haven’t really gone out and done anything in over a year now. We haven’t done photos or interviews or anything. We’re just working on music and growing beards and living at home a lot and going out to dinner together."

"We are under no pressure from record labels or management or whatever to do anything on any sort of schedule. We’re just working. We have no deadlines. It’s kind of coming along." He added.

We'll keep you updated.
