Neon Neon, the band helmed by Super Furry Animals singer Gruff Rhys and producer Boom Bip, have confirmed details of their second album.

Church where Arcade Fire recorded Neon Bible and The Suburbs listed for sale

The church in which Arcade Fire recorded two of their studio albums has been listed for sale, according to reports. The band recorded their 2007 LP Neon Bible and 2010 record The Suburbs at the building in Farnham, Quebec in Canada but, according to Pitchfork, were forced to leave the church behind after the roof collapsed. With the group now working on their fourth studio album in a new location, they posted an advertisement for the building on their Twitter account.
