With Arcade Fire’s new album, Reflektor, due for release on October 28, this week’s archive feature looks back to December 2005, when Uncut awards Album Of The Year to Arcade Fire’s debut, Funeral.

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.
