Posting to Sept 9 to their official Facebook page, the Canuck indie rockers announced that their soon-to-be released fourth studio album 'Reflektor' is now available for preorder at iTunes and the official Arcade Fire webstore.
Clicking on Arcade Fire webstore link to the presale, which went live last night, reveals for the first time that 'Reflektor" will be a double album, as well as the unveiling of the official album artwork (shown) and the first news of a world tour.
Presale information at the Arcade Fire webstore states: "All Reflektor pre-orders included first access to ticket onsale for special shows and the forthcoming world tour."
In July, the Grammy winning Montreal natives announced they will head to Australia in January 2014 as part of Big Day Out touring festival, but no other dates have been announced.
The band performed live only sporadically in 2013, hitting the stage most recently under their pseudonym "The Reflektors" at a show last night at Montreal's Salsathèque club to launch the album's lead-off single.
The "Reflektor" album, which will be available in double -vinyl, 2-CD and MP3 formats, will hit shelves on Oct. 29.
