The Arcade Fire是来自加拿大蒙特利尔的一支独立摇滚乐队，于2004年推出第一张专辑《Funeral》。他们的音乐风格有Talking Heads，Joy Division以及其他一些乐队的影子。The Arcade Fire善于用吉他，手风琴，小提琴等很多乐器一起制造旋转并跳跃的声音阵列。他们的音乐，能让你感受到在白色雪地上，一个人象雪一样安静的并不抱什么希望的呼喊。The Arcade Fire的乐队里有一对夫妻，还有一对亲兄弟。
在录制这唱片期间，Chassagne的祖母、Butler的祖父和另一位成员的姨姨相继离世，因此说唱片被不安所笼罩，并没有半点夸张。碟内有多首命名为《Neighborhood》的歌曲，似是诉说某幻想中的邻居的故事。例如《Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)》表面看是一首纯洁的情歌，但当歌者那率真的爱情观与其父母们失败的婚姻并列，却令爱情埋藏著一丝危机；《Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)》中唱到《what’s the plan? / is it a dream? / is it a lie? / I think I’ll let you decide》，勾划出成长途上的怅惘。
2005年9月发行现场专辑《Live EP (Live at Fashion Rocks)》。
2015年发行单曲《Get Right / Crucified Again》。
2016年6月17日，成员Butler主持Reddit AMA，他透露乐队正在筹备新专辑的录制。7月19日，成员Tim Kingsbury透露第五张新专辑将会在2017年发行。

Founded in 2001 by friends and classmates Win Butler and Josh Deu, the band came to prominence in 2004 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Funeral’.

In 2013, Arcade Fire released their fourth album, ‘Reflektor’, and scored the feature film ‘Her’, for which band members William Butler and Owen Pallett were nominated in the Best Original Score category at the 86th Academy Awards. All four of their studio albums have received nominations for the Best Alternative Music Album Grammy; the band's work has also been named three times as a shortlist nominee for the Polaris Music Prize: in 2007 for ‘Neon Bible’, in 2011 for The Suburbs and in 2014 for’ Reflektor’, winning the award for ‘The Suburbs’.
