After spilling the beans on the release of their new James Murphy-produced album (it's out October 29, by the way), Arcade Fire have been confirmed for their first public performances since they were touring for The Suburbs. The band will be co-headlining Australia and New Zealand's Big Day Out, which tours the two countries for a couple of weeks between January 19 and February 2. AF share top billing status with 90s heroes Pearl Jam and Blur. We, however, fully expect Arcade Fire to return to North America far before January 2014, so stay tuned.
Check out the full lineup for Big Day Out 2014 - it's quite impressive.
