Arcade Fire, arguably the finest ever Canadian export, have announced the release of ‘Ready to Start’, the second single to be taken from their highly revered album ‘The Suburbs’. Released on 11th October (via Sonovox), ‘Ready to Start’ is yet another highly listenable offering from a band that are carving a reputation as one of the most reliable sources of high-quality music around. ‘The Suburbs’ hit top spot in the UK and US and firmly established them as one of the world’s biggest bands. Their last single – ‘The Wilderness Downtown’ – saw the band reach new heights, as the accompanying music video received over 25 million hits worldwide. It seems nothing can stop this incredible 7-piece ensemble.

Furthermore, the band have announced a short UK tour in December 2010, with dates in London, Dublin, Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff and Glasgow. For more information visit
