Canadian indie rock gods Arcade Fire have announced the release of a DVD which is part documentary and part live performance. Taking it's name from the Neon Bible's track Miroir Noir, the dvd follows the band through the making and touring of their 2007 album Neon Bible, documenting the band at their Montreal studio, the making of promotional videos, 15 full length live performance tracks and short films made on the road. Miroir Noir is directed by Arcade Fire friend and collaborator Vincent Morisset, responsible for the interactive video for Neon Bible and Arcade Fire homepage design.
Anyone who has ever been to an Arcade Fire gig knows they're one of the most spectacular live bands our generation is likely to see. Of course no live DVD is ever going to fully recreate the magic, but this could just be a little slice of history. Miroir Noir will be released in Ireland on April 3rd.
