If you're an Irish Arcade Fire fan who's eager to hear their new material live before anyone else, there's good news.

The Canadian indie-rock band will play the first date of their global tour in Dublin later this year.

Win Butler and co. released their sixth album 'We' on Friday and the reviews have been largely positive across the board, with most claiming that it's a return to form for the Montreal natives.

The band - who were the musical guests on SNL at the weekend - have had a loyal following in Ireland since their first gig here at Electric Picnic in 2005 on their 'Funeral' tour.

They'll play Dublin's 3Arena on Tuesday, August 30th. And there's even better news: support on all of their European and UK tour dates will be Feist.

Tickets are on sale this Friday, May 13th at 10am from usual outlets.
