The Arcade Fire spent most of 2006 holed up in a small church in a small town outside of Montreal They were recording their second album NEON BIBLE It was a slow year mostly The couple years before that had been rather hectic Funeral their first album was released in September of 2004 Reviews were insanely positive from local Montreal press to New York Times feature articles Shows too were selling out In 2004 the Arcade Fire were playing small venues packed to the gills with 100 maybe 200 people After Funeral came out the size of the shows slowly crept up By the end of 2005 the Arcade Fire were playing largish venues packed to the gills with thousands of people in shows that had sold out in ridiculously short amounts of time Nice but weird things happened to the Arcade Fire all of 2005 They played a Talking Heads song with David Byrne at one of their shows and then got to open for him at the Hollywood Bowl They got to perform with David Bowie both in concert and on national TV They got to go to Japan and Sweden and Brazil They also got to perform a very poorly rehearsed version of Love Will Tear Us Apart Again with U2
Coming off a year of intense touring they wanted to just sit down and write some songs And then record them So they found a church out in a small town and turned it into a studio The band worked and played and worked and as Christmas 2006 approached the recording was finished NEON BIBLE was full of both halfassed punk rock mistakes and meticulously orchestrated woodwinds Processed strings and mandolin Quiet rumbles and loud rumbles But mostly just eleven songs that the band thinks are really good And that might be of some public interest So on with 2007


Recorded and mixed during 2006 at "the church" in Quebec.
Additional recording was done at Win and Régine's house, the St. James Angelican Church in Bedford, Québec, the Église St. Jean Baptiste in Montréal, as well as in New York and Budapest. Additional mixing was done at Olympic Studios in London.
