Looking Back: Arcade Fire "Rebellion (Lies)" Video
Arcade Fire recorded their debut album Funeral at Hotel2Tango in late 2003. It was released on September 14, 2004. It was given its title because several band members lost people in their families: Regine Chassagne's grandmother died in June 2003, Win and William Butler's grandfather (swing musician Alvino Rey) in March 2004, and Richard Reed Parry's aunt in April 2004. It contained five singles: "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)", "Neighborhood #2 (Laika)", Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)", "Rebellion (Lies)", and "Wake Up".
Our selection for this week's feature is the video for "Rebellion (Lies)". This is probably my favorite song from Arcade Fire and every time I hear it, I'm reminded of their legendary performance at ACL 05' while being surrounded with great friends.
