The Suburbs, Arcade Fire's third LP, is set for release on Aug. 3 on Merge. Obviously, no one on the Internetz can wait, which is why Seattle radio station The End has provided you with 30 second snippets of every song from the record streaming on their site right now.
The band is also streaming its Aug. 5 Madison Square Garden concert on YouTube, where we assume they're playing more than 30 seconds of their new songs. To promote this marriage of technology and real life is a trailer where married co-leaders Win Butler and Regine Chassagne appear as puppets. Rumored to have been directed by Spike Jonze, it also features a previously-unheard new track, "Rococco."
