Arcade Fire heading to Haiti

Arcade Fire are planning a trip to Haiti to film scenes for their upcoming DVD.

The Grammy-award winning group intends to perform with local musicians and will be accompanied by British photographer Leah Gordon. Gordon released a book in 2008, titled ‘Kanaval,’ which explored Haitian carnival culture.

Arcade Fire singer Regine Chassange’s parents hail from the earthquake-stricken island, to which the Canadian rockers have pledged over $1 million to help rebuild.


Watch the trailer for ‘Scenes from the Suburbs,’ the forthcoming Arcade Fire short film directed by Spike Jonze, here:
