History of Arcade fire Formation and early work (2003) lineup Reading Festival 2010

The current band was formed in 2003 in Montreal by the future husband and wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, Win’s brother William Butler, Richard Reed Parry and Tim Kingsbury. Together with drummers Dane Mills and Brendan Reed, this line-up self-released an EP later that same year. The eponymous release (often referred to by fans as the Us Kids Know EP) was sold at early shows. After the band achieved fame, the EP was subsequently remastered and given a full release.
The promise shown by the band in its early live shows allowed it to land a record contract with the independent record label Merge Records before the end of its first year together.
When asked about the rumour that the band’s name refers to a fire, in an arcade, Win Butler replied: “It’s not a rumour, it’s based on a story that someone told me. It’s not an actual event, but one that I took to be real. I would say that it’s probably something that the kid made up, but at the time I believed him.”
