Arcade Fire: Live DVD on the way?

Yesterday, Arcade Fire fans who logged onto the band's website were being directed to a page with the words 'Miroir Noir' - which is French for 'Black Mirror', and also happens to be the name of the opening song from their 2007 album 'Neon Bible'. Although no official press release has been made, the website showed previously-unreleased live footage of the band - along with a message 'Miroir Noir, Neon Bible Archives, Coming Soon' appearing at the end of the video.

The Arcade Fire fan site, Us Kids Know was also reporting ..."Miroir Noir will feature live footage from the 'Neon Bible' tour, filmed by Vincent Moon (La Blogotheque)and directed by Vincent Morisset. Keep an eye on for details."

Update: The 70-minute film is actually available for download Mond. the 15th, with a DVD edition being made available later in January. Fans who pre-order the DVD will digitally receive the documentary immediately. For fans willing to go the extra mile, they can receive a deluxe DVD that features live performances from Friday Night With Jonathon Ross, Saturday Night Live and the BBC Studio Maida Vale.
