As a celebration of the 15th anniversary of Arcade Fire’s seminal debut album, the band has released a remastered version of their video for “Rebellion (Lies).”
“The ‘Rebellion’ video is the first video we made as a band, filmed in the months before the release of ‘Funeral,'” Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler explained to NME. “Our friend Josh Deu, who used to play in Arcade Fire, did the visual effects on the video. Somehow along the way the wrong version got uploaded and the official video only existed in a degraded form. We are happy that he was able to redo the hand drawn effects for this restoration. Enjoy the band as the babies we were!”
Arcade Fire is also set to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the album on September 14th by releasing archival pictures and previously unseen live footage.
