The band are rumoured to have played a secret show to 50 people two nights ago in Montreal. Reportedly appearing on stage for an hour the band played through six brand new tracks.
This, of course, is not the first time the band have done something of the sort. Having played a secret show in Montreal during the run-up to the announcement of their fourth album Reflektor, there could well be some new music on its way soon.
The band are set to embark on a European tour soon, which will see them headline the likes of Isle Of Wright, Primavera Sound, Rock Werchter and a host of other incredible festivals, as well as play a show at Castlefield Bowl on July 6th.
