The mysterious graffiti art works that spell out the word “Reflektor” has been confirmed to be part of Arcade Fire’s album announcement. Recent graffiti has included the band’s name, as well as the date 9/9 and time of 9pm.
Arcade Fire knew what they were doing when they caused rumors to fly surrounding the odd symbols put up by graffiti artists, as well as the website showing one being created, and an Instagram dedicated to pictures of the art. With recent artworks, and a billboard in Los Angeles, the mysterious symbols have been officially proven to be associated with the band. The new artwork includes both the band’s name and a date of 9/9, 9pm, which is likely alluding to a single release or album preview, though no one can be certain. On top of their album release, the band announced they are working on the soundtrack for Spik Jonez’ Her.
