Boo, Win! Hiss!

Win Butler, aka lead fop of the band Arcade Fire, blogged today on that news earlier this week that his band would be crafting the soundtrack to Richard Kelly's film The Box with a firm yet polite (what else; they're Canadian) negative:

"[J]ust to let you all know that (internet-based fact checking aside) Arcade Fire is NOT doing the soundtrack to any film. We are all off for the summer, writing songs, reading books, and keeping our plants alive. Regine, Owen Pallet and I may do an instrumental piece or two for Richard Kelly's new movie...we met at a show this year and hit it off, but we are not planning on doing any major work for a while, and this would not constitute a soundtrack or release."

Well a big Bah humbug to you too, Debbie Downer. (via Stereogum)
