Back in 2013, perennial indie-rock gods Arcade Fire caused a stir in Miami when they descended upon a couple of midsized venues in downtown and Little Haiti as the mysterious masked band the Reflektors. The impromptu shows, which sold out in minutes, came as part of a handful of similar live performances in advance of their latest record release. They were highly conceptual, experimental, and, well, pretty wild.

The band's fourth studio album, Reflektor, went on to become a number-one international bestseller, hooking listeners with an immersive, multiplatform promotional campaign that, apart from the Reflektors performances, included guerrilla-style street art and two innovative music videos.

Now, fans are being treated to a brand new way of experiencing the acclaimed double album, two years in the making. Directed by 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Films winner Kahlil Joseph and produced by award-winning studio Pulse Films (20,000 Days on Earth, Shut Up and Play the Hits) and What Matters Most, The Reflektor Tapes documentary film premiered earlier this month at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and will begin screening tomorrow, September 23, at theaters all around the world.

Here's what to expect:

Audiences will relive stunning concerts from the Reflektor tour, re-envisioned in true cinema high definition and surround sound. The film will also offer a rare opportunity for fans to delve beneath the surface and get closer to the band themselves. With Arcade Fire granting previously unprecedented access to Joseph, The Reflektor Tapes fluidly blends in never before seen personal footage, including interviews, documentation of the recording process and moments captured by the band themselves, to dazzling effect.

Arcade Fire said of the film: “There were parts of the Reflektor tour where I think we, Arcade Fire, came the closest in our careers to putting on stage what we imagined in our heads. We were insanely lucky to have Kahlil Joseph documenting from the very beginning."

In addition to showcasing music from Reflektor and other albums in Arcade Fire’s storied back catalogue, The Reflektor Tapes will also give viewers a chance to hear a brand new, unreleased track for the first time and features an exclusive 15 minutes of unseen footage, filmed with the band only for cinema audiences.
