By FYI Staff

Arcade Fire is the latest addition to the line-up of performers on the March 25 Juno Awards telecast.


The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences says it will also give the Montreal band an international achievement award at a gala the night previous.

The Canadian band with nine Grammy nominations behind it and nine Juno wins is a leading contender with four nominations at this year's Juno Awards— for best group, single, album and alternative album.

The Juno International Achievement Award recognizes Canadian artists who have achieved success on a global scale. Previous recipients of the award have included Bryan Adams, Alanis Morissette, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Sarah McLachlan and Drake.

"One of the best live shows that travelled across North America last year was Arcade Fire's Infinite Content tour, and we are excited to have them bring it to the Juno stage," CARAS president and CEO Allan Reid said in a statement. "We are also thrilled to recognize Arcade Fire with the International Achievement Award. From Funeral to Everything Now, they have inspired us not only through their music but also through their social activism."
