Arcade Fire’s church studio for sale

Needs a roof.

Two of Arcade Fire’s albums – Neon Bible and The Suburbs – were recorded in the same studio, built inside an old church. But sessions for a new album had to take place elsewhere after the roof collapsed, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be going back.

So, if you want to own a piece of Arcade Fire history and you happen to be flush, you can actually buy it. Pitchfork have found the real estate listing in Farnham, Quebec and it reads:

“Charming church which housed a small concert hall, followed by a recording studio also offering accommodation. Its architecture makes it a perfect location for an artist's studio, a place of worship, a cultural, community or other organization. Offer here a unique setting to your project!”

Yours for just $325,000, plus $24,000 minimum to fix the roof.
