Television host Stephen Colbert has sarcastically branded Arcade Fire a “bunch of tossers” following a leak of the band’s demands ahead of their appearance on Colbert’s show this week.
The band are currently busy promoting the corporation-influenced Everything Now, which has seen Win Butler and co.’s promotional campaign border on the sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek.
Tomorrow, the sextet will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and as part of its promotion host Colbert has shared the band’s diva-ish demands, which were sent to him by the band’s fake organization Everything Now Co. Check it out below.

Among the outlandish demands include the request one packet of vegan hot dogs, as well as a heads-up to not interact with band member Richard Reed Parry.
New album Everything Now came out last week, and you can watch the video for its title track below. Arcade Fire appear on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert tomorrow (3 July).
