After Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace took to Twitter last week to object to Arcade Fire’s choice to cast Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield in the main role for their “We Exist” video instead of a trans actor, singer Win Butler has responded.
According to Grace, their choice of lead actor was less than stellar.
Arcade Fire’s video for their latest Reflektor single, “We Exist,” is dedicated to those still looking to find their true self. Even if the world doesn’t want them to.
According to frontman Win Butler, “We Exist” is “a gay kid talking to his dad” about being treated equal. The video features a blonde-wigged Andrew Garfield.

Given Win Butler and Arcade Fire’s penchant for being merry pranksters on the band’s current Reflecktor campaign, it was only a matter of time before they responded to EDM star Deadmau5′s recent Twitter tirade against them.
A seemingly innocuous statement made by Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler during the band’s headlining set during the first weekend of Coachella 2014 sent Deadmau5 into quite the Twitter tirade last night (April 23).

Anyone who thought they saw Daft Punk during Arcade Fire’s set at Coachella last night (April 20), we’re sorry to tell you, you were punk’d.
This weekend of Coachella has been pretty chill with very few guest appearances, but just minutes ago, Arcade Fire allegedly brought out world-renowned electronic artists Daft Punk. This would be weird considering the “Reflektor” band, who start a musical conversation about certain cultural personas through their bobbleheads, actually gave a shout-out to all the bands that “still play instruments” last weekend.
