Bell Orchestre are a five-piece instrumental band from Montreal, Canada. In late 2003, they recorded their first album, at the same time and in the same studio that Arcade Fire recorded Funeral. However, Arcade Fire's popularity was just beginning to break when they asked Bell Orchestre to tour with them in the fall of 2005, delaying the release of their album. Recording a Tape the Colour of the Light was finally released in 2005. In March 2006, Bell Orchestre launched a tour of Europe and the US to promote the album.
According to the band's site, there is a new recording in progress. They are working in Soma Electric Studios in Chicago, IL.
