    After previously reported health concerns and a number of band cancellations, Win Butler, frontman for the Arcade Fire, is recovering from sinus surgery and expects to return to touring in a couple of weeks.

    Butler writes on the band's official website:

    "Hi! Just wanted to let you all know that the surjery [sic] was successful, and I am recovering nicely. Thank you for all of your thoughts and emails... I will probably start singing again this week some time to try and get ready for the shows in North America.

    It has been a blessing in disguise to be forced to stay home and read, and sleep (pick up Cormac Mcarthy's [sic] 'The Road' if you are feeling like a little post apocalypse...don't let the Oprah Book Club Sticker scare you away)... Regine and I have even started working on some new songs... anyway see you all soon

    luv
    Win"

    The Montreal collective has also tapped a number of impressive opening bands for the North American tour, like the National, Electrelane, and the Handsome Furs.
