Arcade Fire have put their converted church recording studio up for sale. The band has tweeted a real estate listing for Farnham, Quebec's Petite Église, where they recorded Neon Bible and The Suburbs. The 15,751 square-foot space sports three bedrooms, a large nave, a laundry room, and a kitchen-dining room, but the recording equipment appears to have been removed.
Arcade Fire revealed to Rolling Stone last October that they had relocated to a new recording studio to work on their new album after the roof of Petite Église began to collapse. The band purchased Petite Église in 2005, installing beds in the basement and mixing boards on the upper floors. They've also opened up the studio to Beirut, Owen Pallett and other musicians over the years.
