While election results coverage took center stage on Tuesday night, Arcade Fire made an appearance as the musical guests on Stephen Colbert's special Election Night 2020: Democracy’s Last Stand: Building Back America Great Again Better 2020, debuting their new song "Generation A." Colbert introduced the anthemic track as being "inspired by the current climate of the country."

Considering the fact that the election results are still inconclusive, the song's impatient hook, “I can’t wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait/ Too little too late,” is more than relatable.

Most recently, Arcade Fire performed at Eaux Claires Festival, the Wisconsin music festival founded by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and the National’s Aaron Dessner, in support of statewide voting initiative "For Wisconsin."
