Arcade Fire performed “Creature Comfort” on this week’s “Saturday Night Live.” They also did a rendition of “Put Your Money On Me.” Watch the video below of the performances on “SNL.”

This is the band’s fourth appearance on the comedy sketch series. They first appeared on the show in 2007, where they performed “Intervention” and “Keep The Car Running.” Arcade Fire returned to “Saturday Night Live” in 2010, performing “We Used to Wait” and “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains).” And in 2013, the band took to the “SNL” stage in Studio 8H at Rockefeller Plaza to perform “Reflektor” and “Afterlife.”

Everything Now, Arcade Fire’s fifth studio album, was released in July. The record debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 charts, matching the chart-topping success of the band’s previous efforts, the Grammy-winning album The Suburbs (2010) and Reflektor (2013). Just days ago, the Canadian group unveiled “Money + Love,” a special music video that combines the songs “Put Your Money On Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love,” both of which are featured on Everything Now. “The concept of a double video really appealed to us. We’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together,” frontman Win Butler said in a statement about the project.

In the video, which already has close to 200,000 views on YouTube, the members of Arcade Fire star as a group of artists who go bankrupt. Throughout the 16-minute clip, which doubles as a short film, the band steals money from an “evil” record label that threatens to take ownership of their music. One by one, each band member ultimately gets caught. Actress Toni Collette plays a key role.

Also this week, Arcade Fire announced more dates for their “Everything Now Continued” tour. The band, having only just wrapped up last year’s “Infinite Content” tour in November, will head to Europe for a string of shows in April, followed by a couple of more concerts abroad in June. Then in July, the act will make stops across the United States, including in Boston, Louisville and Milwaukee. For a taste of what to expect from their tour, check out the video below of Arcade Fire’s newest performances of “Creature Comfort” and “Put Your Money On Me” on this week’s episode of “SNL.
