Win Butler of Arcade Fire and David Wilson (the director of "We Exist"), have discussed Against Me! frontwomen Laura Jane Grace's recent criticism of the video in an interview with The Advocate.
“Once something gets on the Internet, it works its way into people’s lives in a way that I think is pretty powerful. For a gay kid in Jamaica to see the actor who played Spider-Man in that role is pretty damn powerful, in my opinion. … There was just so much thought and love that went into the video I don’t personally see it as negative.”

Laura has also written some thoughts on Twitter to the article:
this article is hella problematic. To start with there's the fact that Win says "he" and...

Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry will release a new solo album, Music for Heart and Breath, on June 9th. Hit the replies for the track listing and collaborations featured.
[It's] very soft, very quiet music, played utterly in synch with the heart rates and breathing rates of the musicians performing it. Every note you hear is either in synch with the heartbeat of the person playing it, the breathing of the person (or one of the surrounding persons) playing it. So what you hear when this music plays is played precisely in time with someone’s quiet, internal rhythms. Brought to musical life by a handful of different ensembles.

Deadmau5 seemed to take issue with Arcade Fire throwing a few jabs EDM's way the past few weeks. During their Coachella set, Win Butler shouted out "to all the bands playing instruments this weekend" -- and the replies via Twitter from Deadmau5 range from, "arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?" to "inb4 some fucking hipster throws a hackeysack at me." This is way cooler than when I get called out by disgraced band members on my Facebook page.

In an interview with an Australian radio station, Arcade Fire's Win Butler said that the music on the Her movie soundtrack will see an official release in some form.
We're just slow as a band. The music will get out there, it's just, like, a question of if we want to sell it to people or give to people or record other songs or whatever. There are many pieces on the soundtrack that are kind of based on actual songs that we've never really recorded. Yeah, there's a song called Milk and Honey and a song called Dimensions that are, like, lost great Arcade Fire songs. They are actually just things that, like, fit the world of the movie and then we kind of wrote them to the film.
