Rockers Arcade Fire are continuing to set award shows alight – the group took home four trophies from Canada’s Juno Awards over the weekend.
The group was the surprise winner of the Album of the Year for The Suburbs at the Grammy Awards last month, and the record has continued to make waves at music ceremonies around the globe.

At the Junos in Toronto, Canada on Sunday the record gained the band trophies for Best Album and Best Alternative Album, while they also picked up the Best Group and the Best Songwriter titles.

Meanwhile, Canadian Justin Bieber won his first award at the event after supporters voted for him in the fan choice category, and he also landed Best Pop Album for My World 2.0.

Bieber, who is currently on tour in the U.K., left a video message saying, “I want to thank the fans so much for being so supportive, buying my albums and voting for me… All right – peace, Junos.”

Neil Young was a double winner, picking up Best Artist and a humanitarian award.

However, Drake – who was presenting the proceedings – failed to win a single trophy, despite leading the way with six nominations.
