Listen to BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE: Watch BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE: About BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE: Toronto's Broken Social Scene released "Stay Happy," the fourth song from their upcoming album Hug of Thunder. Led by the vocals of newcomer Ariel Engle, listen to "Stay Happy" here. The tour will follow the release of Broken Social Scene's upcoming album Hug of Thunder, out on Arts & Crafts on July 7th, 2017. BSS have released three songs from the record to date, listen to "Halfway Home," "Hug of Thunder," and "Skyline" now. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli and mixed by Shawn Everett, Hug Of Thunder is everything BSS fans love from the Canadian collective and then some, an album overflowing with glorious open chords, multi-voice harmonies, spacious psychedelia-tinted breakdowns, and more. It is a panoramic, expansive album that manages to be both epic and intimate; and like all things BSS, in troubled times, it offers a serotonin rush of positivity. Since their inception in the early Aughts, BSS have always pushed sonic boundaries while remaining reverent of a perfect chorus; almost twenty years down the line, Hug Of Thunder sharpens that balance. The record's twelve songs refract the band's varying emotions, methods, and techniques in ways that not only reference their other albums, but surpass them. Hug Of Thunder is righteous but warm, angry but loving, melodic but uncompromising. And if you've ever fallen in love with Broken Social Scene - as many of us have - it is a perfect return that was truly worth the wait.
