SHARE NEW VIDEO 'VANITY PAIL KIDS'

LP 'HUG OF THUNDER' OUT NOW ON CITY SLANG!

Following a wave of praise for the release of Broken Social Scene’s newest album, Hug of Thunder, the band has released the video for the album standout song 'Vanity Pail Kids', directed by Kevin Drew. 

Produced by Joe Chiccarelli with Nyles Spencer and mixed by Shawn Everett, Hug Of Thunder is everythingBSS 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.

Broken Social Scene were widely considered to have stolen the show at last year’s End of the Road festival: Bruised, beautiful and chaotically epic, Broken Social Scene are huge, in both numbers and sound.
 
Founded in 2002 by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning, Broken Social Scene quickly established themselves as one of the most vital voices in independent music. Assembled by Drew, and made up of an assortment of musical friends, the band emerged fully-formed from their hometown of Toronto. They were an instantly engaging energetic entity: a tightly-knit community bursting at the seams with talent, personalities, incredible songs and many, many guitars. Their albums were cinematic, critically-acclaimed splashes of concept and melody, marrying a dizzying onslaught of sounds with finely-crafted choruses. The band’s ability to weave a plethora of voices and varied instrumentation into a brilliant postmodern aural onslaught launched them instantly onto the international stage. Live, their shows were notoriously epic, cathartic affairs, sometimes lasting over three hours. As a group, or on their own, Broken Social Scene’s members released some of the 00’s most notable independent albums, cementing their status as one of Canada’s most important musical exports.
