New Broken Social Scene Album Coming in May


It’s about time, Broken Social Scene. Since the release of the band’s 2005 self-titled album, the Canadian collective has toured extensively but not released any new material (aside from solo efforts). But all that will change on May 4 when the group releases it’s latest LP via Arts & Crafts.

The yet-to-be-titled album features the current lineup of Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, Andrew Whiteman, Sam Goldberg and Lisa Lobsinger in addition to a huge list of guest contributors and BSS alum.

Accompanying the album’s release is a handful of live dates, including the BSS-curated Toronto Island Concert on June 19.

Those dates:

1 – San Francisco, Calif. @ The Fillmore
3 – Los Angeles, Calif. @ Henry Fonda Theatre
7 – New York @ Webster Hall
13 – London, England @ Brixton Academy
14 – Minehead, UK @ All Tomorrow’s Parties
17 – London, Englad @ Heaven
18 – Amsterdam, Netherlands @ Melkweg
19 – Cologne, Germany @ Burgerhaus Stollwerck
21 – Paris, France @ La Maroquinerie

19 – Toronto, Ontario @ Toronto Island Concert
