Featured Release: Broken Social Scene – “Hug of Thunder”

Hug Of Thunder

Genre: Indie Rock/Experimental // Label: Arts & Crafts


After a seven year layover, Broken Social Scene has returned with all fifteen of its original members.  Hug of Thunder marks the follow-up to 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record, as the band reunites for what Kevin Drew summarized as “…since we’re an anthemic band, we wanted to bring the celebration…It was important for all of us to come together because it’s the only thing we can politically do at this moment in time.”  To date, four songs from the record have been officially released, but you can now also stream the whole album via NPR [see below link].

Stream the entire record, or check out the lead single “Halfway Home” below:
