BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE - LET’S TRY THE AFTER - VOL 1 EP
LABEL : ARTS & CRAFTS // RELEASE DATE : FEBRUARY 15, 2019


“The point is to keep going,” says band leader Kevin Drew. “We have more to give. These songs have lived beside us and become our commencement party while continuing together. We hope you enjoy this EP for you and me.”

Let’s Try The After - Vol 1 marks the band’s first new music since their critically acclaimed 5th studio album, 2017’s Hug of Thunder, which saw the collective exploring new ground while maintaining the awesome dynamics that have made Broken Social Scene one of the most beloved indie bands of the last fifteen years. Since then, the ferociously prolific supergroup have continued to release a multitude of projects including most notably Kevin Drew’s work as producer and co-writer on Gord Downie’s posthumous album Introduce Yerself. The album debuted #1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums and won Drew and Downie “Songwriter(s) of the Year” and “Adult Alternative Album of the Year” at 2018’s JUNO’s. That same year Charles Spearin won “Instrumental Album of the Year” for his band, Do Make Say Think's album Stubborn Persistent Illusions. Vocalist Ariel Engle released her solo debut under the moniker La Force. Drew also made his theatrical debut with his play A&R Angels, which premiered at Crow’s Theatre in Toronto.
