LET’S TRY THE AFTER - VOL 1 EP OUT FEBRUARY 15TH VIA ARTS & CRAFTS
LIVE DATES BEGIN APRIL 24
Broken Social Scene have a new EP out tomorrow called Let’s Try The After, Vol 1. One of the EP’s most awesome songs – a classic BSS tune called “Boyfriends” – is out today care of an all-gif video by @WhatGIFs. And yes, we definitely put this out for Valentine’s Day, because in many ways, that’s also what the song is about.
In addition to this wildly fantastic video, the band has also created a little site where you can send all your loved ones valentines, sharing all the lovers’ spit in the world. Click HERE to get going.
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.
Broken Social Scene previously announced a series of residencies in Montreal at the Corona Theatre on May 21st and 22nd and in Los Angeles at the Henry Fonda Theatre on June 5th and 6th. They have added a residency in their hometown of Toronto. Dates are below.

A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST ON LET’S TRY THE AFTER - VOL 1
The ceremony of dying generations without any guidelines for how to move forward makes
these times easy for the mirror wars to continue.
We can hide in the beauty of what has been stolen from us because somewhere there is mystery in not knowing.
How can the ruined survive without a back up plan?
Let’s try the after.
