Canadian rockers Broken Social Scene—whom you almost certainly listened to during sophomore year at two in the morning with tears in your eyes, if you were an indie rock fan during your college years—have announced additional tour dates in the United States. New album Hug Of Thunder, the band’s first since 2010, took the group throughout the U.S. in fall of 2017, and apparently everyone had a good time, because the following Instagram post just appeared saying there’s another leg of shows happening in the coming several months in support of the record.
Starting in late March, the band will be wending its way through the South, and then working up the East coast before ending in early April with a pair of shows in New York and New Jersey, respectively. These dates are in addition to the previously scheduled performances at Bonnaroo and Pickathon Festival. No word on whether the entire crew will still be there for all the shows, but we’re going to go ahead and assume that roughly 75 percent of the audiences for these gigs will report having a “transcendent” time.
