Canadian indie rock band Broken Social Scene are shaking up the music scene with their first album in seven years.
The group have announced their plans to release Hug of Thunder on July 7. They last released their first-ever number one Canadian album Forgiveness Rock Record on May 4, 2010.
The album’s title, track-list, and cover were leaked on the internet and the authenticity of the leak was later confirmed by Pitchfork. The band has since taken to Twitter to confirm details regarding their fifth studio album.
