Broken Social Scene released a new album, Hug of Thunder, back in July via Arts & Crafts. Now they have shared a video for "Skyline." The band's own Kevin Drew directed the clip, which starts with Drew, bandmate Brendan Canning, and their friend Dimitri Karakostas meeting rock band Foreigner (from the late 1970s and the 1980s). Then they take part in a strange support group involving Foreigner and peanut butter. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Broken Social Scene premiered a new song, "Halfway Home," in March and the next day the band stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform the new single. Then they shared the album's title track, "Hug of Thunder," which features vocals from Feist, along with "Skyline" and "Stay Happy." Then they shared a bonkers Kevin Drew-directed video for "Vanity Pail Kids," which starred a toilet who's trying to break into the music industry.

The album also features longtime Broken Social Scene collaborators/members Metric's Emily Haines and James Shaw and and Stars' Amy Milan and Evan Cranley. The full lineup for the new album is as follows: Kevin Drew, John Crossingham, Brendan Canning, Sam Goldberg, Charles Spearin, Ariel Engle, Justin Peroff, Leslie Feist, Andrew Whiteman, Emily Haines, Evan Cranley, Amy Millan, Jimmy Shaw, Lisa Lobsinger, David French, Ohad Benchetrit, and Jason Collett.
