Broken Social Scene released a new album, Hug of Thunder, last July via Arts & Crafts. (It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017.) Now they have announced some new U.S. tour dates for the spring. They are partnering with PLUS1 so that one-dollar from every ticket is donated to Partners in Health. Check out the dates below, followed by the loopy video for “Vanity Pail Kids.”

Read our 2017 interview with Broken Social Scene on Hug of Thunder.

Broken Social Scene premiered a new song, “Halfway Home,” in March 2017 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. Then there was a video for “Skyline” featuring the 1980s rock band Foreigner.

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.
