Last month Broken Social Scene released a new EP, Let’s Try the After - Vol. 1, via Arts & Crafts. They are releasing its follow-up EP, Let’s Try the After - Vol. 2, on April 12 via Arts & Crafts. Previously they shared Vol. 2‘s first single, “Can’t Find Me Heart” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Now they have shared another song from it, “Big Couches.” It was shared via Adult Swim’s Singles series. Listen to it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously they shared Vol. 1‘s first single, “All I Want,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then, on the eve of the EP’s release, the Canadian band shared another track from Vol. 1, “Boyfriends,” via a fun video made up entirely of GIFs.

Vol. 1 included “1972,” a song they recently performed in a session for the Canadian music show The Strombo Show. The other new song they performed on the show, “Can’t Find My Heart,” is on Vol. 2.

Frontman Kevin Drew had this to say about Vol. 2 in a previous press release: “The theme is to continue. Sickness, suicide, uprise, love, death, betrayal, hurt, joy, sex, communication, battles and divisions ... Let’s just get to their after and start building again. How do we do it within the isolation of self prescribe empty popularity? How does the ego revolt? How does the heart win? Can it? Maybe after we will find out.”

Broken Social Scene’s last album, Hug of Thunder, was released in July 2017 via Arts & Crafts. It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017.

The chang came at 12:01 AM on April 30th,
with Kiss’ last song being “Brother’s Gonna Arrange it Out”
by Willie Hutch. I now have hundreds of friends, many whom I
never met, via Facebook and hundreds of followers on Twitter.
