If you support Under the Radar‘s Patreon page at the minimum contribution of at least $1.00 a month you get access to our Patreon-only feed featuring exclusive content only available to Patreon supporters. Today’s Patreon exclusive is a selection of previously unseen photos of Broken Social Scene from a photo-shoot Under the Radar‘s co-publisher Wendy Lynch Redfern did with them in 2005. While some images from this shoot have been seen, these are specific frames that have never seen the light of day.

The shoot was done in honor of the band’s album at the time, Broken Social Scene. We photographed the band at the Hillside Festival on Guelph Lake Island in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The print magazine article on the band ran in a special “O Canada” issue dedicated to Canadian musicians. The cover of the issue was a composite image of various Canadian musicians (including Feist and members of Broken Social Scene, Tegan and Sara, The New Pornographers, The Dears, Stars, Metric, and others) together in one fold out cover image. It was the one and only time we’ve had a fold out cover. So we got shots of the full band by the lake to include in the interior article, as well as shots of Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Emily Haines (also of Metric), and Amy Millan (also of Stars) for the cover image.

Broken Social Scene released a new album, Hug of Thunder, today via Arts & Crafts. It’s their first new album in seven years, since Forgiveness Rock Record. The band 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.” 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.
