ICYMI: BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE
4/9/18

BY RANYA KHOURY

After a seven-year break, Arts & CraftsBroken Social Scene hit the road in support of their latest album, Hug of Thunder—their first LP since 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record. The band kicked off their tour on 3/23 in Austin, Texas and wrapped up the 12-date U.S. tour on 4/8 in Montclair, New Jersey. 
 
I had a chance to see the band in the small town of Huntington, New York on 4/7. After years apart, the duo performed at The Paramount, as if their paths had never separated. A few highlights from the show:
  • Lead male vocalist Kevin Drew amped up the crowd early on with talk of a better tomorrow. “Keep fighting the good fight,” he chanted. 
  • The band carried on past traditions and dedicated 50 seconds for the crowd to scream as loud as possible, relieving any built-up tension.
  • Ariel Engle performed a solo song pulled off the duo’s upcoming album, The Force 
  • The Belle Game joined Engle on stage for a chilling set of “Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl” 
After subtle hints at a close release date, we anticipate the band's U.S. return soon after the Euro dates currently on their docket.
