Yesterday Broken Social Scene issued a press release stating that they are currently working on a new album. They didn’t release any details as to what we can expect from this upcoming album, but at least there is new music to look forward to.
This will be their fifth studio album and the first album in six years. The last album they released was Forgiveness Rock Record (2010) which was shortlisted for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.
Consequence of Sound reports that this comes at the same time as news that the Canadian collective begins touring again for the first time since 2011. Their tour dates can be found below.
