The acclaimed Canadian Indie Rock collective Broken Social Scene and special guest The Belle Game will be in concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Broken Social Scene has reconvened, in varying forms, several times over the past four years – the odd festival show here and there, but the idea that they might turn their hand to something more than greatest-hits sets had been stirring since November 2014 when producer Joe Chiccarelli told Drew the group needed to make a new album.
Nearly seven years after their last album, Broken Social Scene has created one of 2017’s most sparkling, multi-faceted albums. On “Hug of Thunder”, the 15 members of Broken Social Scene refract their varying emotions, methods and techniques into something that doesn’t just equal their other albums, but surpasses them. It is righteous but warm, angry but loving, melodic but uncompromising. The title track on its own might just be the best thing you’ll hear all year – a song that will become as beloved as “Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl” from their breakthrough album, “You Forgot It in People”.
