Hold on to your toques! BSS is back babies! Earlier today, Kevin Drew was on SiriusXMU to chat about their upcoming new record and to premiere the FIRST NEW BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE SONG IN SEVEN YEARS!
Indeed, the Canadian supergroup (who’s been melting our hearts since we were just young things) has been working on a brand spankin’ new record, their follow-up to 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record. As Stereogum reports, Drew told SiriusXMU…
It’s been 17 years together as a band, and you just pick up where you left off. It’s always been that way. We’ve been working on this album on and off for the last year, and we thought that, since we’re an anthemic band, we wanted to bring the celebration with this first song.
We wanted this to be unity, and we wanted this record to be all of us. And that’s what it is. At this time and in the state of the world as it is, the one thing we knew we could do is come back as friends.
It was important for all of us to come together because it’s the only thing we can politically do at this moment in time…
“Halfway Home” will make its TV premiere on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and the band announced via their Twitter that Metric’s Emily Haines and James Shaw along with Amy Millan and Evan Cranley of Stars will be joining them. Hold us close ‘cus we’re already crying.
Listen to “Halfway Home” above and a portion of Kevin Drew’s SiriusXMU interview below. As one YouTube commenter aptly said “So you think you can just waltz back into my life after 7 years? Yep.”
Stay tuned for the new BSS record and catch them at Field Trip in Toronto this summer.
