Broken Social Scene return2017-03-31 by SowingSeason STAFF | 21 Comments
|Experimental indie-rockers Broken Social Scene have debuted material from their first record in seven years. "Halfway Home" marks the lead single from the yet-to-be-titled album, and it was given a live unveiling on last night's episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. On a SiriusXMU interview, Kevin Drew stated the following about the song, the band, and the record:|
"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...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."
The album, which is finished and in the process of being mastered, will be out soon according to a quote from Drew. Hear the Sirius clip here:

Song is basically all chorus AND I LOVE IT
Digging: Low Roar - ross.
Great news! Song is pretty good.
Digging: Leif Vollebekk - New Ways
sounds like a coldplay song and not in a good way
the guitar work at 1:21 is fuckin fine as hell tho
edit: I'm still stoked for this album though, I could see this working really well in an album context. just not a fan of that chorus
This is such a great song
Digging: Liturgy - H.A.Q.Q.
Digging: Dirt - Never Mind Dirt - Here's the Bollocks
generic song whoa
so much hype so much nostalgia ahhhh
gonna go stick lover's spit on repeat now i know about this
Digging: Andy Stott - It Should Be Us
track is great as well
I hope the album art mirrors what they used for this single.
Not as good as the other Halfway Home I knowk
Hey that's pretty good.
Track is pretty good. Hyped as fuck!
Solid, and easily better than pretty much everything on their last album. My hopes are high for this.
Song is awesome
it's pretty basic but it's just so euphoric
Damn the twin guitar assault is amazing, I love how they weave in and out of each other.
Digging: Black Devil Disco Club - Disco Club
just wish they would make shit that brings the emotions again
I found the ending part to be actually quite emotional, idk song just sounds like a "We are Back" statement. In context of the album this could be a gem.
