Broken Social Scene announce new 2018 UK and Ireland tour dates

The Canadian collective will perform on these shores in support of their 2017 comeback record 'Hug of Thunder'

Broken Social Scene have announced a new set of UK and Ireland tour dates for 2018 – check out the newly-confirmed shows below.

The Canadian collective returned to action last year with their first album release in over seven years in the form of ‘Hug Of Thunder’ – their fifth studio LP.

That album’s lead single, ‘Halfway Home’, was released in March 2017 and was performed by members of the collective on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – see that performance below.

Broken Social Scene have now announced a host of UK and Ireland tour dates in support of ‘Hug of Thunder’. Kicking off in Dublin on May 28, the jaunt will extend into June when they wrap their headline tour up at the Academy in Bristol on June 1.

The band will then play at the new London festival, All Points East, on June 2.
