Recently, Broken Social Scene debuted two new songs, “Can’t Find My Heart” and “1972.” Today they announce Let’s Try The After – Vol 1, a new EP that will be released on February 15th via label Arts & Crafts. The EP’s electric first single, “All I Want,” with lead vocals by Andrew Whiteman. With the announcement of the forthcoming EP, Broken Social Scene have also revealed a series of residencies. The group will perform in Montreal at the Corona Theatre on May 21st and 22nd and in Los Angeles at the Henry Fonda Theatre on June 5th and 6th. More dates will be announced soon.
All songs were produced and mixed by Nyles Spencer with the exception of “1972,” produced by the band’s own Charles Spearin and Joe Chiccarelli. “The point is to keep going,” says band leader Kevin Drew. “We have more to give. These songs have lived beside us and become our commencement party while continuing together. We hope you enjoy this EP for you and me.”
For their upcoming residencies, Broken Social Scene has once again partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every U.S. ticket will go to support Youth Speaks, who provide life changing arts programs for vulnerable and disadvantaged youth across the country. For Canada, BSS has partnered with MusicCounts so that $1 from every ticket will go towards putting musical instruments into the hands of kids who need them most.

A Note From The Artist On Let’s Try The After, Vol 1
The ceremony of dying generations without any guidelines for how to move forward makes
these times easy for the mirror wars to continue.
We can hide in the beauty of what has been stolen from us because somewhere there is mystery in not knowing.
How can the ruined survive without a back up plan?
Let’s try the after.
