We haven't had new material from our Canadian favourites Broken Social Scene since their 2010 album Foregiveness Rock Record, but it appears the collective are back with a vengeance. 'Halfway Home' signals their first new music in seven years - a single they first performed live this week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Check out the studio version below.

They have also announced a series of live dates that include a show at London's Brixton Academy plus a handful of EU festival appearances:

  • 23/5 - Manchester, United Kingdom - Albert Hall
  • 24/5 - London, United Kingdom - Brixton Academy
  • 26/5 - Neustrelitz, Germany - Immergut Festival
