SELECTIVE MEMORY PRESENT
Broken Social Scene Announce first Dublin date in 10 years 
Hug Of Thunder Tour Arrives At Tivoli Theatre on 28 May 2018

Broken Social Scene will be heading back to the UK & Ireland this year having just announced a string of dates for this May & June with shows in Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, London and their first Dublin date in 10 years. 


Promoters Selective Memory are bringing Broken Social Scene to Dublin's Tivoli Theatre on 28 May 2018. 


The band released their first new album in seven years last year via City Slang, to a rapturous response from fans and critics alike. 'Hug Of Thunder' is everything BSS fans love from the Canadian collective and then some, an album overflowing with glorious open chords, multi-voice harmonies, spacious psychedelia-tinted breakdowns, and more. Since the record came out, the band have played a multitude of triumphant shows across Europe, America & Canada. 


Broken Social Scene live in Ireland for the first time in a decade. 


With support from Honey Harper


Praise for 'Hug of Thunder'

"On their first album in seven years, Broken Social Scene distill their sound to a vital essence.  The band sounds focused and renewed, invigorated by the missionary spirit of their best work" - 8.4 Best New Music, Pitchfork


"It’s brilliant. It’s the record Broken Social Scene have always had within them, but perhaps never quite achieved… Broken Social Scene’s best album.” - The Quietus


"It’s a glorious return; joyous, enraged and exciting” - Q ★★★★


“‘Hug Of Thunder’ is exactly that: an intimate embrace by an old friend that often contains electrifying highs, but also jolts you with its emotional and musical intricacy. With BSS’s return, the world certainly seems a brighter place” - DIY ★★★★


“BSS emerge reborn and revitalised here. Their sound is bigger than ever” Album Of The Week - Sunday Express ★★★★


“They may be Broken but they don’t need fixing” - The Sun ★★★★


“They’ve created their very own modern classic" - Evening Standard ★★★★


“This is simply the sound of a band having the time of their lives. A delight.” - The Skinny ★★★★


"With members like Feist and Emily Haines back in the fold for the band’s first album in seven years, every song is big, anthemic and emotionally invigorating" - The Guardian ★★★★


“Some of the most exuberant and immediately engaging music they’ve ever recorded… Music that feels comforting and necessary.”  - Uncut 8/10


“Possessing pop hits that are unmatched in scale and scope… Its genuinely great to have the innovators back.” - Louder Than War 9/10


"BSS have managed to master the balance between spiky energy, tender melody and a singular knack for carving out a soaring chorus. Hug Of Thunder has undoubtedly been a long time coming, but it has unequivocally been worth the wait” - The Line Of Best Fit 8.5/10


“Consistently brilliant in it’s ambition” - Loud & Quiet 7/10


"BSS have made an album that trumps any cynicism that they may have faced, and in the process Hug of Thunder is as hearteningly unguarded and positive a record as you are likely to hear this year.”  - Drowned In Sound 7/10
