    When a band drops a “Vol. 1,” it’s fair enough to expect a follow-up. Thankfully, Broken Social Scene are coming through on that eponymic promise. After releasing their Let’s Try the After – Vol. 1 EP last month, the Canadian indie rockers have now announced Let’s Try the After – Vol. 2. It’s due out on April 12th via Arts & Crafts Records.

    As a first listen to the new EP, BSS have shared “Can’t Find My Heart”, a driving track with reverberating textures swirling around indie Americana rhythms. Speaking of the song in a press release, band co-founder Kevin Drew said,

    “The theme is to continue. Sickness, suicide, uprise, love, death, betrayal, hurt, joy, sex, communication, battles and divisions… Let’s just get to their after and start building again. How do we do it within the isolation of self prescribe empty popularity? How does the ego revolt? How does the heart win? Can it? Maybe after we will find out.”

    Take a listen below. Vol. 2 will also be available alongside Vol. 1 in an exclusive vinyl package for Record Store Day a day later on the 13th.
