Hug of Thunder is the 5th album from the Canadian band Broken Social Scene, released on July 7th, 2017 on the label Arts & Crafts.
Founding member Charles Spearin says "When we're working, we understand that there will be a lot more input, so we leave space in the music as we're writing it," adding, "We send out invitations for all the usual crew, and say, 'Hey, we're doing this again. Would you be interested in being part of this?'" In the end, 18 musicians were credited on Hug of Thunder.

Hug of Thunder ranked 28 of the albums released in 2017 as voted by KEXP listeners. It is the band's first album in 7 years. They chose to reunite after the 2016 Paris Shootings, feeling that "...putting our unified friendship out there was a great protest that we could do."
