The Tragically Hip Have Officially Joined TikTok
Published May 11, 2021It's no longer just Gen Z kids with terrifying fashion takes dominating TikTok. In fact, there are plenty of Canadian artists flooding the app to share all kinds of treats. Among them is now the Tragically Hip, who have launched their own official TikTok page today.
"The Tragically Hip is happy to announce the beginning of our new TikTok endeavour. All of us are excited to join a platform where we can engage with all of you, as well as a new generation of TTH fans," the band said in an official statement.
