In Violet Light

In Violet Light is the eighth full-length album by Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip. It was released in 2002 (see 2002 in music).

After the album was released, in 2003 singer Gordon Downie released his second solo album of music and poetry, Battle of the Nudes.

Packaged with the album in stores was a membership card for The Hip Club, an online fan club which offered three downloadable bonus tracks, "Forest Edge", "Problem Bears" and "Ultra Mundane". As of May 23, 2006, is no longer active.

The album was produced by Hugh Padgham who has worked extensively with Phil Collins, The Police, Split Enz and Sting among others.

The music video for "'It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken'" was filmed in Oshawa, Ontario at Parkwood Estate. The light-hearted music video for "The Darkest One" featured Don Cherry and the Trailer Park Boys.

"All Tore Up" is featured as menu music in XSN Sports' NHL Rivals 2004 for the Microsoft Xbox. This marked the first time a Hip song was licensed for a video game.

All songs were written by The Tragically Hip.
