Junior Boys are an electropop group, founded in 1999 in Hamilton, Ontario by Jeremy Greenspan and Johnny Dark. Dark left the project shortly after, and was replaced by engineer Matt Didemus. The duo have since released five albums to mostly favorable critical reception. Almost a year after its initial release So This Is Goodbye was re-released as a bonus edition including the original album, and remixes from the singles and the live tracks from the iTunes session. On 10 July 2007, Junior Boys second album was revealed as being on the shortlist for the 2007 Polaris Music Prize.
