In Between Evolution is the ninth full-length album by Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip. It was recorded at Studio X in Seattle and was released June 29, 2004. The album debuted at number one in Canada, selling 22,500 copies in its first week. However, the album got kicked off Canada's number one spot to Avril Lavigne's breakout album. The album was certified Platinum in Canada in September 2004.
One of the major themes of this album is the response to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. "Heaven Is a Better Place Today" doubles as a tribute to Dan Snyder, a player for the Atlanta Thrashers hockey team who died in an automobile accident nine months before the album's release, and for young men being sent to war.
The Hip performed a rough version of the song "It Can't be Nashville Every Night" on a season two episode of Canadian situation comedy TV program Corner Gas, as a local band renting out main character Brent Leroy's garage for band practice.
