Broken Social Scene

After playing a series of sold out shows around the release of their new album, Forgiveness Rock Record, Canadian collective Broken Social Scene will be heading out on a North American tour. The band will be playing select festivals this summer, including Sasquatch in George, WA, Toronto Island Concert, in the band’s hometown and the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago, as well as a highly anticipated show at Rumsey Playfieldin New York City’s Central Park. The band’s recent shows have been remarkable and the new songs sound amazing live.

Over the course of its decade-long existence, Broken Social Scene has become one of the most vital voices in independent music with an extensive, fluctuating lineup and exceptionally talented comprising members.

Forgiveness Rock Record is the group’s fourth full-band album and was born out of a desire to try something new. The band pared down its sprawling lineup to a more succinct roster including Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, Andrew Whiteman, Sam Goldberg and Lisa Lobsinger and recorded for the first time in Chicago with the guidance of producer John McEntire of Tortoise. The resulting collection of songs is more cohesive and melody driven than previous BSS output but it still maintains the collective’s signature, expansive quality. Broken Social Scene’s live shows are always outstanding and these upcoming dates should not be missed.
