New Broken Social Scene!

February 19, 2010


It’s been 5 years since we’ve had an album released under the name Broken Social Scene that wasn’t followed by ‘Presents’.  That all finally ends on May 4th when their new album “Forgiveness Rock Record” graces our presence(album art above).  BSS lineups have varied in the past and have a tendency to get a bit largel, but according to frontman Kevin Drew, this album was written and performed by a core group of 6.  Of course, in true BSS style, that core group may not be the only ones playing on any particular track.  Guests on this album include Leslie Feist, Stars’ Amy Millan and Evan Cranley, Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw, Jason Collett, and of course more.

As if you had any doubts on whether or not this release will stack up with prior BSS albums, the recent single release should ease your mind.  Below, feel free to listen to the 7 minute “World Sick”, which is the first track we’re able to hear off FRR.  Also, after the frump, you can give your email address and BSS will let you download your very own version of the song.  Enjoy!
