!!! The expansive Canadian collective have released the first song off their new record, as well as a title and album art (pictured above).
Five years is a long time to go on hiatus, especially seeing as how your band isn't really a band so much as a clustercuss of musicians who rotate in and out like a jam session. Numerous solo projects were associated with the group (Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew, etc), and true these names form the core of the Scene. But it wouldn't be a Broken Social Scene record unless it had a epic feel and an epic roster of guests. Forgiveness Rock Record promises to fulfill all their Broken promises (sorry).
Check out "World Sick" performed live:
Now go download the recording.
Forgiveness Rock Record is out May 4th, via Arts & Crafts in the US. -joe
