Fresh off a sold-out North American tour in support of their acclaimed album Forgiveness Rock Record, Canadian collective Broken Social Scene will be playing ten special shows throughout the U.S. this February. Tour dates are listed below.
Over the course of its decade-long existence, Broken Social Scene has become one of the most vital voices in independent music. Forgiveness Rock Record¸ the band’s first proper album in five years, is one of the finest in their vast and incredible catalogue.
Praise for Forgiveness Rock Record:
“It’s an exuberant collection of songs with electronic ambiance, powerful drum beats, punked-out fuzz bass, soaring lead guitars, raucous horn sections and even a little flute. And when vocals belt out the chorus, you get the big collective sound of Broken Social Scene.” – NPR
“And while a 59-minute absolution session sounds excessive for even the most devout fans, Broken Social Scene aren’t just throwing out hail marys here…Their ambition is intact. Forgiveness has distinct targets and leaves little room for wayward meanders.” (Best New Music) – Pitchfork
“Another epic LP overflowing with charismatic rompers, boldly pushing listeners into the summer season.” – Paper
