Broken Social Scene is a Canadian supergroup, an alternative orchestra with core members Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning as well as revolving members from other bands like Feist, Stars and Metric. Their 4th studio album, Forgiveness Rock Record debuted at #34 on the US Billboard 200 and presents many social and political topics that so very well represent the liberal standpoint of the band members. The album features many longer songs that ought to make for great live jam sessions throughout their tour.

The bandâ€™s ever changing lineup has included up to 15 members at one given point, both in the studio and at live shows. The bandâ€™s newest member Reverie Sound Revueâ€™s Lisa Lobsinger provides most of the lead vocals on their latest album. Broken Social Scene will be coming to the House of Blues September 17th as a promotional tour for Forgiveness Rock Record.
