Broken Social Scene not breaking up, not taking guff from reporters

The new album cover 

Despite self-propagated rumours that Forgiveness Rock Record will be Broken Social Scene’s final release—Kevin Drew apparently said so during a taping of a recent concert in Toronto—Brendan Canning and Andrew Whiteman assured fans that’s not the case by being kind of rude to a reporter in an interview with the Toronto Sun:

“Anything to sell a few papers, eh love?” said Whiteman in a mock British accent. “We’re entertainers. And Kevin is the master of ceremonies. So let’s not get so precious about everything.”

Take that, pesky journalist. (Then again, the band is called “Social Scene” in the article’s headline.) In fact, Canning says the band has plenty of material for another album. To promote Forgiveness, BSS will hit the city’s indie record stores (Criminal Records, Rotate This, Soundscapes and Sonic Boom) for four performances in one day.
