Broken Social Scene take a break

Published: 2006-07-14
Canada's mega-sized indie band, Broken Social Scene, has announced it will take a break from recording and touring after a round of concerts in the fall.

The band is currently in the middle of a Canadian and international tour which will continue with some dates in the United States in the fall. After, the band members will separate for an extended period of time. Some members simply need to regroup, while others will focus on their individual music careers.

Fans should be satisfied with the music that will be delivered to fill the void. Members Andrew Whiteman, Leslie Feist and Dave Newfeld will all be releasing albums in the near future.

One of the band's original members, Kevin Drew, confessed in an interview with Billboard.com that Broken Social Scene was not feeling challenged anymore and needed to take a break to appreciate its music again.

The band gained Canada's attention with its second album You Forgot It in People when it won a Juno Award in 2003. Broken Social Scene's latest self-titled album was released in 2005 and also won a Juno for "Alternative Album of the Year."
