As the unofficial leader of the Broken Social Scene collective, Drew has a lot of weight on his shoulders. After a four and a half year “hiatus” in which individual BSS members explored semi solo projects in the Broken Social Scene Presents series (Drew released the Spirit If album and bassist/mulit instrumentalist Brendan Canning the Something for All of Us album) Broken Social Scene emerged rejuvenated with the Forgiveness Rock Record in early 2010. As always, Kevin Drew is an energetic and magnetic frontman, and with Forgiveness Rock Record, the band proves that they are gracefully moving into the next chapter of their career as vital, elder statesmen and women in a crowded indie rock scene.
