Broken Social Scene Announce Canada-Heavy North American Tour

Broken Social Scene Announce Canada-Heavy North American Tour
If you were disappointed that Broken Social Scene weren't already coming to your town on their ongoing world tour, fear not: the Toronto collective have just announced a big round of new North American dates. And yes, there are a pile of stops north of the border.

After playing several shows in Europe, the UK, Japan and Taiwan, BSS will head back for another string of dates on home soil, including Canadian stops in Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and more. There's also a chunk of new U.S. dates, and you can check out the band's expanded itinerary down below.

Of course, all this touring activity comes in support of the band's recently released - and Exclaim!-approved - Forgiveness Rock Record, which is out now via Arts & Crafts.
