Brendan Canning, co-founder of the seminal alt-rock collective known as Broken Social Scene, is getting set to head out on tour in support of his latest record, Home Wrecking Years, out now via Arts & Crafts. Tour dates beginNovember 18 with more dates being announced shortly.
Aside from Canning the rest of the touring band is filled out by Greg Calderon, Mike Calderon, Graham Jones, Kevin Kane, and Dani Nash. “This is the band that is mostly responsible for how the songs on Home Wrecking Years came to be,” says Canning. “I love playing with this crew and I'm glad these dates came together so we could rock this shit one more time for all the fine people in the neighbourhoods.”
Canning’s other band, Broken Social Scene, recently played their first full shows in a few years at Pitchfork Festival in Chicago and Panorama Music Festival in New York City, treating fans to old favourites, new music, and a couple tracks played from Canning’s new collection. Broken Social Scene has announced they are back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2010’s Forgiveness Rock Record.
