So there is pleanty of News Outside the 313 let look and there is bad News if you a fan of the Broken Social Scene as the band will go on a long, Long extended Hiatus after there Fall Tour, BSS Lead singer Kevin Drew told Billborad.com "We've become that band that doesn't really rehearse anymore," "We just get together and go tour and play live. We've lost a bit of that thing we had at the beginning where we tried to challenge each other a lot more."
"The last few years have been hard," he continued, noting the dramatic uptick in media interest in Canadian rock bands. "Things kept getting bigger and changing. But we've had an incredible, incredible, incredible run. It's something that can't be taken for granted. If we kept going [without a break], we'd be taking it for granted. Next time, we'd be doing college tours for money. That sucks the music out of you. Next thing you know, you're trying to get teenagers to buy your albums."
