Kevin Drew

Kevin Drew (that's him on the right, the one on the left can sing too) of Broken Social Scene will be releasing a solo album on Arts & Crafts on September 18. It has the rather unwieldy title of, 'Broken Social Scene Presents Kevin Drew "Spirit If..." It involves the help of many of his friends, well here is the press release anyway...

Kevin Drew's "Spirit If..." was recorded over the last two years at Ohad Benchetrit'’s house in between social scene tours and day-to-day life. It was produced by Ohad Benchetrit, Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin.
This is the first in the BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE PRESENTS series. Brendan Canning and company are currently recording the second in Toronto. It will be released early next year.
Drew and Canning, the two co-founders of Broken Social Scene decided to approach making records as solo projects. In the process the social scene community took part and played key supporting roles, thus giving birth to this series. Along with the BSS crew, Drew has invited many other guests to perform on "Spirit If...".

The record unfolds like a emotional comic book. It's Drew's song-writing and all his favourite topics are addressed: fucking, fighting, fearing and hope. FFFH.

This fall Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, along with new members will commence the "BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE PERFORMS" touring series. They will tour select songs from this album and others from this series.
