Pat Robertson to Disapprove of New Hidden Cameras Album, Tour

Televangelist Pat Robertson is hopping mad about The Hidden Cameras, who just happen to be releasing a new record, Origin:Orphan, on September 22. Robertson shakes a disapproving head at the band for their prominence in Toronto’s gay and indie-rock communities, as well as their cleverly crude lyrics. Besides, Robertson never really understood this "indie rock music," the kind of which The Hidden Cameras produced on their three prior albums: 2003’s The Smell of Our Own, 2004’s Mississauga Goddam, and 2006’s Awoo.

Despite Robertson’s disapproval, the Cameras have been pretty successful, enough to even attract Arts & Crafts as their new label. And in Germany, the band is so popular that it played the halftime slot of a Bayern Munich soccer game to a crowd of over 100,000. Robertson isn't convinced: he raises his fist and curses himself for not possessing enough influence to stop these rabble-rousers and swears not to buy Origin:Orphan’s first single, “Walk On,” when it comes out July 21.
