Exclaim reported today the singer-songwriter was likely working with a new band inspired by the wet, furry dambuilders.
"I have some time off in November and I'm working on this all-lady band called Modern Beaver," she told the publication, adding it was a "Canadian explosion of sexual fantasy and sloppy rock 'n' roll."
This morning, however, the article's headline -- "Kathleen Edwards Introduces Her New Fake All-Female Canadian Band Modern Beaver" -- seemed to rub Edwards the wrong way, inferring the group was fake.
"@exclaimnews please print a correction," Modern Beaver tweeted. "This is not fake. It's not a joke. It's not funny, either. Serious motherfucking beavers here."
On her own account Edwards also tweeted, "MODERN BEAVER IS REAL. @modernbeaver Suck on this, beavers!!!"
Edwards shed some more light on the project which she said would include herself, Rose Cousins, Jenn Grant, Hannah Georgas and possibly Julie Fader. Both Fader and Georgas have toured with Edwards this year with Fader being part of Edwards' touring band at times.
"Modern Beaver's going to be the most lucrative thing I've ever done in my life," Edwards told Exclaim. "Just because of the band name... No one's going to give a fuck about the music."
Edwards also added she owned the internet domain name ModernBeaver.com as well as the twitter account. "We're going all out."
Although little else is known, the first tweet from the group was back in February 2011 with a link to a newspaper article on the beaver. A tweet the same day referred to the NFL's Green Bay Packers, which Edwards is a fan of. In August 2012, Edwards tweeted on her own account about Modern Beaver, describing it as "my vaginally-inclined rock band of awesomely gross behavior at @modernbeaver".
According to the Modern Beaver account they've been working on a song called "Bra Law," but there's no word if the project will result in an EP or album.
Edwards, touring behind her album Voyageur, has dates in the U.S. and Europe remaining in 2012.
