We booked a tour! It's pretty much what it sounds like: a bunch of shows, lined up right in a row, with a day off every once in a while. This one will take us to Australia, the UK, and Europe, and it'll unfold January-March, 2014.
General sale ticketing for UK/Europe begins this Friday 4th October.
It's been a few years since New York-based We Are Scientists released a new offering. Today, there is good news. With a new record label in tow,100% Records, Keith Murray and Chris Cain are giving fans the kind of songs that put them on the global map and that we've been missing from our playlists - a five-track EP entitled Business Casual , which will be released on October 14th. The duo first hinted at an oncoming release when they put out a double A-side record in July 2013, exclusively to fans through their website with the tracks "Something About You," and "Let Me Win."
Murray & Cain recently trekked down south to the Everglades and Miami, FL and took a break from vacationing to film the new video for "Return the Favor". The video was directed by Dan Monick. Business Casual illuminates the full range of We Are Scientists, from the big chorus of "Return the Favor " to the visceral rock track "Dumb Luck"- both songs were produced by Chris Coady(Beach House, Smith Westerns, Yuck) at Magic Shop in NYC. Fans of the band Berlin will be pleased to hear a smooth, pedal steel version of the classic love song, "Take My Breath Away." The track and "Good Answer" were recorded at Atomic Heart in NYC with Claudius Mittendorfer (Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys, Muse, Interpol).
