We Are Scientists – “One In One Out”

By Will Oliver, February 21st 2018

Brooklyn’s We Are Scientists recently announced the release of their sixth album Megaplex on April 27 via 100% Records.

The group recently shared the album’s first single “One In One Out,” a track that fans of the band will have no problem warming up to. It does a lot of what the band has been doing for the past decade, diving deep with one of their signature hook-filled chorus that is right in their wheelhouse.

Find the official video posted below, which was directed by Jedidiah Mitchell who also handled the visual effects. The band have also announced some new tour dates, including a performance at Bowery Ballroom on June 16. Tickets are currently on sale here.

We Are Scientists released their most recent album Helter Seltzer in 2016 and we caught them last year at Irving Plaza when they celebrated the 10th anniversary of With Love and Squalor.

They haven’t released any new music since then but they have still been going at it live, most recently bringing it back home for a performance at Knitting Factory on November 15 as a part of the Knit Ball 2017.

We Are Scientists at Irving Plaza (May 11, 2016)

On May 11 hometown boys We Are Scientists played a special show at Irving Plaza that served two purposes. Firstly, it was in support of their newly released album Helter Seltzer (via 100% Records). Secondly, it served to celebrate the ten year anniversary of their breakthrough record With Love and Squalor. To celebrate this, the first set from the band (Keith Murray and Chris Cain) featured the groups previous drummer Michael Tapper to resume his old duties on the songs that he helped create.

Getting to see the old trio back together again, delivering all these crowd-pleasing rockers took me back to 2006, when I saw We Are Scientists open up for Arctic Monkeys at Roseland Ballroom, one of my earliest concert memories. Some songs such as “Worth The Wait” and “What’s The Word” haven’t been played in many years (since 2007 and 2006, respectfully). They nailed each and every song, proving that sometimes it’s perfectly fine to revel in nostalgia.

We Are Scientists at Brooklyn Bowl (November 20, 2014)

If We Are Scientists are playing NYC, I’m there. These days the duo of Keith Murray and Chris Cain are joined by Keith Carne, who is the current live drummer (though Andy Burrows is still billed as their official one). Earlier in the year they released their new record TV en Français, and they stopped by New York last month for a grand old time at Brooklyn Bowl.

I missed openers TEEN + Cookies as I was checking out Tobias Jesso Jr. a couple blocks away, but I got there just in time for We Are Scientists, of course.

They played some tracks off TV en Français but mostly stuck to tried and true fan favorites such as “Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt,” which made an unexpectedly early appearance in the set. Murray and Cain mixed in their usual comedic banter in-between songs, when they weren’t taking swings out of a giant bottle of alcohol. A highlight of the show was seeing Murray come into the crowd, even hamming it up for a selfie that a fan took during the process. That and seeing Tim Wheeler from Ash (who as we learned was Murray’s old guitar teacher!) come out to cover Stone Temple Pilots’ “Interstate Love Song,” with the band. He stuck around for “After Hours,” which has appropriately become their go-to closer live.

If you want to see a rock show that is just fun in every way imagine, go see We Are Scientists. You’ll never leave disappointed.

We Are Scientists released a few singles over the summer, and they’ve just announced that they will also release a brand new EP this fall (no idea if the songs will be on the EP). It’s called Business Casual, and it’s coming out October 15.

They announced the EP with this following trailer, which ends with what sounds like one pretty incredible song. Can’t wait until October. Find the trailer below.

We Are Scientists are back with a brand new 7″ that they will release next week. They’ve gone ahead and premiered one of the songs, “Something About You”, over at Neon Gold. It’s got a nighttime glow to it that sounds very much We Are Scientists. Always good to hear from these guys.

If you’re around the city tonight, they’re playing a show at Santos Party House. Otherwise, check out the track below.

[music video] We Are Scientists – I Don’t Bite

By Will Oliver, September 10th 2010

We Are Scientists always have entertaining music videos. Their latest one is for current single “I Don’t Bite”. It shows various sequences of the bands journey in the back seat of a car, some with blood (I think I own Kieth’s dirty shirt), and some as drag queens. Pure entertainment, as usual.
