WE ARE SCIENTISTS Announce “The Spatter Analysis” Fall Co-Headlining Tour with Surfer Blood
Fourth Album, TV en Français Out Now!
After wrapping up a worldwide tour covering the UK, Europe, North America and Australia, We Are Scientists will hit the road once again this Fall for a handful of co-headlining tour dates with Florida rock band Surfer Blood that they have coined “The Spatter Analysis Tour.” The tour will make stops in Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia among other cities. PRESS HERE for more information and see full routing below. Tickets for all shows will be available on Friday August 8, 2014.
Keith and Chris said, “We’ve been fans of Surfer Blood’s music for years, and have played on a couple of festivals together, but the blend of the two bands in a club setting is going to be a glorious thing — high energy, big rock, with a mutual emphasis on fun, fretwork finesse, and fan fulfillment, plus a The Fast and The Furious Film Festival every day in the We Are Scientists van, between cities.”
We Are Scientists new album TV en Français was released on March 4th on Dine Alone Records. The collection is the culmination of ten years of writing, recording and performing and demonstrates the full musical prowess of the band.

Praise for We Are Scientists:
“Catchy verses collide into catchier choruses: the lolloping groove of ‘Make it Easy’ winds down with wiry, restrained guitar lines; there’s Cure-style claustrophobia underneath the rattling melodies of ‘Return The Favor’; while ‘Don’t Blow It’ is playful, harmony-heavy indie-pop.” – Q Magazine (UK)
“’Make It Easy’ showcases the group’s unwinding ability to mash melody with ethereal tones and uplifting chord progressions. As the song advances, the tempos shift to match the retrospective lyrics with proper emotion” – Baeble Music
“’Dumb Luck’ bears all [their] hallmarks…the gnarly, nimble riffs, the zingy pace, the way Chris and Keith’s vocals layer up and sound just the right amount of world weary, while simultaneously making you want to jump around like an idiot.” – Noisey.com
“[Return the Favor] never loses sight of the great pop formulas these Scientists have always worked with.” – Consequence of Sound
