We Are Scientists

We Are Scientists is an American rock band started in California in 2000 who’ve carried out their last 20 years of art business from a base in New York City. Founding members Keith Murray (guitar) and Chris Cain (bass) have played with guys like Adam, Michael, Andy, Danny, Chris, Matt, and Gary on drums, but for over five years now have had Keith Carne, who looks like he isn’t going anywhere.

Their first album, With Love & Squalor, was certified gold in the U.K. and enjoyed by dance rock fans in many other countries. Subsequent records like Brain Thrust Mastery, TV en Français, and Megaplex saw the incorporation of more synthesizers, strings, and a horn. Although 2021’s Huffy returned to a guitar-driven sound, 2023's Lobes, the band’s eighth studio album, is their synthiest, electronic beatiest collection yet. So, really, who even is We Are Scientists?

The release of Lobes on January 20, 2023 was celebrated with a very special hometown show at Brooklyn Made, followed by touring in the U.K. and Europe. The band is currently on a run of European shows and festivals this summer, with further US dates following in the fall.
