We Are Scientists, the Brooklyn, New York based power pop troupe are set to return with their sixth album titled Megaplex. The album will be released via 100% Records on April 27th.
The infamous duo, Keith Murray (guitar/vocals) and Chris Cain (bass), are once again set to dazzle the world with ten brand new splashes of colourful and utterly addictive pop that serve as a welcome distraction to these bleak times we live in. And as if that wasn’t enough, they will be playing the Southampton Joiners on the 28th March. It’s the very first date of their UK and worldwide tour so expect a real sense of energy and excitement from the band.
Southampton Joiners is famous for its positive vibes and unique atmosphere and has been the venue for many great shows over the years. We Are Scientists will continue the tradition of great nights that have happened there over the years. Megaplex is set to be an uplifting blend of pop and indie to give listeners some positive vibes.
We Are Scientists have been delivering consistently fabulous music for nearly the past two decades since forming in 2000. They show no sign of slowing down and their sixth album is set to be as exciting and lively as their first. Their last album, Helter Seltzer was released in April 2016, and two years later they are ready to go again. This consistent work rate is one of the reasons for their success. Their undeniable talent is another, the music video for Classic Love from Helter Seltzer was animated by Keith Murray himself, showcasing his ability to be involved in every aspect of their music.
The scientists are in their element
The attention to detail is evident in the music they create and a part of the reason people love them. To maintain relevance over a nearly 20 year period requires not only a loyal and appreciative fan base but an understanding of music that goes beyond producing and performing content. They clearly understand the importance of adaptability, but with this comes the difficult balance of being able to evolve and change with consumer needs but at the same time stay true to your own style. This awareness of what makes them great coupled with their ability to maintain relevance in a music industry that moves at the speed of light is the reason they have been going for so long.
After so many years, We Are Scientists are in their element when they are on stage performing. All this experience is what is bound to make their upcoming UK tour a huge success. If you have the chance to go and see them, do so. It is a truly unmissable event with veterans of the music scene still going strong.
