Brooklyn-based Dance Rock band We Are Scientists released their 2021 album Huffy, and only 18 months later revealed sister-album Lobes in January 2023. The band were subsequently able to play across the UK and Europe, but fans in the US were made to wait. But their patience is being rewarded at last. A USA tour is on the cards for November and December.
We Are Scientists (Keith, bassist Chris Cain with drummer Keith Carne) are embarking on a journey through North America, kicking off above the U.S. border in Toronto on Nov. 6th and then crossing back into the States for an over five week tour that sees them hitting cities including Chicago, Seattle, West Hollywood, Dallas, Nashville and their home turf for a grand homecoming show at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on Dec. 15th, 2023.
Vocalist Keith Murray says:
Finally — FINALLY — we get to tour the United States again. It’s been too long, and we’ve been aching for it.
I’ve gotten so excited for the tour, I’ve been decorating my bedroom as various cities on this upcoming run and pretending to play full shows in, say, Kansas City, in anticipation of the real thing. My wife chided me the other day because I insisted on erecting a scale-model papier-mâché Coit Tower, to lend some veracity to my imaginary bedroom San Francisco show. Anyway, it’ll be sweet to finally play these shows in the actual towns, again, rather than in my sad room.
Supporting their two aforementioned albums Huffy and Lobes, which We Are Scientists see as their Daytime and Nighttime records respectively, they’ll be hitting the road playing selections off of these records as well as their other six albums.
