We Are Scientists is an American indie rock band featuring Keith Murray and Chris Cain. They formed in 2000 in Claremont, California, United States. Their name was inspired by an awkward conversation with a U-Haul employee who was inspecting a van that the band had rented. The U-haul employee, attempting to make polite conversation, asked the three bespectacled band members if they were scientists. They told him that they were musicians, not scientists.
Set for release on 20th January via 100% Records, We Are Scientists have announced their new album ‘Lobes’. Featuring latest single ‘Operator Error’, the band have also announced that they’ll be heading out on a UK and European tour next year!
