:: Yes, it’s here. The new We Are Scientists record. In full. Enjoy!
Still a week to go till Brooklyn’s We Are Scientists are releasing their new LP, but you can already listen to it in full by now. The album is entitled TV en Français, it hits the shelves in the UK/Europe on March 03, 2014 via 100% Records/Dine Alone Records/Masterswan Recordings. US release follows on March 04. It’s the fifth studio album by the indie-rock duo Keith Murray and Chris Cain, and the second full-length since former Razorlight drummer and singer/songwriter Andy Burrows joined in 2009. Last October, We Are Scientists released Business Casual, an EP of five songs of which Dumb Luck and Return The Favor are now re-featured on the album as well.
TV en Français is now streaming in its entirety over at the We Are Scientists website. The set of ten songs was recorded in New York City in the course of the past year, it’s produced and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Blonde Redhead) who previously worked with the band as engineer on 2008’s Brain Thrust Mastery. Vocalist/guitarist Murray explains: “Yeah, working for the first time with Chris Coady as producer had a huge effect – he has such a distinct and well-developed sense of what’s cool and what sounds good, but he’s also emphatic about keeping the rawness of the performances in there.”
The new album is released as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy digitally via iTunes or order your physical copy here.
We Are Scientists will start touring right after the album release. They start in Europe with a London show at Rough Trade East on March 05, and the tour will also take them to North America and Australia until the end of May.
