We Are Scientists announce new album “Megaplex” due out April 27th

Returing with their sixth studio album We Are Scientists have a ten track album “Megaplex” that is ready to knock your socks off! “One In, One Out” is the first single off the new album and is an introduction to a unseen We Are Scientists.

“At this point in our career, we’ve written so many songs,” explains Keith.  “The pool for this record alone was something like 90 songs deep — that we know exactly what we want out of a We Are Scientists record. We want it to be taut, to bang hard, to have a big hook every four seconds or so. We don’t have to be precious about which songs make it onto a record; we can listen to the ones that didn’t make it at home, on our own time. Megaplex is just the ten most delicious songs that we have — a stacked-up compound of entertainment.”

“It takes a lot of hard work, a lot of honing of craft to make it to six records,” continues Keith. “ I mean, the Velvet Underground never made six albums. The Smiths didn’t. Pavement, Guns N’ Roses, The Stooges — none of them could do it. So, I guess we’re just objectively better than those bands now? It’s just a mathematical fact, right? Van Halen made six with David Lee Roth but only four with Sammy Hagar, so I guess we’re better than Hagar-era Van Halen but only just as good as Roth-era? Which, saying it out loud, makes total sense, yeah.”
