Holy shit, fellow American fans –
And now San Francisco has a show on July 6 at the Independent. Nice! Tickets for that show go on sale this SUNDAY at 10 AM PST also at Ticketweb.
*cross your fingers for more dates to be announced*
ETA: Check this out for some reassurance.
And it looks like Astralwerks got a page up for the guys here. Check out the webisodes there! (I’ve been laughing for the past half hour now at this stuff.) (Sorry, it looks like the webisodes section is offline now. Damn.)
LAist Interview: We Are Scientists
The guys discuss their influences on the album, and give a more specific hint about the upcoming U.S. tour- west coast fans, pay attention!!!
The funny, peculiar world of We Are Scientists
Very interesting bit here from this article:
The name Brain Thrust Mastery comes from the lunchtime seminars the duo gave in university lecture halls during their last UK tour. An unmusical blend of self-help and sketch comedy, the format was so successful that it has been picked up by a television company and turned into a series of six 10-minute episodes to be shown on the band’s website. The series (also entitled Brain Thrust Mastery) has a simple premise: Keith and Chris play two guys called Keith and Chris, who are in a band called We Are Scientists, with a sideline in self-help seminars. The premise differs from reality only slightly: in the show, the guys want to quit music and become full-time self-help gurus.
(So for those of us who either stayed up very late last night or woke up early and saw this post, we’re very lucky to have already watched the half of the series!)
