Chris on the Worst Gig Ever Podcast

Worst Gig Ever:

EPISODE 90: CHRIS CAIN

The black leather driving gloves come off when We Are Scientists bassman/resident jokester Chris Cain enters “the band area” with KO-kaliber tales of slagging off in the U.K. press and fighting other bands, hosting awards shows and being a “rock star dad. We also get into W.A.S.’s patented brand of comedy “behind the music,” and celebrate the release of their brand spankin’ new album, TV en Francais. ”Bass in your face say peace see ya later” on this week’s WORST GIG EVER!

We Are Scientists premieres their new music video for “Dumb Luck”

“Dumb Luck” bears all the hallmarks of their awesome: the gnarly, nimble riffs, the zingy pace, the way Chris and Keith’s vocals layer up and sound just the right amount of world weary, while simultaneously making you want to jump around like an idiot.

Visually this video is sick. It’s the goriest, grossest three minutes the pair have ever had a hand in. It also contains some vital life lessons like exercising is dangerous, juicing is for losers, DIY is not for dummies, and don’t smoke on the fire escape, you dirty hipster.

They played “Sprinkles” and “Make It Easy” for the first time here in LA and I can’t get over how good these tracks are. I was freaking out over the new songs they played earlier this year but geez these other new ones- hot damn, I’m so excited for the new album and tour! (Buy tickets to the 2014 tour, everybody!)

And here’s some photos from the show (the rest of ‘em are here on Flickr):
