We Are Scientists are gearing up for the release of album number five, ‘Helter Seltzer’.
Set to hit the streets on April 22nd via 100% Records, the fifth LP is being led by ‘Buckle’, a typically acid-tongued cut from the New York power-poppers. Accompanied by a video that sees all manner of foodstuffs launched through the air, its clear that barbed sense of humour is as prevalent as ever.
“Most of our videos start with some kind of longstanding desire that we’re aiming to fulfil,” says singer and undoubted dreamboat Keith Murray. “And well, I’d always wanted to dump food all over Chris’s face. Not in an angry way. I just thought it would be fun, and man I was right.”
The track opens ‘Helter Seltzer’, the full tracklisting for which is as follows:
2. In My Head
3. Too Late
4. Hold On
5. We Need A Word
6. Want For Nothing
7. Classic Love
8. Waiting For You
