We Are Scientists - Fall tour dates with Kings of Leon

We Are Scientists

We Are Scientists are freaking out like a group of 8 year-old boys who've caught a snake in a box, and the reason is that they got the Kings of Leon tour this fall. W.A.S. will spend five weeks in October and November supporting the Southern Rock icons in a slew of American cities that includes Milwaukee.

Until then, New Yorkers Keith Murray (guitar, lead vocals) and Chris Cain (bass, receded reverby vocals), along with stage mates Max Hart (keys, shrieks) and Adam Aaronson (drums, haircut), will bring their hook-heavy, chop-confident second album, 'Brain Thrust Mastery', back to Europe for a late-summer seven-country swing that will include the U.K., where the album debuted at No. 11, and a jaunt supporting R.E.M. in Italy, Germany, Lithuania, and Spain.

Early October and an airplane will take the grown-men-without-jobs to Australia for a week of headliners before they literally double their skymile take by flying back home to join Kings of Leon.

The band is fresh off a late-July spot on CBS's The Late Show With David Letterman playing the British Top 15 single "After Hours", about which Letterman himself exclaimed, immediately post-performance, "That's exactly what we're looking for... the beauty!" We Are Scientists' seamless fusion of pop-rock influences stretching from the Sixties to 2012, their "nimble melodies and kinetic enthusiasm", were all praised as "hard to resist" by Alternative Press.

A closer look revealed, though, that nine out of every ten employees of the Alternative Press did manage to resist when faced with the album in stores. We Are Scientists released their first album, 'With Love and Squalor', in 2005, scoring three major British hit singles and gold-certified album sales in the UK.
