About We Are Scientists

Meeting as students at Pomona College in beautiful Los Angeles California, Keith Murray and Chris Cain would meet drummer Michael Tapper and form We Are Scientists, then just a part time gig for three college students. The trio would migrate to the gentle rolling hills of Berkeley California in 1999 to perform full time as the up and coming musical act We Are Scientists. The three would migrate again to Brooklyn New York and by the end of 2002 would finish recording Safety, Fun, and Learning (In That Order), their debut album. They would follow up with two EPs, Bitching! and In Action, and stick to playing gigs in both California and New York. While the band could feel they were on the cusp of a big breakout, that wouldn't come until 2005.

Uncertainty struck the band in 2007 when longtime drummer Michael Tapper would quit the band days before starting a UK wide tour. Keith and Chris would front the band for the next two years before being joined by Andy Burrows in drums, leaving us with the current lineup of We Are Scientists that we've known and loved for the last five years.

We Are Scientists would be at the forefront of the post punk rock revival, making them peers with other influential rockers such as Arctic Monkeys, We Were Promised Jetpacks, and The Hives.

Previous Hits

It was not until the release of their first single, "Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt" in 2005 that the band would be catapulted into the limelight. We Are Scientists took the alternative rock genre to places that it had been lacking in the prior decade, mixing in punk tempos and alt-indie vocals for a mixture that was both fresh and pioneering. Their single would become a national favorite that lead to the band's 2005 debut on network TV during the Late Show with David Letterman. All this exposure paved the way for the release of their breakout album, With Love and Squalor, which would take the band on tour with names such as The Arctic Monkeys and Mystery Jets.

The band's next full length, Brain Thrust Mastery, would cement them as one of the most influential and innovative bands of the decade, charting at 11th in the UK album charts. Carried by their singles "Dinosaurs" and "Chick Lit", the band gained universal acclaim and showed they were not afraid to push the limits of the genre. Their first single off the album, "After Hours" would show a growing dynamism by the band, demonstrating range and emotion before unseen in their songwriting.

2009-2010 would see the release of their next album, Barbara, as well as addition of current drummer Andy Burrows. Barbara would be covered by their hit single "Rules Don't Stop". After two years of touring, the band returned to the studio to record TV en Français, their fifth and most recent album. Released in March of this year, TV en Français is their most unique and innovative album yet.


Keith and Chris would produce and star in MTV's short series "Steve Wants His Money". The series centers around We Are Scientists moving to the UK to repay a debt. The series can be scene on the web and is in talks for a second part of the series, which band members have described as "likely".

The band is known for their wacky antics on and off stage, including an advice section on their website. Some advice includes "Steal fish from Poseidon (for fisherman)" and "Possess different colors of chalk and wear shoes to work (for school teachers)".

The We Are Scientists Concert Experience

We Are Scientists are performers who put as much energy, passion and spirit into their live shows as they do in their upbeat and fast tempo music. Resisting the urge to dance and sing along is impossible. Don't miss their opening act, where the band sometimes opens for itself under the moniker "Brain Thrust Mastery" to lead "self improvement seminars" before a show. For longtime fans and the uninitiated alike, We Are Scientists put on a hell of a show that you do not want to miss.
