Formed in Berkeley, California in the late 90s, We Are Scientists has released eight studio albums. Their debut album ‘With Love and Squalor’, sold more than 100,000 copies within the first six months, and saw the band become a breakthrough success with their first major label release. This was then followed up by their sophomore album ‘Brain Thrust Mastery’, which along with support from the likes of Jo Whiley and Edith Bowman, would see the poppy, hook-laden release reach #11 in the UK charts.
Their current lineup consists of founding members Keith Murray (Guitarist and Vocalist) and Chris Cain (Bassist), with Keith Carne (Drummer), who joined the band in the studio and for live performances in 2013.
As well as music, Keith and Chris are known for their comedy, often injecting humour into their interviews, press releases and off-the-cuff jokes at their live shows. This has been carried over as part of producing many of their own music video treatments and their 2009 series of television shorts Steve Wants His Money made for MTV, as well as a podcast series titled Dumpster Dive in 2020.
