Artist: We Are Scientists
Album: Brain Thrust Mastery
Label: Astralwerks
Release Dates: May 13th, 2008

We Are Scientists is Keith Murray on guitar and lead vocals, Chris Cain on bass guitar and backing vocals. Keith and Chris were supposed to have first gotten the band together in Pomona but they disabused me of that misinformation in the below interview. Their full length album, Brain Thrust Mastery, comes out next week on Astralwerks and it's a collection of 11 rock tunes that range from disco-tinged to outright pop.

This is a fun album that will power a fun show when W.A.S. makes their way to Los Angeles later this Summer. In the meantime all we can do is listen. We Are Scientists kindly took a break during their current tour of the UK to answer some of our questions:
