We are Scientists tour mostly just the states this July during "The American U.S. America Tour"

Having racked up a UK top 15 hit with first single "After Hours" and having sent the album that birthed it, Brain Thrust Mastery, to #11 on the album charts (a position the band like to refer to as "the pole position" owing to "the shape of the numbers"), We Are Scientists were ready to hang up their hats, telling anyone in earshot that they were now "officially bigger than Madonna in terms of height," and that their only professional plans were to "get laid." But after several grueling lectures from management and weeks of 'torture light' administered by the heads of Astralwerks and EMI, the affable pop duo agreed to tour the States this summer.

Brain Thrust Mastery (released last week) follows the New York band’s critically acclaimed 2005 debut, With Love & Squalor, which went gold in the U.K., and about which Spin asserted: "It might take an alchemist to morph lead into gold, but these Scientists can mix punk, funk, and a lil' bit of disco to yield a shiny, metallic bar of infectious, genre-bending rock."
