We Are Scientists announce new album 'Lobes'

Following up the release of their much-loved LP 'Huffy' last year, We Are Scientists have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Lobes' will include the recently shared lead single 'Operator Error', and is set to be released on the 20th January via 100% Records.

Speaking about the new record, singer Keith Murray said, "Lobes is the name of a cereal of black spheres invented by Chris Cain (don’t ask). Obviously, the record has little to do with breakfast, but I loved the associations that the word has with cerebral biology, and the evocation of sci-fi, and a sense of something both fundamentally human and utterly unknowable. The word “lobes" makes me think of the body horror films of David Cronenberg, but also of the chatty comedies of manners of Whit Stillman. I really love the reaction it evokes in people: everybody knows the word “lobes,” but for whatever reason, being challenged to define it consistently scares them, or angers them, or makes them laugh, or makes them tell me to “shut up.” What a great reaction to such a benign word. It’s also pretty fun to say. Lobes."
