We Are Scientists unveil new single 'Handshake Agreement'

With their highly-anticipated new album set to land in the coming months, We Are Scientists have dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Handshake Agreement' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, featuring YouTube music critic Beef Harmon£y (who we recognise from somewhere), and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Contact High' in previewing their new LP 'Huffy', which is out on the 8th October via 100% Records.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Keith Murray said, “Do you ever find yourself in the middle of a passionate argument about politics or art or, like, whether people should ever wear hats (no, they shouldn’t, unless it’s very cold), and suddenly realize that, somehow, you’re making a desperate defence for a position that you don’t even really believe, or care about, or have the slightest bit of real information on? Sadly, I’m in this position all too often. It’s a bad habit, and I’m working on it. Please let me use this moment to apologize to my bandmates, to my wife, to anyone who’s ever talked to me after two beers.

"I could get into how, as far as I can tell, social media has reduced public conversation to this sort of dialogue, where everything is half-believed but doubly-passionate, but, let’s be honest nobody wants to hear already-obvious social theory from a guitar player.

"Suffice it to say that Handshake Agreement is my song about Twitter, and how whatever servers it’s being run on should be shot out of a cannon into the ocean, as quickly as possible, thanks.”
