New York indie-rockers We Are Scientists are a bunch of cheeky wags aren't they? Hop over to their My Space page and check out their World Cup song, "Goal England" - I'm sure it's a p*sstake. Or maybe not, maybe they really were singing for Engerland. They'll certainly be singing IN England pretty soon as the rousing quartet return to these shores in November for a tour.
Recent album "Barbara" is the inspiration behind the tour's title, "Barbarians", and will no doubt feature as part of the set-list including the recent single "Nice Guys". Although the album missed out on a Top 40 showing, tickets will sell quickly for a band notorious for their energetic and ferocious live performance, recently featuring ex-Razorlights' drummer Andy Burrows at some of their dates.
As well as their Reading and Leeds appearances, the boys tackle Portsmouth on 15th November, followed by Birmingham (16th), Bristol (17th), Norwich (19th), Manchester (20th), Shepherd's Bush (21st), Liverpool (22nd), Leeds (24th), Glasgow (25th), Newcastle (26th) and finally Nottingham (27th). Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 23rd November.
